Good gaming requires a good video card. You also need good sound but modern motherboards make sound cards unnecessary for gaming.
For video cards, I always choose Asus. Since I’m limiting my research to Asus products it doesn’t take long to find the right one. Keep in mind that the amount of memory your video card has is much more important than the speed of your video card’s memory. As with motherboards, Asus always has many video card models with different features in different price ranges. Asus video cards are reliable, cool and quiet.
