Hi there! So I'm trying to build myself an Ubuntu/Linux computer. I'm using an older pre-built computer and replacing/expanding some of the components. The current motherboard is dead and I need to replace it obviously. I want to know if I need to find the exact same motherboard or if I can find a newer one and install that. The current board is a Gigabyte GA-8KNXP with a Pentium 4 processor. I am willing to replace the processor and everything else in the computer if it means I can use a newer processor. Any info would be great! Thanks all!

P.S. this is my first (re)build of a computer so any tips to would be great! Thanks again!

Move the crowd,
Audiofader

Moved. Did you read the Sticky Post at the head of the forum regarding what can be posted in "Anything Goes"? Read the forum descriptions before posting.
