I'm not completely new to the world of assembling a computer (have built one and changed out almost every part in others), but I have two questions.
1. What info is needed to match a motherboard to a CPU? Seems like the socket type is basically the pin pattern, but that doesn't seem like enough to me (for a match). Is it socket type and chipset? Or what?
2. I have 3 computers that I would like to get some more RAM for. Unfortunately, I can't look at a RAM chip (module?) and know what kind it is. Does anyone know of a site that would have pictures (or something!) so I can see the difference?
(For anyone who wants to know how I built a system without knowing how to match the CPU to the MB, I bought them bundled because I didn't know)
Oh, all right, one more question: Any recommendations for a good site with low prices?
