Hey everyone! I'm looking to build a pc for a friend and need to get a motherboard and a cpu. The problem I am having is I do not know what all the technical jargon means when looking at different products. I have tried to find some recent articles and guides on looking at these and determining what one to purchase but cannot find anything written recently. Does anyone know a place where I can learn all about motherboards and cpu's that has been written in the last few months that is not outdated? Thank you!

A site I use often is Tom's Hardware:

They have a variety of articles written regularly, and about a few months ago (at least, within the last year) they posted guides on the various tech about motherboards and CPUs.

The articles in question will not contain super-specific information as much as educate you on how to determine the features/functionality of CPU and Motherboards, and how to determine what you need.

<<...can learn all about motherboards and cpu's...>>

Impossible aspiration, IMO. Everything changes so quickly and it's not really possible to understand what's current without some understanding of what has gpme befpre...hardware is always a work-in-progress venture in computing.

But...Google and Wikipedia would be good places to get a concise overview of what has been...and what's current, with Wiki providing historical background.

Otherwise...you are just likely to get lost in all the references which take place, IMO.
