Motherboard

The best gaming motherboards.

Choosing the best gaming motherboard can have a huge impact on any PC build. It will first determine which of the best gaming CPUs you can put into your rig and which will impact virtually every aspect of your new PC. The most important choice to make will be who will take you into the big debate between AMD and Intel. This will determine how much you will spend on your next CPU purchase, how much you will really have to spend on a motherboard and how much you will have to spend on a quality graphics card. AMD processors are cheaper on a per-core basis and don't need a super high-end card to provide high-end performance with them. This means you can save some money by spending on a better GPU. If you forget the value proposition for a minute, Intel chips will offer the best gaming performance ever, they simply can't match AMD's accessibility or core count. But your choice of gaming motherboard will also affect other parts of your build, not least the size of your PC. There are three main dimensions to be addressed: standard ATX, Micro ATX (or mATX) and Mini ITX. These days this doesn't mean a compromise in terms of performance, but only a compromise in terms of functionality and number of slots. Less memory, NVMe SSDs and graphics card slots, for example.
