Hi,

After MS-7209 do you have any more number such as 020, 070, 090 ?

Download Everest

Once installed, open and after it runs a report you can navigate to the Motherboard link and you should find the model number there.

Not without opening the case and having a look or downloading/installing a program.

Sorry.

No worries, post here when you find out and i'll have another look.

NB: Write down all the numbers/letters you can see on the motherboard, just in case, no point having to open it more times than needed.

Whilst your there see if you have any of these ports.....

The MS-7309-020 has 2x SATA Ports
The MS-7309-070 has 2x SATA Ports
The MS-7309-090 has 2x SATA Ports

So im looking towards the board having SATA Ports, im guessing about 2 aswell lol

so regardless of what version I have, which was not shown when i opened it up, I have 2 SATA ports? I had opened my comp up before I saw your last post so I didn't really look for the those purple ports I, so I am not sure if they are there are or not, I will have to give it a look again.

Hi,

The MS-7309-020
The MS-7309-070
The MS-7309-090
---> These may not be the only motherboards available but just ones that i saw whilst quickly searching.

Best bet is to have a look for the ports themselves, quick 2minute task.

Yea its The MS-7309-020 and has 2 SATA ports, thanks for helping me figure that out. Now if i could trouble you with one more quick question.

If I wanted to just upgrade my motherboard and processer what would be the best pick if i wanted to have a motherboard and processer that would support my other hardware:
VisionTek 900202 Radeon HD 3870 512MB 256-bit GDDR4 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire
Crucial 2GB 240-Pin DDR2

No worries. Happy to help!

To be honest with you, thats an area I don't know much about, you'd be better off starting a new thread in System Building & Upgrading, where you'll receive the best advise.
