oh I'm so sorry this must be an Intel CPU web site!!
I must have sinned in using THAT AMD CPU word !! Oh LORD IN HEAVEN PLEASE PLEASE Forgive ME For I Have SINNED amongst those upon this web site

let me ask it this way what chip set is better with less problems the 470 or 570 ??

if again I have sinned PLEASE FORGIVE ME

if it helps I do have a Asus ROG gaming laptop that is about 7 years old that still works!!!
does that qualify for an answer ??

you can get a x570 board for cheaper than a x470 board then have the update path to the newer ryzen 9. plus the x570 has pcie4.0. which is also more future proof.
