The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU is a killer GPU for the price, unlocking 1440p and some 4K gaming. It may not be the absolute best graphics card from AMD, but it’s up there with the best of the bunch. If you want to build a very capable gaming rig, this is an ideal place to start.
Choosing the best motherboard
You may have noticed most of our recommended motherboards are for AMD processors and that’s because we’d recommend the Ryzen 5000 series of processors at launch for AMD’s GPUs. The company has gone into some detail about how its GPUs work better with its own CPUs, thanks to better (and faster) memory access.
If you’re looking for the best motherboard for an AMD build with the Radeon RX 6800 XT, you’re going to want to give the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E a looking as it’s an excellent choice for most consumers, even providing room for stable overclocking.
For Intel fans, your choice is the ASUS ROG Strix Z490-E Gaming, which comes rocking pretty much everything you need to build a capable Intel gaming rig. Just try not to worry too much about the lack of any PCIe 4.0. It’s an excellent motherboard with support for 10th Gen processors.
