Hello! I wanted to buy x470 f-gaming for ryzen, but unfortunately she was gone of our stores. So, is x570 tuf good enough? Or is it better to wait for F-gaming return?

I actually wanted to buy TUF Gaming X570 Plus, but after reading lots of reviews and opinions, I obught B450 AORUS Pro instead. If You are buying 6-8 core Ryzen, then X570 make no sense. Of course if You want to use PCIE 4 and latest nVme drive, then go for X570. But IMO, just get good B450 mobo. instead of getting entry level X570. For entry level x570 board, You can get high end B450 with more features than x570 except PCIE4.

...or if you want to upgrage in a few years (2~3) to a 16core CPU (3000 or even 4000 series) get X570.
The TUF Gaming X570 Plus is a solid board at this price point.

I agree with the posts above.
For anything up to a 3900x, a Good B450 or X470 MB will work well.
I currently have a Ryzen 7 3700x on my ROG Strix B450F and it works Great.

If you plan on upgrading to a 3950x then an X570 would be a better choice.
