This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

For support, absolutely. You want to stick with the well-known brands. ASUS, Asrock, Gigabyte, or MSI.

Almost every user will be happy with an affordable low end motherboard. I am not saying a "cheap" motherboard, like a Biostar. I mean if you look at all the boards Asus makes, for example, one of their lower end boards will suffice it for almost every build. You can even get decent overclocks on almost every board out there. You just pay extra for things like multiple pci-e slots for SLI/Crossfire, more SATA/USB connections... that's mostly it. Some people spend $300 on a mobo, what a ripoff. They think it will give them a performance boost... the thing is that the chipset is exactly the same. The difference is in the extras. Also the company. Try to do an RMA with Asrock...

I think all gigabyte motherboards have dual bios... basically if your bios ever becomes corrupt or you fail at updating the bios, it has a bios to fall back on.... Even though I rarely needed it, It has already saved me once.

ok. so it seems it more depends on the parts them.

so what makes for a good cpu? i get graphics cards. and in my experience/friends experience amd cards just tend to not break as often. and just be more reliable. so what makes a good amd processor? the one i got in my current pc is a lil..dated. even for when i got it. (i've been flat out told its terrible) but lets say i had
