When PC gamers are building computers, many forget the importance of choosing a good motherboard to go along with their electronic Frankenstein’s monster. Motherboards can go for anywhere from $50 to $900 for the ROG Maximus VIII Extreme/Assembly by Asus. Here are the best gaming motherboards for three price ranges to choose from, according to Digital Trends.

1.       X299 Aorus Gaming 9

The X399 Aorus Gaming 7 from Gigabyte comes in at a slightly more affordable $390.
