ATI Technologies Buying AMD 2700 so which mobo should I buy.

Unfortunately my son has got his patience from me which means he has none. He want his new PC for his birthday (tomorrow) or as soon as possible after. He's already told his mum, the boss, I'm getting him one I'm giving him my CPU, mobo and my old 16gb ram and I've just ordered an AMD 2700 CPU for myself. The big question is which mobo should I buy. I know it's a side grade for me but I'm happy with that TBH. The 2700 is only £30 dearer than the 2600X so is a bit of a no brainer at 1440p.

I'm looking at the Asus Prime X470 Pro at £140 or the Asrock Master SLI X470 at £125. The price isn't an issue and I do prefer Asus boards if I'm honest, however I have owned an Asrock board that was excellent. If anyone has experience of these boards or manufacturers please let me know.
Ryzen 7 3800X, ASUS Prime X470 Pro, KFA2 RTX 3090 SG, 16GB Crucial DDR4 LPX 3000 Ram, iiyama G-Master GB3466WQSU 3440x1440 freesync 144hz, 250gb Samsung SSD, 750mb Seagate SSHD, 2TB Seagate Barracuda H/D, 1 TB Samsung H/D, 850w PSU, Windows 10
