Here was my issue:

here is my last motherboard help thread that contains everything you need to know about my computer:

So from the above thread we concluded these two were my best options:


If I get the micro ill get a USB wifi receiver instead. If I get the bigger one id get a PCI x1 slot card.

The only thing im worried about now is if my fans prongs will fit on the mobo? A friend of mine said they most likely wont so what is a decent fan I can get for under $40?


I'm afraid ill mess something up as motherboards/cpu chips are the only parts I've never replaced before. If something does happen ill be returning my unopened 770 and getting a ps4 because I really don't want to deal with all of this. Please tell me replacing a mobo is cake lol

Between the two boards, get the large once because it has 4 slots, so you can add more memory.
Installing the board is pretty easy, just read the manual and take your time. The fan prongs if it's all standard, then it will fit.

What should I expect when I turn the computer back on for the first time?

If everything is done correctly, then the computer will turn on and you'll get a image on your monitor.
The system will do its check, but you may have to reinstall your OS, since the OS was installed with the other board.
It may or may not boot with the new board.
