Default New MB help Please

Ok so I need to find a replacement mb for an emachines t1742 and every emachines site that I go to only Gives me parts for upgrades and not for the motherboard. So I was hoping someone can point me in the right direction for a motherboard. I was going to newegg it but I dont want to get the wrong one. Thanks in advanced


Ps. Is there a way to unlock pixel shaders or vortex shaders on a X800 GTO its AGP 8x if it matters. Thanks again everyone!

Get us some detailed information about all the components in your computer. You might as well just go buy a better motherboard off of newegg. Most brand computers have cheap motherboards in them anyway, might as well get something of decent quality.

Yeah, I've had one emachines comp in the past, and bought one less than a year ago. Good luck trying to find a new mobo for that case, because all emachines comps are oem and they're made so you can't upgrade a lot of stuff. You'd be better off just buying a new case and a new motherboard, since the Emachine case probably cant handle a bigger mobo.

if its micro atx i dont see the point in trying to upgrade that, you're really limited with those kind of motherboards. you should probably just build one from scratch, it would be basically the same thing since upgrading a motherboard would require the complete dissassembly/reassembly of a computer.

I am not trying to upgrade it I just wanted to replace it so it will work. It just broke in an lightning storm I think a spike fryed the psu and then the bad psu mested up the motherboard. Its not even mine I am trying to do a favor for my superviser ;-) and fix it for him. I do believe it is micro atx though. If I was to get a new mb what cpu socket does it have? Or even better can some one suggest a replacement off newegg please?
