Top 5 Gaming Motherboards for AMD under Rs.20000

Choosing a CPU or a Graphics card for a system isn’t much of an issue since it is very clear from the start which platform will you be comfortable with i.e. AMD or Intel. Same with GPUs a little bit of research will help you buy the best bang for buck GPU which will give you a good price to performance ratio. But choosing a motherboard might be a little tough considering what you actually want to do with the board. If your requirements are minimal, any basic A520 motherboard will do, but if you want to go into overclocking then you will be needing a B550 or an X570 motherboard.
Almost all Ryzen processors support overclocking so if you want to overclock properly, a good B550/X570 motherboard is very much recommended. So I listed down the top 5 motherboards for AMD just under Rs.20000.

Asrock B550 Steel Legend

The B550 Steel Legend motherboard from ASRock.
