Closed Importance of Motherboard for good gaming using GTX 560 ti or above Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Motherboards Graphics Last response: January 25, 2012 7:35 AM in Graphics & Displays Share xtcx January 24, 2012 8:35:49 AM Friends, What is the importance of Motherboard , I mean how significant it is, that it can affect FPS\other performance?. I currently am using GTX 560, probably plan to buy i5 2300 CPU. So preferred mobo is simple Intel motherboard which is actually cheaper ( INR 3500 or US$ 65). Only Intel is available here. http://ark.intel.com/products/54876/Intel-Desktop-Board... Does it sound well?

That mobo has a h61 chipset, which is older, I'm not sure if it will affect fps too much.... brythespy January 24, 2012 9:03:18 AM The Motherboard is, possibly, the Most important aspect of your computer. There are many things that can slow down FPS in games, for example: Slow SATA Connection can result in slow World/map loading, longer wait to move files. A Slow FSB Speed means generally slower performance because it will take longer to get information from the HDD-RAM-CPU-GPU And out to your display. The Motherboard you listed is overall good because it supports DDR3 and Full speed SATA.

If you want a mobo that unlocks the full potential of the GTX560 And support for i5, i7 Get something like this >>This<< simon12 a b U Graphics card a b V Motherboard January 24, 2012 2:43:44 PM brythespy said:No Do not buy that motherboard it is NOT compatible with the i3 or the i5 Processors.

The mobo DH61WW supports for i-series. Also as I said, I dont want SLI or other add-on feature. I want to unlock my GTX 560 beast to its full power, for that I need a powerful CPU such as i5-2300 and a decent simple mobo. xtcx January 25, 2012 7:31:51 AM Best answer selected by xtcx.
