Yes to both questions, but I suggest getting an H77 or B75 motherboard just to be safe if you're getting an Ivy Bridge CPU. Some H61 and other first-gen LGA 1155 boards do not ship with a Ivy Bridge-supporting BIOS and need it updated, but you need a Sandy-bridge CPU tp perform that update.

What about this motherboard? Its H61 but it says "Microsoft Windows 8 Certified" and "Intel 22nm Multi-Core CPU support". Also it doesnt mention front panel connectors, is that just assumed it comes with the MB? Do not all MB's come with front panel USB connectors?

Here is the MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

EDIT: I just went on their website, and they had a list of validated CPU's, the Celeron G1610 being on there. Thanks for your help, I would have bought the wrong motherboard :o

I think that pretty much all modern motherboards come with USB 2.0/1.x headers for front and/or top panel connectors, but some don't have USB 3.0 headers.

Also, I'm not quite sure of what most of your last post is saying. If you have any current problems and/or questions, would you mind clarifying it a little?

That was my question, on whether or not all motherboards came with the USB 2.0 front panel connection cords

OK. I just looked at the pictures in that Newegg link and I can say that I don't see anything that looks like USB 2.0 headers. I think that that might be one of the only boards that lack them :( 

Technically, you could get them through an expansion card, but at that pint you might as well just get a different board instead of adding the complication of an add-on card.

That's fine, I misunderstood him and he does NOT need to dual screen. So I am going with the original APU build using a A6-5400K paired with some 1866 memory. Can you tell me if this board has them?
