It's important you pick the best motherboard you can afford when looking to build a PC with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor. This CPU is part of the Ryzen 5000 Series, which requires a 500-series AMD motherboard. We've rounded up the best AMD Ryzen 7 5800X motherboards from which to choose.

Choosing the best 500-series motherboard

Getting the best motherboard is important as it provides all the power to your CPU, RAM, and beyond. The Ryzen 7 5800X isn't the most powerful processor from AMD, but it can still take advantage of X570 motherboards. Still, you can get by with a B550 board without noticing much of a major difference.

Our top pick for the Ryzen 7 5800X is the ASUS Strix X570-E, which comes with super-fast LAN ports and PCIe 4.0, thanks to the X570 chipset from AMD. It's not the most affordable, but will easily handle even the most powerful Ryzen 9 processor.

If you want to save a little but still enjoy all the benefits of X570, the ASUS Prime X570-P is a great second choice, coming with PCIe 4.0 support, high-quality components, and a great BIOS at a more affordable price.
