Going for another build for around 1000 and if love to see if the red team is viable as my money is a little tighter this time and I'm looking to get back into PC gaming.

I think for the first time in a while the answer is actually yes

They seem to be a solid choice. Not to mention they are supposely forward compatible with older motherboards. Unlike intel.

Yes, the Ryzen 5 1600 is good value for money imo.

Any of the Ryzens are great.

1600 and up are still solid, though imo the 1400 and r3 CPUs were never a good value, and it's becoming more evident as Intel releases more competitive chips in that range.
The 1600 and 1700 are great, though.

The new Ryzen chips are great, the old FX chips suck.

1600 is a good option for a budget gaming/all around chip and the 1700 is a great value as a workstation chip. They're not as good as Intel's options for gaming but you'll pay a bit more for those as well. It's not like with bulldozer/piledriver where they just weren't even in the same ballpark for most games though. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the 1600 to someone on a budget.

I'm thinking either the 1700 or 1600x. What's a good mobo for either?

The X CPUs are a ripoff, since all they have over the non X CPUs is a bit of clockspeed and "XFR", which just means the CPU will overclock to +~100mhz on it's own if you turn it on. It's super not worth it on chips that are already close to 4ghz.
Get either 1700 or 1600(non X), those are the real deals.
