Choosing a motherboard

The motherboard  is in my opinion, the most important part in building a computer. It defines what size case, what CPU, and what RAM or Graphics card you can use. When choosing a motherboard make sure to choose on that is compatible with the CPU that you want to use. Newer motherboards use DDR3 RAM. I would recommend going with one of these because DDR3 prices are dropping. Once you have a motherboard picked out, you can move onto the other parts.

  2. Of course, it's the backbone. Just make sure it's nice and comfy in your case and you're fine. Most mobos are of an exceptional quality nowadays.
