@liqmat; what CPU did you use on this then ??
And how do you like/experience it vs whatever cpu you had in the X470 board - big/small reall world difference ?
(as I've read all kinds of warnings about going over the 2000 series or a certain AGESA version, and really want as little potential hassle/risk/instability as possible, sacrificing some minor? speed/cpu power in the process)
And, what benefits are there really, in your opinion, of the X570 vs X470, when using Windows 7?
I suppose if you can safely(?) use say a 5800X cpu, you also benefit from faster RAM options, but... if focused on gaming, will you notice it much on the (low core) games that are actually supported on Win7 ? (all the new fancy games require DirX 12 apparantly, limiting them to Win10/11+)
As for LAN , Wifi, and whatnot, I have no real need for that. This will most likely remain an air gapped static gaming PC with no internet.
(no Steam in sight... 😋 )
And yes, funny you should mention it - I am trying to 'stock up' (oh man, those prices....!) on decent Nvidia 3000 GPUs as well, will be a loong time investment - as the last Win7 computer I'll ever build© would surely benefit from some spare parts in the coming decades... 😆
PS: +was quite surprised to see the RTX 3090 Ti getting a Win7 driver this spring....
(while all the other/older cards lost their driver support in September last year)
