Since all computers now-a-days could easily be connected to the internet as well as depending on the connection for its speed, I guess some of the features that I would probably look for might be the motherboard's adaptability for upgrades every now and then. I mean, I could always purchase a higher RAM, spacious hard disks, better Graphics Card, other things that I might plug into the PC Card slots and so forth. This also complies with how the computer would be used with the peripheral hard wares that would be determined with the compatibility to it on the mother board. If the mother board can't be constantly get along with the new hardwares getting available, I'd be ending up purchasing a new one if the previous has already been maxed.

I don't know to what degree I could be considered as a tech person but, I guess enough to be picky when it comes to customer satisfaction? Did that make sense? Uhmm, yeah, as the name implies, it is the "Mother" board after all which determines which hardwares it will "adopt" to run along its system. Like, an Octo Core Provessor, even if you purchase the highly advanced RAM, a 8 Gigabyte Graphics Card (It doesn't seem distant in the future, wishful thinking me), or those Spacious Hard Disks that can even store a full length video of your children, (from being born up to getting married ), if it won't get along your mother board, they are all useless.. unless they get adopted by another well adapting mother board. But, that's just being technical with performance in progressive aspects. What matters at the moment would be the computer's performance to suffice the needs that you'd be asking as a user and owner of the computer.

Yeah if there is motherboard that can adopt to our high tech environment, i prefer this. But every now and then, specification are getting higher and higher. In reality, i will choose laptop. It is convenient to bring anywhere with the specification of the following. High memory Great video card Motherboard that can use in lower to higher processor higher gigahertz lot of space in hard disk with internal optical drive there's a socket for external features Waterproof when you drop, will not damage your system XP operating system with office also, license of course

hi kwenge! if i'm buying a computer i would want it to have a very big memory space and a fast CPU. it also has to have a complete motherboard feature such as with video and audio card and everything else that i would need in watching movies or anything and listening to music. then it has to have a dvd-rom and USB ports in front of the CPU. then of course it has to have the main accessories like speakers, keyboards and all that.

I just want to make sure that it has a windows xp operating system and that it has enough speed for me to get done what I need done daily online. I also want to make sure that it is durable and will last me for a long time. I like the flat panel monitor also and the wireless keyboard and mouse.
