Hi, I’m Allen and welcome to Expert Village.
Today, I’m going to show you how to build your very own Personal Computer. Right now,
I’m going to discuss a little bit further into the components and break it down a little
bit further telling you what components you really need to get the system up and running,
but really to discuss the component itself. First, let me talk about the motherboard.
Obviously, the motherboard is the mother of the ship. It runs everything. It’s the main
processing central unit that brings everything together. You really need this to make the
system work. Now, motherboards come in all shapes and sizes, styles, different speeds,
memory and different connectors on it. There’s a lot of different brands out there. Some
brands, as always are better than others. I will tell you from personal experience,
I’ve had a lot of luck with Abit brand, Gigabyte brand, ECS was really good. One of the lower
cost brands is BioStar and I really haven’t had problems with them. Azeus is another really,
really good brand. You’ll see one’s like that, and you’ll also see companies like ChainTech,
Shuttle, MSI and these are a bit lower quality brand so if you’re really looking to save
money, or just trying to build a cheap system to do whatever, word processing, just surf
the internet, that’s probably the way to go. Just do some research behind it, but if you’re
really looking to do some high end stuff, really look into it. Look at what the upgrade
features are, what the features on the board are. I just picked up, after doing about two
months of doing research behind the Intel Quad Core and I actually picked up this, which
is the 965P-DS3 from Gigabyte. It runs the quad core, but it has such awesome specs on
it and you have a lot of leeway with over clocking things and it’s a really good board.
The board itself was about $150 or so when I picked it up. It depends on what you want
to spend, what you want to do. Definitely do some research, see what other people say.
The best thing out there really is to read customer reviews. Those reviews will hopefully
make up your mind at what you want to buy and what you want to spend. That’s pretty
much it for a motherboard right there.

    You know, I've noticed when people say A-Zoos, they're idiots who should be avoided. Its an easy way to tell.

    YOU, ALAN, ARE AN IDIOT. YOU PICKED UP A 965 TO RUN QUAD CORE? IN 2008? IDIOT. Ever heard of P35? P45? X38? X48? You know– chipsets that were CURRENT WHEN YOU BUILT YOUR COMPUTER, MORON! YOU KNOW? CUZZ MOTHERBOARDS CAN AFFECT YOUR SYSTEM SPEED BY UP TO 30% you FUCK

    the motherboard seems like one of the harder things to understand about computers.

    I'm not sure a bartender, who clearly demonstrates his lack of understanding of IC's and VLSI's, should be educating the community on personal computer assembly. Granted it's not very difficult, but its clear there's a lack of actual understanding here.

    The motherboard connects all the parts together and acts as a circuit highway. that's how I describe it.
