There are many different motherboard manufacturers but not all of these have impressive products. Based on different reviews by experts and users, the two most trusted motherboard brands are ASUS and GIGABYTE. These two companies have been making motherboard for years now and have only been providing good and reliable products.
Based on performance, functionality, user friendliness, and warranty, these two brands are up there. Most customer reviews state that they’ve never had a problem with the brand and it’s reasonably priced. Gigabyte includes a lot of connectors for every kind of monitor, it is still pretty easy to use and it is almost always more affordable than any of its competitors. Asus leads with the user friendly parts and customer service care. It is the safest choice when you find yourself shopping for a motherboard.
Other notable motherboard manufacturers are MSI (Micro star international) and Diamond Flower Inc, both are Chinese based brands.

5. Disconnect all the wires. Of course, before doing anything else and before you start unscrewing all the parts, make sure that everything is disconnected. The least you would want is for the other parts to be damaged. The power supply is very easy to spot since the connecters are big, however, the small connectors such as the power switch or the USB connectors on the front of the CPU are barely seen.
6. Remove all the hardware. Aside from the connectors, you must also remove the hardware installed on your old motherboard. There are cases wherein hardware devices obstruct the motherboard when you try to take it out. Do not force it. Removing everything inside your CPU prior to installation is a much better idea.

Motherboard layout design
When buying a motherboard, it is imperative to consider the layout of the motherboard you will be buying. This includes the positioning of mounting holes , expansion slots, ports etc. Of course your cpu case should be compatible with the motherboard, otherwise it would not fit.
The number of RAM Slots should be able to accommodate your needs.
Be advised that in choosing your motherboard, it must be compatible with the PROCESSOR FAMILY you want to patronize. There are boards that are created exclusively selected CPU models only. Try asking the retailer/seller of the items for more information, or search for it online.

The latest motherboards today usually offer both IDE and SATA connectors. This is because of the rise of the new SATA drives (Serial ATA). Choosing a motherboard that supports SATA drives is a wise option.
Most motherboards have at least two to four PCI slots for expansion and flexibility.
Standard PCI slots designated on the board for additional enhancements like sound cards, video cards, Ethernet cards.
Most mainstream boards also have the faster version of PCI slots, the PCI Express (PCIe).
In buying a motherboard, it is best to plan what enhancements you will apply on your machine.
Know your needs, your preferences and your budget. Seek for more options and opinions from experts to see what motherboard is right for you.

What is a Pc/desktop without a motherboard???? Nothing actually for it is the part of a computer system that allows you to make good use of the computing power locked in today’s multi-core computer processors. The motherboard is the binder that allows your processor(computer’s brain), ram(memory), Video processor and the many other peripherals you use to communicate with each other allowing them to function into one heck of a collection of technology that is the desktop of today.
As with most stuff you can buy, the cheaper the less reliable they are so the best brands do come at a price. It also tends to change frequently as technology evolves, older tech goes obsolete such as the IDE interface as it has slowly been taken over by the much faster SATA interface.

The design of the motherboard is something that you should consider much. Aside from the specs and speed of it, the form and design of it are also important since this will determine the placement of your hardware in your computer. If you wish to have USB ports in front of your PC, you must buy motherboards that have USB slots in front. With this, comes the issue of the CPUâ€™s casing. If there are no holes in front, you obviously have to replace it. All the hardware slots (slots for the LAN, phone port, USB ports, plug, monitor etc.) are also important since you will be connecting some of your external devices on it. The least thing that you want to happen is for your slots to be covered.

The motherboard or the mainboard is the core of the computer set, each part of the computer relies on the mainboard to work its part correctly. One of the main functions of motherboard is to maintain connection between each computer parts and make sure that components are working well between them.
Lots of signs of motherboard crashes are that the PC won’t boot up. It does not reach the POST test. It shows erratic behavior. Or something else of any combinations of components is not working. Because all parts in computer is associated to the motherboard a particular parts may or may not work properly if the motherboard is damaged

Compared to the other SLI models, the 650i SLI is surely missing out on a lot of things, though none of them seem to have a real impact on performance.
Boards equipped with the nForce 650i SLI does not have the 1333MHz FSB support (at least for now), EPP memory support, 28 PCI Express bus lanes, two SATA ports, two USB ports and one Gigabit LAN port.
Most users might not pay enough attention to the missing ports, and at least some will ignore the lack of official 1333MHz FSB and EPP memory support, but the 28 missing PCI Express bus lanes really does matter.
