High-end Gaming RIG

As the name states these PC’s are extreme in their performance and Games are the only thing which can optimize the CPU to its fullest, so for high-end gaming rigs, I’ve decided over the following boards which can contribute maximum in performance and easily overclockable to its fullest with convenient overclocking options provided by Gigabyte.

Both the boards below have almost same specs and are manufactured by the same vendor gives same features for both Intel and AMD. However, Intel Core I and X family of CPU’s perform a lot better than AMD’s CPU, and that’s why here I’ll be suggesting to go for Intel one rather than AMD. If you consider future-proof basis, AMD’s upcoming processors in Ryzen lineup supporting the same slot would need you only the same single board for coming years, even if you upgrade to newer versions of Processor.
