The motherboard is one of the most important components in a good quality trading computer and it can make or break a system. You can use the best processor, memory, and graphics card, but without a quality motherboard as the foundation of your system your trading computer's performance will be limited. The "chipset" used to build the motherboard is very important as it is the core of a good motherboard. To get the full power of the processor, graphics card, and memory you should get a motherboard with the best chipset available that matches your processor. Lower-end chipsets for Intel processors will have little or no turbo mode functionality with the lower-end chipsets. The turbo mode is very important when the market is moving fast during peak trading volume periods of the day. The best chipsets for maximum trading computer performance are the Intel Z97, Z170, and X99. All other Intel chipsets will have reduced turbo speed performance.
