    As far as I can tell, MSI has not released a BIOS update for your board yet. But, are supposed to in the future to enable support for the Ryzen 5000 series.

    The new 5xxx chips have very good IPC and your board could probably use one with at most a bios update.

    I'd check that out first. I am not a fan of upgrading from a low/migrade cpu to a higher end one on the same mobo using the same series. The gain won't be that substantial.

    You'll get way more bang for your buck if you go all in with a high end pick on the next generation of cpu.

    Even if you end up having to buy a new motherboard to hold it all together I think the gains to be had would be quite big, more than enough to justify the extra $125 - $175 imho.

    And you can always repurpose old cpu/mobos into htpc for a media center, 2 pc streaming/recording/multi tasking system, etc. or sell online.

    so if my budget is 160 to 200 for a mobo upgrade what suggestion would you have. and after reading this article i had stopped thinking about a mobo. i got a 130 dollar gift card from my job so im thinking free money towards new mobo if i go all in.
