Amd Ryzen 7 3700X is a perfect CPU for someone who is looking to build an all-purpose PC. It can handle gaming, video editing, rendering, and content creation with ease. However, if you want most of this Zen 2 Ryzen CPU then you will probably need the best motherboard. Below we have some good AM4 ready amd motherboards which you can consider.

What are the things you should consider when getting a new motherboard? First is the Form Factor. There are a total of three main form factors, ATX, micro ATX, and Mini ITX. They basically define the size of the motherboard and thus the size of the overall PC. ATX is the biggest and mini ITX is the smallest

The second thing is the chipset. The Ryzen 7 3700X supports a variety of chipsets. Out of them B450, B550, x470, and x570 are the most popular AMD chipsets. Things like overclocking capabilities and reliability depend on the chipset.

Another you have to look for connectivity options. It includes stuff like USB ports, Type-C ports, Wi-Fi connection, Bluetooth connection, RAM slots, PCIe slots, and more.
