I purchased MSI B350 Gaming Pro with a Ryzen 2600 it's been great but if
you plan to run FreeBSD you'll need a graphics card that's supported by the
current graphics drivers.

I found something quite old, it works with the drm2 drivers and there's no
issues. There's list of supported cards here:

There's work being done on improving the graphics drivers, soon you won't
need to get such old GPU.

As for ECC I don't think you'll find many 1st gen ryzen motherboards that
support that but I could be wrong, spec and datasheet here:
