Something like this but at £250 which I think is possible:

See Im building system for gaming brought MSI b450 pro carbon ac MB was gonna stick a 3600 in and MSI rx580 but read alit of bad reviews on sound from fans and went for power cool Rx 5700xt 8gb which meant I had to send MB back as pci4 so now looking for good deal on x570 and 3600... Dilemas

Not sure what you require in the motherboard, but the bios will be flashed if compatibility is the only concern.

Thanks for the post, yes been looking those up but will see if the MAX boards will offer anything extra.

Next week and we will probably get some reviews on them to see if it's worth it.

Well you went from buying old gen, reading about issues and returned it. I successfully flashed my carbon w/o any issues so far:) B450 > X570 is quite a jump in price, and most definitely not needed for a 5 3600. Anyways up to you of course.

MSI MAX boards have bigger BIOS chip and supports new gen out the box, theres no other differences afaik + maybe they will be supported longer than current b450.
It's a great chip, I do have it up and running on an MSI B450 Carbon Pro...However the current BIOS isn't quite there yet and I have cold boot and idle voltage issues. Mobo was £89 from ebuyer during the Pure20 promo, paid this price for the chip at launch (RRP), £72 for 16gb Trident Z 3200 (running at correct speeds using XmP profile 2)
Overall I would not recommend buying a B350/70 or B450/70 for Zen2 and expecting it to go flawlessly... but from what I've experienced if you persevere and do know you're way around a bios flash and the insides of a PC then the pay off is exceptional.
Overclocking? Forget it really, especially on an older board. My chip can hit the advertised 4.2ghz across all cores and as high as 4.3 with PBO but temps are higher than I'd like (and that's under an NZXT Kraken, not the stock heatsink).
Hopefully time will see these Zen2 CPUs reach their full potential with the maturation of chipset drivers and better BIOSes.

A good X470 or decent x570 board is probably enough future proofing for a good few years.
This is RRP but thats not a bad price point for this but not really a deal.

You could also argue it would be cheaper to buy a cheaper Motherboard today, and then buy a newer motherboard when you need these new features by which time that £170+ Motherboard will likely cost under £100.

The biggest advantage going for the X570 is the PCI 4.0 standard, and for most people buying a 3600 they don't need that extra speed yet. Maybe in a couple of years when the standard is more universally adopted, but not right now.
Any recs on a smaller form factor mobo that is roughly equivalent to atx in specs? I see the same ones mentioned time and time again but they are all ATX.

I bought it at £189 on the 17th from Amazon. It said six week delivery, and sure enough arrived three days later.
I am torn between this and the Ryzen 7 3600x which is about £120 more. Would you think it worth the money?

For gaming, it's not worth it.
I assume the X series means overclockable

Nope. X are just better quality chips and they have higher clocks. That's the difference. Non X are also overclockable.

Assume you mean the 3700x? if you are just gaming no, if you are doing heavy workloads production related then yes its worth it, the difference in cores will majorly benefit me in music production software they take use of all cores.

Not worth upgrading from 2600. Maybe next year.
As long as they sell X570 boards with £200+, they can sell this cpu for £150, would still not look like a deal.

Intel i5-9400F is £140 and Asrock Z370M PRO4 is £106. Total £246.

Minimum price of Ryzen 3600 and X570 mobo is £350, and is not better than 9400F in games. This is £100+ on top of Intel.

I am not an Intel fan by any means, but for gaming, this looks like a VERY BAD deal.

You can run 3rd gen on a 350 even no problems.Lots of test comparing performance on new chipset vs b450 showing no real gain.You lose out on pciex4 and ram speeds,but in real terms that does not justify forking out for a new mobo.If I would build a rig atm I would go with b450 tomahawk from msi or wait to see the new max version and go for that,if msi will not go too high with price.

I would agree with you, if B450/X470 would not have issues working with Ryzen 3000 cpus. In most cases they don't work well, or at all.

B450 Tomahawk is reported not to post at all with Ryzen 3000 series (even with new BIOS).
I was aiming for that motherboard, but now I'm rethinking.

Thats not really true,check the tube,I believe GamersMeld made a direct comparison with x570 and tomahawk b450 with 3600.Running fine with no difference in performance-about 20 points in Cinebench.

You think I'm talking b/s? I was really looking to buy this board.
Have a look at this post on MSI forums directly, and see how many people have issues:

forum-en.msi.com/ind…8.0
All Im saying is,that 3rd gen is running on b450 tomahawk.All the issues Im aware of are with bios,thats why msi is updating their boards for max versions.Get the board and do not update the bios for the latest version.
Why amazon, why!?

Every ryzen deal my resolve weakens... I desperately need the upgrade as well...
Reckon it's worth upgrading from a Ryzen 5 1600?
