Complete newbie to the whole component matching thing.
I have an older hp pavilion s3000 with windows vista laying around. I also have a brand new ASUS P5G41T-M LX i picked up at a store for a super low price. The motherboard on the s3000 has the no video problem thats common with those boards. I also have a core 2 duo e8400 and a 400w power supply. My question is, aside from the ASUS mobo not fitting in the case correctly (that wont be a problem, it isnt going back in the slimline case) will this board work with the hard drive, ram, and other components? i know the board has the 775 socket so the processor will fit. Are there any problems i might run into?
If your stuck finding out about motherboard compatibility, try googling the make and model and it should come up in the first link if its not a motherboard from a prebuilt (already made) computer, if it is from a prebuilt then search the computers model and make.
