How does this compare to the ASRock B450M-HDV HERE for £56.99

1 and if you use it, 2 SATA ports become non functional.
I'm planning to upgrade from my old I7 4770k to and (should it?) Is it better to wait for the new CPUs , and will tis board support them, or should I upgrade now ?
Is it worth upgrading my poor 320m

Support for B450 boards for Zen 3 hasn't been announced. Doesn't mean they won't support them, but you are better off investing in a B550 for future proofing. If you buy this then you are potenially stuck with Zen 2.

My advice is don't build your PC by collecting bits here and there. Save your money up and buy in one go. You'll pay less overall

WRT to this board, it's OK for a Ryzen 5. MSI B450 Mortar or AsRock Pro4 would probably be better for a micro ATX case, which is a great form factor. Not a fan of gigabyte boards though so I'm probably biased.

Edit: actually this board is very low tier for the price so I'd avoid. B450 PRO VDH MAX or AsRock Pro4 (if you need the free 1x slot for a WiFi card) are better for less money

Get the B550 board, you'll have a definite upgrade path for the new CPU's due in a few weeks. Forget the b450 boards their false economy for 2020. A motherboard is the foundation of your Rig. B550 gives you choice.

Then you'll be SATA-round with a bunch of empty ports

How could grabbing great deals over time possibly cost you more than buying it all in one go, at probably RRP prices?

1) Over time, prices generally reduce. So by the time you actually end up building the PC, the saving you made previously, if any, is greatly diminished.

2) Waiting to build your parts means you can cross generations, eg right now. B550 has just released, soon pushing B450 prices down. New CPUs and GPUs are releasing very soon, pushing current gen down in price.

3) The beauty of PC is that there is great choice of parts, so you can pretty much always get a great deal by substituting parts. For instance this motherboard is pretty low tier - there are cheaper and better alternatives.

4) All the extra time you own the product without buying it is eating into your warranty period

Some deals are worth snapping up in advance because they are SO good, like the ebay one recently, or if they are items that have volatile stock ie power supplies

Of course, this is just my opinion based on what I see as a PC Services business, ordering around £10k in parts each month, so to each their own

Both are poor. AsRock Pro4 B450m is a better alternative, if you need that 1x slot for a WiFi card, otherwise MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX is superior
