Installing a new motherboard can be one of the more difficult aspects of a home built or upgraded PC. It involves getting right into the basics of your computer and replacing what is the core component. The motherboard is the heart and soul of any system, and upgrading to a newer model is a process that should be taken seriously and performed with the utmost of care. With that in mind, the following is a step-by-step guide to help make your next home upgrade go a lot smoother.
[...] With all of the motherboard enhancements we have seen over the past year or so, upgrading to a newer model can be an inexpensive hedge against the cost of a totally new PC. It also has the added benefit of allowing the home user to get a better idea of how a computer functions, as well as opening the door to easier upgrades in the future. We hope that this Motherboard Installation Guide has shed some light on one of the murkier aspect of computer upgrades, and that the steps shown will convince some newer users that it is really not as difficult as it seems.
