who would think that buying a motherboard could be so hard? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
If I were to pick a Z77 mATX board I'd take the Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3.

Even over the more expensive Maximus V Gene, as the G1 has a superior power delivery system.

Never, ever, ever, take the reviews from Newegg or Amazon to heart rolleyes.gif, do this to find your perfect mobo...


What's your budget? simple enough, now go to Newegg and search for a mobo in your budget, DON'T read the reviews biggrin.gif

What do you need in a mobo? Crossfire/SLI, bunch of usb 3.0 and such

You probably got a couple of contenders by now, so go to google thumb.gif and search for a review (read a couple of them) for said mobo, if the reviewers don't convince you on the purchase jump to another one and keep at it till you find what you want. Also search OCN for reviews and what people are saying about the mobo, most of the time we know what we are talking about, right guys? biggrin.gif

Remember you can't buy a piece of hardware that will be perfect, we all wish that, but that ain't gonna happen anything time soon or ever.

I went with the gigabyte a77x ud3h. I hope it's everything I need.
