Mobo Upgrade? - DavidDacovney - 03-07-2015

Hey folks!

Long time lurker/reader here and I have a question...

I've upgraded my PC with an SSD, Radeon 7850 (twin frozr), and an i5 3350p. However, I haven't upgraded the mobo - an ASRock H61M U3S3.

I'm looking to hand this build over to a family member, would you recommend upgrading the mobo to a newer model for additional reliability / features?


Thanks,

-MC

It's still a fine motherboard. It has USB 3.0 and SATA III support so the SSD isn't bottlenecked.

The CPU, video card and motherboard are well balanced, I don't see any point in upgrading the motherboard unless it doesn't offer something that your family member would want.
