GIGABYTE Z97X Gaming G1 Black has been selected as the “Motherboard of the Year” by PC PowerPlay Magazine in Australia. PC PowerPlay Magazine is the biggest gaming magazine in Australia and clearly rates our top spec Z97 Gaming board as the best of the best. Make sure you get one on your next upgrade! The magazine doesn’t have a definite pick on the CPU side so we’ll take the liberty of suggesting for a good match. We’d recommend the Intel 4690K or 4790K for high end or as a pure gamer even the Intel Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition is a killer performer in 3D!
