  1. Hi guys...

    urm urm since discovering i needed a new mobo to fit with my new graphics card which is a pcie.... i am pretty much a complete novice at mobos.

    i don't know how to find out what socket number i need to buy and stuff so any help on how i can find out the information i need to know before i purchase one would be helpful..... and it never hurts to help me find a good one for a good price :p

    also i need this : XFX GeForce 7300 GS PCI-e to fit in it

    First u need to know what type of pcie your card is... then go buy a mobo with that type of pcie slot.... thats it

    Which CPU do you have?
    What's your current motherboard?

    Intel is going to be socket 478, AMD uses 939 or 754.

    New Intel boards are Socket T 775. AMD is still using 939 until June or July and then they switch to AM2. Which is 940.
