I built my brothers computer like a year or two ago and his motherboard just died so I need to get him a new one. I can't remember what processor I put in it or what socket it is.
This is the motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-034-_-Product
It needs to have SATA, PCIe x16 slot, and PCI slot. I can figure all that out, but I don't want to order a replacement motherboard and not have the processor not fit or work.
So how can I choose a mobo for him? Is it like, as long as the mobo supports AM2 socket, then it will work, or is it...as long as the mobo supports Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon 64 / Sempron it will work. or do I HAVE to find out the processor?
