I have the basic knowledge of what I socket is. I still have some questions about it and I've read about it on wikipedia. One my questions is does the number that follows the socket, such as socket xxx, mean anything? or is it just there to be a name? Additionally, let's supposed the Nehalems were out. If I were to buy a motherboard to support them, would I still be able to use processors that required older sockets?
Thanks. If anymore questions pop up you can expect me here asking them =]
