What mobo should I use with a 5950x?

edited January 2022 in Help Choosing Parts

I already have most parts for my build like the CPU (5950X), GPU (3080ti), 32GB RAM (Planning to add another 32GB for 64 total) and a cooler [Arctic Liquid cooler II 360]

I selected a motherboard, but I'm not sure if I should just buy the aorus elite that I have in the build [which is currently a placeholder] or try to find a different motherboard online. I don't think I'll be going down the overclocking route with this build. But I'd ideally want a lot of usb ports and access to wi-fi 6. I've been looking at b550 and x570 mobos for the last few days and can't decide which to pick up. The crosshair VIII mobos are very high on the price range (not out of budget), but if a cheaper alternative can be found, I'd appreciate that.

Edit: Motherboard recommendations don't have to be restricted to ones in microcenter.
