Thread: Are there any real good motherboards out there?




  1. #1

    Default Are there any real good motherboards out there?

    I have been looking at newegg for motherboards as I am thinking about building another computer. Are there any good ones out there? According to the ratings there are too many bad eggs;)I am not a gamer but I need a good motherboard because I work it hard with video editing. I like a well built board but there seems to be so many negatives toward them unless you want to pay 300 for one. Anyone care to comment on this.

    Video Edting PC:

    Lots of HDD space

    you Dont need a powerful graphics card so SLI/crossfire shouldnt be necessary.

    Really theres soo many choices right now, u can basically get anything and it will be good.
    Try to go for at least an intel G45 chipset or something similar, preferably a P45 chipset.
    They shouldnt be too expensive... < $200.

    Regarding negative comments, its prob just their judgement, so its all relative. You can safely ignore it if its just one bad comment out of 100.

    You have to take neweggs reviews with a grain of salt...lots of wanna be computer builders..read the forums and post some questions about the motherboards you are interested in...ive had many motherboards that newegg reviews were so so and i thought they were great boards...
    are you looking at an intel build or amd?

    By Funny I mean there are a lot of good boards out there! There are also a lot of bad boards out there. But one board would be great for gaming and not as good for Video Editing. and another would be just the opposite! I am not an expert but I know that most boards will do a good job for the average user....

    Good luck finding that perfect board for your use!

    The board that has the intel I7 chip is supposed to be good for editing but more than I want to spend right now. I may just wait a year and then look again.

    I know, that is partially why I bought this board. I want to get into editing(mostly for my own family vids). I read a lot about the I7 and it seemed a good fit. Also it is pretty good for gaming so far!

    What price range are you after?
    ASUS P6T Deluxe is definitely a good board for OC. It's a bit too pricy thou but worths for money a lot of features, express gate SSD, DTS SS Ultra PC, Next-Gen Core i7 Processor Support, Intel X58, SLI, CrosFire X on demand, SAS onboard, turbo V plus OC Palm...
    me keeping my eye on the ROG gene series, heard dat asus X58 Rampage II Gene is comin soon, hv anyone heard or it? cool or not?
