ASRock AB350 Pro4

The ASRock AB350 Pro4 is easily one of our favorite motherboards around $100. It combines great aesthetics with solid performance, making it a stellar choice if you're in need of a relatively inexpensive motherboard. If your build is primarily aimed at multimedia use, we'd go with one of Gigabyte's offerings instead; but if you want to save as much money as possible and have no particular interest in overclocking, then there's no better board for your Ryzen 5 CPU than what ASRock offers here.

ASUS Crosshair VI Hero AM4 ATX

The best motherboard on our list goes to another ASUS Crosshair VI Hero, which is an update to a previous edition that’s been out since before AMD released its first Ryzen processor. This is a great choice because it supports up to four graphics cards, features six SATA 6 Gbps ports and comes with an M.2 slot right off of its AM4 X370 chipset. It also looks cool. If you're looking for something less expensive and without quite as many bells and whistles, you might want to go with one of these other boards instead—just don't expect quite as much from them in terms of feature set or performance.
