A standard ATX case will work. One thing to consider is the power supply rating. If you intend to have a dual or quad core 64-bit processor, you may want to have the largest power capability you can find. 450 Watts or better.

I don't know what motherboard it is that i have to download the users manual can you please.....please help me


Turn off the PC. Remove the side panel from the case. Get a flashlight and inspect the mother board. You're looking for a number to identify the type of mother board. ASUS mother boards usually place this number just to the left of the memory slots. It's usually 5 or 6 digit long and made up of both letters and numbers. One of my computers with a ASUS mother board is a P5LD2. Once you know this number you can go to http://support.asus.com/ and download updated drivers for *********** board. You may need to identify what type of socket *********** has. If you have a fairly recent Intel microprocessor you probably have a socket 775 mother board. If it's an AMD microprocessor it's probably a SocketAM2 or AM3. You might have to do some searching if these choices don't work. I hope this advice helps you out.

I bought asus m3a78-cm board with via on board audio, with vista no problem occurred but with window 7 the problem started. everytime i on my pc, i will install again the audio driver. the problem repeated...


is this windows 7 32-bit OR 64-bit
you will need 64 drivers for all your hardware if you have migrated from a 32 to 64 bit operating system.
Windows7 64 bit still has some major bugs with certain sound cards.
Asus has updated drivers available at thier website, but they dont have them for all hardware, just the most current.
Hope this helps, post again if i can answer any more questions..
Regards!

Suggest Asus mother board


depending on the type of system you might want.
mid class with 4 to 8 gb ram I would choose M3A78-CM. Its a UATX (small platform) but its really stable.

upper class if you plan to use above 8gb ram. I would choose M4N78 PRO. It gives you a more PCI slots over the M3A78-CM and just as stable.

Will not boot


try different ram....even though the specs say it should work and you have good ram it is possible the motherboard and the ram are not compatible. try some kingston or pny ram...if that doesn't work send mother board back...you may have a bad processor...even though new parts doesn't mean they are good.

I am planning ASUS motherboard.


Based on your previous Motherboard which i assume is the M2N-MX, it seems you are looking for a AMD board.

I would recommend the ASUS M3A78 or M3A78-T, both can be had for less then 130$ and offer support for the new Phenom II 45nm chips as well as the older 65nm and 90nm socket AM2 chips (ala the AMD 64 X2 chips).

I have used 4 or 5 of these boards for new pc builds lately and have been very impressed with them.

Hope this helps.

Motherboard problem


Chances are the CPU fan may be running too slow, dust & dirt build up under & over the fan blades can be a big factor. CPU fan could just be going. Are you over clocking the system. (IF so buy a better heatsink & fan for over clocking the system).
To check if CPU is getting too hot. Enter the bios & go to the title, "Power" page 2-28. Open Hardware monitor & check the CPU temp & mother board temp. (Make sure the case is closed in normal running conditions).
