Building your PC is all about deciding what it’s going to be used for. Things like custom-made casings and parts dependent on the operation will play a factor into choosing what you need. Knowing whether you’ll use your PC for simple spreadsheet work, video editing, graphics rendering, or gaming, is crucial for determining the appropriate parts to use in building your PC.
For simple working PCs, basically any motherboard that supports at least the Intel Core 2 Duo line of processors would hold up just fine but there could be some problems when multitasking. For best results, purchase motherboards equipped with CPU slots that support the i series of processors. For graphic artists and gamers, make sure that the motherboard you purchase can support the latest video cards as well.
