I am not very knowledgeable about motherboards so try to keep things simple, i need to know what to look when buying a motherboard, the bios and which one is better, the features and which one will benefit me the most, which board got the best reviews and why its worth buying that, you can also tell me about your own experiences if you own these boards before and other things like the fan headers and etc.

thank you.

When I was into overclocking, I bought an Abit ( now went out of biz ) And I bought it for it's overclocking features. Their BIOS allowed me to set DRAM timings, voltages, in addition to front side bus speed. Nowadays, many boards offer these. But I don't overclock any more. I think it is not worth it to buy a good motherboard. Just check for the ports that you need for your devices.

None of those are high end motherboards. All three use the old realtek 892 sound. If you made me choose, I would go with the asrock board however [If it were me] I would prefer something like this board;

Better pw regulation and using the realtek 1220 sound [which is the newest]

It really comes down to what you intend to do with the system. If you are intending on gaming and or overclocking, you do not want a budget or mid-range board. If you are just wanting to run office and do email, a budget board is ok.
