    Question Motherboards

    If anyone can help Id greatly appreciate it. I am trying to find information on motherboards ie...the types of speed they run at, what speeds will run what types of hardware for computers. All I keep finding about motherboards is the product itself but no explanations as to what the motherboard can run on it. I want to build my own computer and have read a few of the posts on this subject. IM just not getting the type of info im looking for.. IM lm looking to build a fast machine that will have great programming capabilities as well as play games with high end graphics and run dvd's. Thanks for the help.

    Start by checking out www.motherboards.com There, you can find different motherboard vendors and specs on many of their mainstream boards. If you're planning on building your own computer, I would suggest deciding what type/speed of processor you want first. From there, decide what sort of boards you want for expansion (i.e. video card, NIC, modem, sound card, etc.). Once you know what type of expansion boards you want, you can start seaching different motherboards to find exactly what you're looking for.

    In addition you might want to browse the mainboard guide at Tom's Hardware Guide ....home of some very concise reviews.

    Don't forget to visit www.driverguide.com to see if there are any driver updates for the mobo you want.Don't buy a mobo if the company don't provide updates.
