I am still not getting Asrock B450 Pro4 but found another variant of same, which is
Asrock B450M Steel Legend



I compared the specifications of both and it looks similar. Should I order it?

Read feedback about above Mobo that it doesn't detect ryzen 3600.

How about this? Going little above budget but can be considered

Should I go with below Mobo? I m planning for 8GB x 2 Ram. If I want to add another 2 sticks after few years, then do I have buy same brand/frequency? If yes then it would be hard to get same. If I buy 2 dimm slots Mobo then I sell old and buy 16*2 32GB


Or

Same frequency, yes. Same brand, quite depends though recommended; but I think by then 16 GB*2 would be common kit. So buying new by selling current should be doable.

@vyral_143 so which one is better choice from above two? Asrock B450 Pro4 is not available anywhere. And I don't want to spend more than 8k on mobo. Or if u suggest any other Mobo in that budget.

From listed two, Gigabyte B450M DS3H. IIRC, @Charun used this board to build a machine around Ryzen 3 3200G

That is good option. Also I found below.
I prefer any Mobo from techmartunbox as this is local shop and if bios is not updated for ryzen 3600 then he will do it, else I have to get 2600 to update bios or take to service station.

I have to final this rig this week only

Latest motherboards are updated with beta bioses which support Ryzen 3000 series processors.

For Ryzen 3600, better avoid Gigabyte B450 boards.
It's been nearly 4 months. Many of the boards purchased by forum members are 3000 ready. You won't likely to see that in the description (seller's listing) for most of the boards. All you have to do is confirm with the seller, if the stock is old ask the seller to update BIOS for you.
Yeah, TUF M Pro Gaming is a decent board.

Ordered Asrock B450M Pro4-F


Will buy processor and RAM locally as it is cheaper than local IT depot
Motherboard received. But local dealer does not have Corsair CX series PSU, he suggested VS series which I rejected.
Any other brand/model for PSU, else I have to order it online as well and wait for more time.
