This is what I have to say about motherboards choice depends on alot on your use of it, but in general high-end motherboards are made with overclocking in mind and regular motherboards are for basic users or gamers who don’t plan on overclocking. Just want to add that if you ever plan on upgrading your processor (from an intel 2-4 core Pentium 3/5/7 series..etc.) then buy a cheapo mid-range motherboard so you can overclock it later because most intel chips these days need unlocked voltage to be able
Difference Between a “High-end” and “Regular”
All this motherboard mess. It seems to me that they are exactly the same, except for one thing. High-end motherboards come with lots of unnecessary features (realtek HD audio, wireless plx chips etc.) which only increase costs but not performance. So basically there’s no real difference in performance?
Maybe I’m missing some very important information on how high end motherboards are better than regular ones… What do you think? Also, it seems that people recommend certain brands over others (e.g. ASUS or msi). Is this because of their quality? Are all brands equal? And what about other components like memory modules…
A regular computer motherboard is just a regular motherboard. They don’t make regular and high-end versions, only regular or no-name or fake brands (e.g. cross)
There is no such thing as regular/high-end motherboard designations apart from what the manufacturer decides to call it, e.g., A regular mobo could be called ATX while a high-end one could be called ATX+.
Is there a difference between high and low-end mobos apart from the price and quality of components used? Is it worth spending $300 on an Asus Crosshair V Formula or just as good with one that costs half the price. Are all brands equal or are certain ones more reliable than others? Will all memory modules work in any board, no matter what brand they may be?”
