Question

Motherboards guide.
I've had this laptop for about a year. But soon I will go for a more powerful desktop....
Im looking for a desktop for my next 3-5 years.
So i'll go for a 100-130(200-250$)motherboard.
Is that good enough?
. Then studying I found out it'd be better to buy the best motherboard with a middleclass dual core ...in the idea to be able anytime in the future to add more ram,hard drive, change cpu, or whatever.
Is there any guide a bit more advanced than this?
On some sites the very similar two motherboards ,even written with same specs come with very different prices...!!! Why? what do they hide?


Answer

Hey Mike,

A $200-$250 motherboard should be a very good board. If you are looking to upgrade in the future, I would advise you to allocate most of your money for the CPU/Motherboard. Hard drive space is cheap and keeps getting cheaper. Memory is also pretty cheap to add as well. Changing out a CPU is not usually the best "bang for your buck", especially when you already have a middle of the line CPU to start with. I cannot help much with the pricing. In some cases it could be a sale or brand that forces the price higher for similar specs.
