Well i hae been lookin' at some motherboards for the desktop i'm tryin' to build for me and my parents. My friend said should use a 2.5 GHz motherboard, but when i look at all the motherboards online, i see other stuff like sockets..... I'm so confused about that stuff.
Can you guys suggeston a motherboard.
The main use for the desktop is for PhotoShop CS2, dad's Bernina Embrodiary software, and music, and burnin' DVD's.
Any suggestion would help, links to the specific motherboard you are suggestin' would help even more.
Thanks.

The socket with its number of pins is related to the CPU, example...Athlon's 64 3200+ CPU is a socket 939 which operates at 2.0GHz.

How much do want to spend on this computer, and what parts do you have, monitor, keyboard, mouse,etc?

There are two things that you need to take into consideration when planning to build a computer, what are you going to use it for, and what kind of budget do you have?

If you can answer that people here can make suggestions to help you.
