Advise to what motherboard are out there overall pleasant experience (Asrock, Asus, Gigabyte, MSI )

Thanks, I know It seems to be unnecessary, but I am thinking ahead what if I do want to change video card. In terms of the m.2 version 860 evo, didn't even realize it. Good call
I am bit back and forth about the whole motherboard, each has their drawback, but I have to get past that, However, I do need help with this particular area. There seems to be many factor such as VRM, B450 or x-470.
A lot good info from different perspective, hardocp, anandtech, hardware nexus and people's opinion. I happen to be lost. I do not want to buy a motherboard that I regret later.
