More about motherboard good gaming
  1. Sure is.
  2. oh thanks
  3. for straight forward usage i think it's ok, not bad actually.
    but i do have some comment, those coils could use some cooling
    the sata ports' location is not that good, but of course i am just nitpicking, but for overclocking, those heatsink should help.

    of course it depends on your budget, but i think this board is ok. but i would suggest you read some reviews if you havent done so yet
  4. Please stop typing before you embarrass yourself more ^.

    That is one of the best brands, highest end LGA 1155 chipset and only thing the motherboard is lacking for gaming would be CF/SLI support for future upgrades.

    ok then, what motherboard could you recommend?
  6. Don't listen to him that's a great motherboard.
  7. The one you mentioned or an asrock z77 extreme4 which is more budget oriented. Almost any Z77 motherboard will be good for you....
  8. thanks guys, i appreciate it all. i just want to play bf3. :D
  9. Well to be honest unless you have a k series processor you really don't even need a Z77 chipset. Although nothing bad will come of it if you do get one. You need a good GPU, PSU and CPU combo to be able to run games. The motherboard just has to have support for that CPU, and have a PCI-E 2.0 or 3.0 x16 port for the GPU. The PSU just have to be of a good reliable brand capable of making enough power for the system.
  10. Look at this review for bf3 performance http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graphics-performance,3063.html

    For MB, as long as the MB has the pcie 3.0 x16/2.0X16 (if you want cf/sli, you need have two of pcie3.0/2.0X16 =X8/X8), oc, etc.).

    You need the good GPU check the link , intel cup, and 8gbRAM then you are good for that game.
