My first build I used an Asus MOBO. They come in different socket sizes for different CPU's. They also have other options. Check out their website, a lot of info on chipsets, SLI's and memory recommendations. There are other manufacturers but this is the brand I used.
I want a CPU that supports fast pace gaming but not sure what motherboard to get. I bought a CISNET (made by ZT Group) and I got it a couple of months ago. The question is which is a good motherboard that supports SLI and supports good processors. I would like to get an AMD 64 X2 3800+. I also have another question, does a single motherboard support all types of processors, or does each motherboard support specific types of processors? and also are there motherboards that have alot of pci slots like at least 7( 2 x16 pci slots out of the 7). I would like to further expand with such items as a tv tuner card and a sound card. I would really like to take the processor I have in my CISNET and just move it on to another motherboard, but considering it probably is a cheap Pentium 4, I don't know if I can.
