Advices for WorkStation Motherboard ?

You don't need a "WS" motherboard with like 6 or 7 PCIE slots and crapton of ports if you do video editing and engineering program

Just get something around $120 ~ $150ish for Z170 or sub $200 for X99

Looking for a new WS motherboard, i'm going for 6700 Skylate CPU  for the 1151 socket Or 5820k 6-cores Cpu for 2011 socket.

 

I work with heavy video editing programs

And engineering programs also

So,

Should i go for high-end MB ?

 

Thanks in advance :)

Well for the most part a board is a board, look more at the feature you want for your workstation instead, i think you will find this to better suit your needs in the long term and might result in you being able to spend more elsewhere more HDDs or ssds.
