ASRock B75M Good for Gaming?

Is the ASRock B75M Motherboard good for gaming? In other words, can it hold up heat and high power usage when gaming? (Building this for a friend which is why I wanna be 100% sure)

  1. It's fine as long as he doesn't want to OC (can't OC with B75 boards).
  2. there isnt really a "gaming motherboard". the b75 would work fine
  3. Yes
  4. I currently use the ASRock B75M-DGS because it was cheap and I have an i3. It's cheap, has SATA3, USB 3.0 and works. Nothing else really to say about it.
  5. Yes that will be fine.

    The only drawback to this motherboard is that since it is the b75 chipset, you will not have turbo boost or OC potential at all.

    would you computer be a bit weaker compared to others? yes if your processor is one that has turbo boost or OC potential. It will only run at max stock speed

    for example an i5 2300 will run at 2.8 ghz but can turbo boost up to 3.2 ghz. With this mother board you won't be able to hit the 3.2. Is this a big deal? no not for a budget gaming computer at all

    Will this effect your games. No not really.
  6. Uhm, the B75 chipset has Turbo Boost 2.0.

    Straight from Intel
