Motherboard Info

Hello im CrazyKilla

I have a Rampage IV Extreme motherboard, and i don't really see the difference between this and my old sh**y motherboard, other than i can change the performance and stuff in the BIOS thing ( i think thats what its called),

My question is, if i got a crap 20 motherboard and a awesome 5000 motherboard, what would the difference be? would the pc work faster? will i get any special features and such?

Some gamers and overclockers try to answer the question: what makes one motherboard more expensive than another.

The difference can be as simple as some performance enhancements, or as huge as support for more memory, faster processors, better capacitors, more ports (internal and external), support for multiple graphics cards, etc.

You are asking a very broad question. Comparing two specific boards would yield much better answers.

That's why, when building a system, you don't just get the best board available, you get the one that fits your needs. Too many people ask others for advice on this, instead of realizing no one else can answer this but them.
