This video will walk you through the basic factors you’ll need to consider when choosing a motherboard, including what processor family you want to go with and whether you plan on overclocking. If you’re looking to build your own PC, the motherboard you choose will serve as the foundation. Your motherboard determines many of the other components that you’ll be able to use in your system, while other components, like your processor, determine which motherboards you’ll have to choose from.
