Hi everybody :
Currently, I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Motherboard, Windows 7 Pro 32-bit, 500 GB Hard Drive, 3Gb RAM (no Video Card......mine died). I thinking about having to get another motherboard. The Ethernet Controller died. Anyway......I'm not sure which is better. A Gaming motherboard or a "good" regular motherboard. I'm thinking in terms of using it for 3D Rendering. Once I decide WHICH motherboard, of course that'll dictate WHICH Intel processor. In this case, would a gaming motherboard be faster (more robust) ?. I pretty much know WHAT I want. At least 3 PCI /PCI-E slots for one.......and the usual....USB......Ethernet port....etc..........
Advice ? garystan

If you only replace the motherboard you will need one that will run your existing Cpu (an Intel i3-3220 going by your Speccy data in your other thread) and Ram.

Why not just fit an internal or Usb network adapter ?
