How to Buy a Motherboard

In this video James, computer hardware training coordinator for Interconnection, shows you how to buy a motherboard.

Things you want to keep in mind when buying a motherboard:

Will the motherboard support 64-bit processors?
What are you going to use it for?

If you want all the toys like audio and having your iPod plugged in, you want to get a motherboard with few more slots. PCI slots or PCI Express slots will allow you to add more features, like a T.V. capture card, a high-performance sound card, or a video surveillance card.

What type of hard drive are you going to be using, an old IDE drive or an SATA drive?
How much RAM can the motherboard handle? All motherboards have a limit on the maximum amount of RAM that you can install.

check out motherboard reviews online.

All motherboards come with a manual and a backing Plate. You'll need a case that can handle the motherboard and the backing plate. Most motherboards use the ATX form factor.

Make sure the connector for the power supply fits your power supply and any existing cards you have.
