Do the video cards have different 'sockets' on the motherboard, like the processors do? Because I want to change my motherboard to FM2A58M VGA3+, because I want to upgrade my processor to amd 860k, due to it's better performance. So I'm not sure if this new motherboard will support my GTX 750 StormX 2GB

generally, no, most mobo's have a PCI-e x16 socket on them that is also a popular graphics card connector, not much worries there


always use DD-WRT for all your routers, if you cant get it for them, throw them away

Yeah, one can have different socket sets for CPUs & M/Bs but, vid card slots are fairly consistent. Doesn't feel like GPU.  1st easiest, quickest thing is swap out the RAM; @ least try w/ just 1 and juggle slots, too.  Throw a tester on that P/S.  "oh there's power" but, it's not absolute, they can, actually, be bad.  Eliminate things if it's not something blatantly obvious.

You'll keep in touch, I trust

The motherboard specs...will always indicate what expansion slots are available for use.

 

As long as you have a slot which accommodates a given type of graphics card (PCI-e, in this case), should not be a problem.
