We do not believe in the fact that a GPU is the most important part of a gaming PC. A motherboard is the one thing that can harness the power from GPU, CPU, RAM, and other components. So, look for a motherboard that is meant for gaming.

Next comes the GPU. A good CPU can further enhance your gaming experience by offering higher frame rates even on most demanding games. As of now, we suggest getting an RTX GPU from Nvidia with support for Real-Time Raytracing, as games like Battlefield V and The Shadow Of The Tomb Rider does support Raytracing.
