  1. knowing Acer (they own emachines and gateway) they will use an AM2 mATX board (ATX boards are too expensive and most mass PC sellers won't build with them unless needed) made by Biostar or ECS

    I'm thinking of doing the same thing on my ET1161-07. It is an mATX; I found the specs here:

    My question is, if I buy a used motherboard...what else will I need to replace it? I'm pretty sure I can do it, but then what about drivers, etc... I've seen the new ones from newegg, for example, that come with installation disks.
