Choosing the right motherboard for your gaming rig

The motherboard is going to be an integral part of your gaming PC build. Every part will plug into it so it is important to choose the right one.

Knowing which CPU you want will go a long way to helping you choose a motherboard. After you get your CPU you’ll have an idea of the socket it’s using. The current 8th gen Intel CPUs requires an LGA1151 socket while AMD chips use AM4 sockets. Match these up and you should be ready.

Motherboards come in three main sizes: ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX. You can think of them as large, medium, and small. This is important because the smaller your motherboard has the lesser slots and features it has. That means that a smaller motherboard will have fewer PCIe slots, RAM slots, and other connectors.

These are some of the important factors you need to consider when choosing the right motherboard for your gaming PC.

This Cyber Monday, there are a lot of great motherboard deals available. There are excellent motherboards for Intel and AMD chips so you can start building your PC.
