    If you want an extra PCIE Gen4 slot, you're gonna want the X570. If I recall correctly, reviews for the X570 E (the version which has built-in WiFi and is similar to the F) are very good and if you can get that (the X570 F or E) below ~$300, it's a great buy.

    I haven't seen/read any reviews of the B550 Vision, so best to do your research on that.

    I have a feeling that if you go with the ROG Strix, you'll regret it everytime you'd peek through your case's panel. If you don't need both Gen4 pcie slots, no real reason to go x570.

    Depends if you're going to do extreme overclocking. If so, then the X570 is for you (aside from the additional slots/lanes for PCIEx 4.0). The vision D B550 is gear for more stability especially in heavy productivity tasks (non-gaming). HTH.

    Thanks!! I was actually greatly underwhelmed by the vision D after watching some YouTube builds. And upon further research the strix boards have much more premium features.

    haha I suspect you hate the strix’s bling-full style. Though I won’t be needing dual x4 pcie slots, the price of the x570 is just too close to the b550 that you’d really gravitate towards it more. I’m also looking at the ASUS prime x570 pro which has has less bling and white heatsinks. Plus the features and hardware are almost identical to the strix. Problem is they seem to not have it available locally. I can import it from Amazon but the price will total around 14k. The strix f gaming is very tempting because it’s only 13,200 in Dynaquest and they have it on stock!! 13,200 is unmatched even in Amazon. They sell the f gaming for over $300!!! The prime is $250 btw.

    Edit: the f gaming is $371 right now in Amazon. The local price of 13,200 is $271 in the current exchange rate. That’s $100 bucks less and an extreme rarity in the current crazy PC market. I kinda wanna rush to Dynaquest right now cause I’m thinking it’s a pricing mistake (before they realize it). I probably will haha

    Well if they did make a mistake, then go jump the gun if you're getting a great deal!

    Yep, I'm never buying Intel products ever again. Suck a thumb on the corner, Intel. (n)
