Hey guys,

I was just wondering what the best RGB motherboard there was in the market for 250~. (Part list in on my profile)

Thanks.

If you allready own that don’t upgrade your motherboard, instead if you going to upgrade go to 9600k and z390. Additionally get some quality DDR4 3000 RAM if again you haven’t allready bought the RAM you have.

Why you wanna buy the best (and most probably expensive) Z270 board?

Such a board can't accommodate the newer 8th and 9th gen. Intel CPUs, so that would be just a waste of money.

That's my opinion anyway. :)

And the ram selection is very poor.

You fill up all the slots with value ram modules for getting a quantity of 32GB, they run at a lower speed, are looking terrible and you pay an arm and a leg for those.
