Weak motherboard spoils build? Tags: Motherboards Last response: December 24, 2012 5:51 PM in Motherboards Share creativemanagert500 December 24, 2012 4:38:39 PM I'm looking to buy this pre-built for video editing. PremierePro 5 or 6. The cpu and gpu pairing are #17 on the PPBM5 (benchmarks). I'm pretty excited about this. However, I have researched the motherboard and there are some awful reviews.
