Motherboard brands

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So there are ATX Z170 boards for Msi and gigabyte same price and everything but I was wondering which brand should I choose or will it make a difference? I'm wondering about the differences in bios' and which would you guys prefer. Also gigabyte has a usb 3.1 port and Msi doesn't. Thanks!

If it's a budget board then go gigabyte. because MSI's low end boards are AWFUL.

Look for:

Fan locations and if PWN or not (PWM is better)

SATA locations and amount

M.2 if you'll use it.

USB 3.0 and 3.1.

Aesthetics.

Voltage regulator modules.

You can bark like a dog, but that won't make you a dog.

You can act like someone you're not, but that won't change who you are.

 

Finished Crysis without a discrete GPU,15 FPS average, and a lot of heart

 

How I plan my builds -

Spoiler

For me I start with the "There's no way I'm not gonna spend $1,000 on a system."

Followed by the "Wow I need to buy the OS for a $100!?"

Then "Let's start with the 'best budget GPU' and 'best budget CPU' that actually fits what I think is my budget."

Realizing my budget is a lot less, I work my way to "I think these new games will run on a cheap ass CPU."

Then end with "The new parts launching next year is probably gonna be better and faster for the same price so I'll just buy next year."
