I have built my own Gigabyte and Intel based systems. Both run just fine.
Now I want to build another system. With a given set of features, I see boards using the same North and South chipsets and very little other differences vary in price by 50-75 bucks. BioStar and MSI are cheap boards, Intel and Gigabyte more expensive.
I find a few reviews on these board and never do I find any negative comment on the actual quality of a board other than “it doesn’t overclock well” or “it needs another ide slot” or other totally useless info.
Seems to me that circuit board contstruction should be the same for everyone? And if after that they are using the same Intel or Nvidia chips==should I be cheap or smart?
Your thoughts appreciated. /// Bobbo
