    Looking to upgrade to an AMD machine, thinking the 3700x. I have all PSU, case, monitor, drives so dont need too much.

    Can anyone suggest some good bits around the 3700x please?

    Much appreciated.

    Im also looking for a bit of future proofing, would i be better spending a bit more for an x570 board?

    not really
    pcie4 isn't going to be useful anytime soon for gpus nor ssds
    probably the only reason i'd suggest getting a (good) x570 board is for its VRM - if you do intend on dropping a 3900x/3950x or its 4th gen equivalent in future
