Question Motherboard Question.

I just recently got into upgrading my Computer, and I want to upgrade my processor. But how do I figure out what kind of motherboard I have so I can figure out which processor to get. Thanks in advance.

You can go to system info in your control panel. Or you can download cpu-z from the internet for free, tells you nearly everything about your system, such as clock speed, etc.
