Personal computers have now become an integral part of everyone’s life. When we talk about Personal computers it literally plunges into a pool of its versions, laptop, desktop and the newbie net book. A very most important component of these is the framework of the computer, the Motherboard. Motherboards and buses were traditionally a very large plate fabricated with circuits and slot for processor, if processor is the brain motherboard would be everything else in the human body. Motherboards are fabricated with busses. The complex bus architecture of buses can be divided into two large groups parallel and serial. There are improvisation in these buses in recent years which lead to implementation of serial using parallel bus and rise of universal bus which virtually connects everything on the motherboard to processor and every other location on the motherboard.
The process of picking up a motherboard is critical criteria. It determines how the computer is going to perform. The choice depends on the purpose of computing. If I’m just high school kid, I don’t need a supercomputer to run my word processing applications. I just need an average pc. The mistake of making a wrong in motherboard purchase will never happen when you take into consideration the following factors, Front side speed(Intel), hyper transport(AMD) these have values in MHz, although recent motherboards have reached GHz range. Higher the value faster your system will be. The Next thing is the interface controller, if your processor manufacturer has his own set of motherboards then try to pick an OEM motherboard rather going for chipsets which has reduced performance or overworked chip which would lead to early hardware failure. Look out for these parameters you’ll never go wrong when you pick up a motherboard by yourself.
