This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This is a damn good price for this board, this is the same as the MSI MEG ACE X570 board, without all of the RGB (which I prefer personally).

Also, in before all the comments about buying a cheaper board. This has 3 x PCIe 4.0 x 4 M.2 slots, (if you use a 3xxx series Ryzen). Definitely for those trying to add some future 'resistance'.

Also, interesting article related to this board (admittedly, liquid nitrogen cooling (lol)):

Ordering mine shortly!

EDIT:

Should come under the promotion for a free Steam Gift card for $50, requires redemption:

Solid looking board for an OK price.
The rear panel - full of empty space, an old PS/2 connector and blurry red on black text.
All MSI MBs seem to look like that.

Still, it's £100 cheaper then the Gigabyte Aorus Master
Can't find any proper reviews of this so will assume it will be like the rest of MSI X570's affordable range and one to avoid as the rest has awful VRM cooling which is a shame after they dominated the B450 lineup.

You'll have to look up the MSI MEG ACE X570, which is the RGB version of this.

They are similar but not quite the same as the cooling is different as the ACE has a heatpipe through VRMs and chipset to active fan cooling so wouldn't assume it stays as cool as the ACE.

Ah, thanks!

Still, I can't find a similar board with the same features as this. Closest was the Asus X570 Strix Gaming-E, which only has 2 x M.2 slots.

Just looked up the pics, definitely a difference:

Not sure if I could justify the extra £50 for the differences. If it's crap, I'll send it back!

Doesn't look that bad?

Also, a pet peeve of mine is when the connectors are too close together and block other ports.

I'd like leds on the rear panel where they are needed instead of shining a torch.
An old board that I had could do that, think that was also MSI.

7p usb led light comes in handy.
I think within time we will see reviews

But here is the first

Thanks for this, makes me more confident of my choice!
I can't read the name MEG without thinking of this:

Spending more than 150 on a board these days is kinda dumb. Just no need better save that 100 and lut it towards a better case or gpu

Not if you want a X570 board...

All comes down to features, a board below £150 won't have certain features.

Granted, it's a lot of money for those features.

Also, it's easier to swap other parts - the motherboard is a PITA!

Horses for courses ultimately.
The MSI Prestige only has 2 x M.2 slots and that is an E-ATX board.
It does comes with an M.2 expander for 2 more.
Price has gone back up now, will expire. I've ordered mine yesterday luckily before the price increase.
You can get an Ace for £226.09 if you want to take the risk:

I'll pass, but thanks for the heads up.
Think I will, only 1 of the 2 (1 x PCIe) can be used at a time, also bought a 2nd MB from ebay and that did not go well at all.

The rear panel though.
Having extra pcie slots is good for expansion like adding extra m.2 slots using an adaptor
