This Video Helps You Pick The Best Motherboard For Your Build

I have built every computer I've used since I was eight. Motherboards are still my least favourite component to buy. This video helps break down what to look for in a main board.

When you're buying a motherboard, there are lot of things to consider. You need to look at long-term upgrade capabilities (don't get stuck with a mobo that maxes out at 8GB of RAM like I did in 2014), support for esoteric features like dual graphics cards, on-board ports and more.

When it comes to buying motherboards, there's no one right answer but this video covers more features for you to consider than most people could ever need. Pick out the ones that sound interesting to you and focus on those. If you find all of this overwhelming, you can also check out our guide to building the best PCs for different budgets.

What is the best choice for a motherboard? — The Final Answer [Linus Tech Tips]


    Its funny how different peoples experiences can be. I built my first computer last year and i thought the Motherboard was the easiest part to choose

      Well it does come down to your needs. For me it is usually there hardest part. How many front and rear ports and of what type. Pci-e ports and their configuration. Sata ports and type. Will I use m2 in the future, do I need on board WiFi. Audio options. Then combine that into a compromise with price.

    gotta a friend at work who is a senior IT Technician.
    cheap MOBO, cheap RAM, 980Ti and mid level CPU, saved him self a shit load of money which helped him make the jump from a GTX 970 to a 980TI coz of the savings he made on less important components elsewhere.
