So I have been looking around and research on for building a new PC rig for Gaming/Work, so I saw that Intel is the better way to go than AMD ones. So I looked for Intel powered Mobo's and I got this three.

1. GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-Gaming 5
GA-Z97X-Gaming 5

2.MSI Z97 MPOWER Max
MSI Z97 MPOWER Max

3.Biostar GAMING Z97X
Biostar GAMING Z97X

So can anyone tell me pick which is one is best, but I like the "GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-Gaming 5" and although they are all DDR3, So anyone can indicate DDR4 Mobo's. Also the best components for the motherboards e.g GPU, CPU, Tower Case, Power supply etc.






Thank you............

First off DDR4 is only for Haswell-e at the moment so x99 motherboards. And for help we will need to know your budget, location, and what applications or games you need it to play.

Is that for the motherboard alone? If you give us a total price for the pc we can suggest the gpu, cpu, and other components as well.

Yes this is just for the Mobo I doubt $220US will give me a full gaming rig , because ordering a system and having it shipped to my country the custom/duty taxes would double in price. So it would be better to get the components bit by bit and cheaper for me.

Any of those 3 should be good for you. Some others to look at are the Asrock z97 OC Formula and the Asus z97 pro or z97 A.
You can't go wrong with any of those choices in my opinion.
