I need advice on which motherboard will best enhance or use max pc gaming performance.

I'm currently using the ff:

OS: 32bit Windows 7 (but will probably change to 64bit windows 7) Processor: intel Core 2 Quad Q9400/2.66GHz/45nm/LGA775 socket Motherboard: Asus P5QL PRO Graphics: Galaxy Geforce 9800 GT/1GB/256bit/DDR3 Memory: DDR2 2048MB

nobody else uses this computer but me.... i play the online game "world of tanks" This setup although old was the best i could find in our area.....

I only have to choose between: >ASUS P5G41T-M LX3 >ASROCK G41C-S >GIGABYTE G41M-Combo (rev. 2.0)

Which of these three motherboards would maximize my gaming performance?

Looking 4ward to ur motherly.... oh, "motherboard" advice... :) thanks in advance.... >>> KuyaD

To be honest you really need to think of several components working together to produce a decent gaming experience. These components would be Motherboard, CPU, Graphics card, RAM.

All the motherboards you have chosen are socket 775 which is old tech and you should be looking at socket 1155 from Intel or AM3 from AMD.

Just changing your motherboard is not going to give you any gaming benefit whatsoever.

Not that I'm supporting Chronos the 2nd but you do need the whole package to enjoy your gaming experience. Its not about the motherboard only.
