I'm looking at replacing the MO in my computer. Right now, I have an integrated one. I don't want another one of these. I know that I need an lga775 socket and DDR2-800 standard memory. But I really don't know anything else about MOBO's to know whether or not I'll get the same performance. Does it even matter???


Given the wide variety of prices, it seems to me that I need to consider some things. What are those things to consider?

What kind of computer is it? LGA 775 boards are getting few and hard to find these days, but not impossible. But before I can recomend one I need to know your current setup, such as what kind of CPU you have and what size case, in particular.

I saw a bunch of LGA boards on New Egg.

Follow this link to the specs of my computer. The only thing that is different is that I now have Windows7 ultimate 64bit.

I haven't been able to find out anything specific about the MOBO. No model #, no nothing. I looked everywhere for one on the board. Nothing as far as I can see. All the numbers and letters refer to components.

Thanks,

I appreciate it.

something like this would work A little more on the high end this board will support either DDR2 OR DDR3 (not together) On the higher end with 4 DDR2 800 slots is this mobo that I would recomend. Though, with that old of a computer I would go with one of the first 2 options, the second one in particular because it allows DDR3 support for future expansion.

Getting the motherboard with the DDR2 and DDR3 is gonna be useful because of the future expansion as Patriot mentioned before.

UPDATE

I have decided not to get a new motherboard for the computer I have right now. That being the case, I don't need anymore advise. I would delete this post, but I haven't figured how to do so.

Thanks for everyone's input, it is much appreciated :)
