You can find all the processors that are compatible with the Intel based boards by looking up the chipset or southbridge info in the search and then go to compatible products on the left when it pulls the chipset info up. I don't know if AMD has something similar. IE, mobo #2 says Intel G31 Chipset, ICH10R, then get the compatibilty that way.

As for memory, every one of your discriptions tells you exactly what kind of memory it takes (again for mobo #2: Motherboard #2: Intel p45 chipset ATX form factor 2xPCI-E(x16)/3xPCI-E (x1)/2xpci/4xddr3 w/sata2 raid,dual lan(gb),1394,usb 2.0 & audio (cpu type:intel - socket 775)

Do you know what is the best website to do this and what steps I would have to take to find this? Thank you..

Ark will only tell you about Intel CPUs and chipsets. Go to the manufacturers sites of the mobo makers and you'll get the RAM info there. Or a memory website like corsair or kingston and put the mobo model in and it will also tell you.
