MOTHERBOARD: ASUS Z170M PLUS MOTHERBOARD
It might be a little more expensive than the other boards, but it uses the Z170 chipset, which offers more features and a little extra performance. There’s the ever important M.2 slot for our hard drive, while the range of I/O connections is over the top, and includes USB 3.0 Type C for all your fancy new peripherals. Once again we see the “Asus’ 5X Protection II” set of features, which should ensure the utmost in stability during tense tour. It’s even got excellent gaming audio, but as sound is so important in shooters, we’re going to go with an external headphone amp instead.
