Great budget mobo from MSI, Support for everything you need to get going including an NVMe m.2 slot which I'd highly reccomend utilising with a min 256GB m.2 SSD for the OS drive.

Good board for beginner builds - compatible with 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs out of the box. Be aware that larger GPUs will block the 4-lane PCIE express (such as for WIFI adaptors).
