I've actually gone back to stock on my 2700 because I just can't see any difference from my 7700K @ 4.8/5.0 except in synthetic benchmarks (< 3%/5%). TBH don't need the heat or power of an overclock when I can't tell the difference. Loving this CPU.
If you're looking for a long term, then yeah X470-Pro should be fine too as well as you just simply update the bios to support Zen 2 CPU compatibility. I won't replace my X370-Pro until 2021 or 2022. Maybe ASUS Prime X670-Pro with PCIE5.
