Is motherboard durability a concern?

  1. Yes, motherboards should be built to last

  2. No, most upgrade their gaming rigs every 3 or so years, anyway

    I had 3 boards at the time,

    One olde Gigabyte GA-7VTXE+, 5 years many of them 24/7 and still was fine but I had to throw it because I broke it accidentally

    An Asrock AliveNF6P-VSTA that broke after 1 year (I still don't think Asrock is bad)

    My current Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2H and after 2 years of daily use it's still strong :)

    I like Gigabyte too ;)

    That's pretty funny coming from such a huge fan of eVGA like you. Since 2004, I've built over 3 dozen PCs for people with Gigabyte mobos, only one had problems - that an RMA took care of.

    I built 3 PCs with eVGA mobos. All had problems, and the one time I owned an eVGA video card left a sour taste in my mouth. I think they're the most overrated company out there. I think they learned how to make PCBs from Sapphire.

    You missed the part where only 1 out of the 7 boards of theirs I have bought actually worked, as well as the RMA issues, they are the worst you can get in my experience. Also why do you say I am an EVGA fan ?
