See if the CPU is on the support list for your new board.
Your computer is well, we can't tell. You might have a Dell or micro-case. You must know if it fits.

Yeah

Yeah that's a good point, I should measure to make sure. As for my cpu, already made sure, my current and new motherboard has amd 3+ socket, so does the new cpu I'm buying, and my current one. So I believe that's how I tell if itll fit, could be wrong but I'm pretty confident on it. Buying a new cpu cooler also that fits for amd 3+, so I believe my bases are covered other then size atm. Ty for the help

This seems more like opinion then answering my question, kinda off topic man, but I appreciate the reply.

It's a strong opinion.

This is a discussion board and thus allowed. I've encountered so many machines over the years (been at this since before the PC) and there is safety in numbers. The PCMR builds and parts are so well used that I've learned to use them when I don't want issues. That is, you select a leading edge board, chipset and CPU and could have to wait for a BIOS update or something else.

Most folk don't want that so I share my advice for the no drama choices.

It seems your old mobo is a matx.

Your new mobo is an atx.....bigger.

You have to see if your case will accept an atx mobo.

As for your new mobo and cpu should work.

You will need a liquid cpu cooler for that cpu.

Yeah

Yeah man I'm ordering a cpu cooler with it so no worries, and yeah I need to double check the case. If its not ill just buy a new case, their not that expensive. Thanks for the reply.
