If you're reading this from a high-end PC built with speedy parts sporting fancy features, thank a gamer (heck, you probably are a gamer). The PC gaming community is partially responsible for motivating component makers to push out increasingly powerful and feature-rich products -- you don't need DDR3-3000 support to run Microsoft Office, after all. The downside to this is that manufacturers often place a premium on products designed for gamers. That's why you should check out today's top deal for an MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming Motherboard for $168 with free shipping (normally $188; additional $15 mail-in-rebate). It's marked down in price but loaded up with features like high-frequency RAM support, Killer E2200 game networking, high-end components, and the list goes on. Plus, it looks snazzy to boot.

You have to hand it to ASRock for coming up with some funktastic designs lately, like its Z87 Extreme11/ac with a mind boggling 22 SATA ports and its Bitcoin mining boards with support for half a dozen graphics cards.

A solid example of that is today's top deal for an ASRock Z87 Extreme6 Motherboard for $150 with free shipping (normally $190 - use coupon code: [EMCWWWL32]).
