Motherboard Trifecta

If you're looking for a new motherboard, check out the X79 loving ASUS Rampage IV Extreme BF3 over at VortezASRock has their X79 Extreme9 board over at HardwareSecrets for some action as well.  If you are happy with something a little older, check out the Gigabyte H61M-S2P-B3 at FutureLooks as it is a great choice for those not wanting to spend a bucket of cash on the latest gear.

A basic assumption users make is that they have to buy a model motherboard somewhere in the middle just short of the flagship to get the most out of the processor or peripherals. But that’s not always the case. For example, this entry level micro-ATX motherboard from GIGABYTE called the H61M-UD2-B3 offers the same advanced Sandy Bridge performance features as premium boards, but costs well under $100.
