10. Does the motherboard affect gaming?

Yes, the motherboard does affect gaming, because it features the most important parts of your computer, such as graphics cards and CPU. The motherboard is needed for a computer to be functional so if it dies you cannot use the computer until it is fixed.

It is essential that you keep in mind the hardware you plan to use while purchasing the motherboard. For example, you should keep in mind the number of PCIe slots you will need for video cards, drive bays you may require for memory and USB ports that are needed for connecting peripherals.

Many games require very heavy duty memory so make sure you find a motherboard that stands up to the rigorous requirements.
