I'm building a gaming pc and I wanted to know what "corners I can cut", as in is it alright to get a cheap motherboard that supports pci-e 3 and sata 3 or do motherboards play a big roll for gaming and should I just get an expensive motherboard? Sorry I'm not very tech savvy
I have a sapphire 7970 ghz edition and intel i5 3570k lined up with 700'watt psu.
Those are my expensive parts. Just wondering if I can cheapen other parts and be ok
Ever since Intel’s introduction of the Z77 chipset, motherboard giant Gigabyte has made huge leaps in in improvements on their motherboards all the way from the budget end to the extreme high end and the Z77X-D3H is a perfect example of what kind of top quality products can be achieved.
With support for PCIe 3.0, SATA 3 6Gb/s, 8 channel integrated audio, Gigabyte’s fully digital power delivery system, and ultra durable 4 features, it’s got a lot going for it.
