A motherboard houses the CPU and the RAM. It has the RAM sockets to expand the RAM memory by just adding the memory modules into the slots. It should contain a PCI express slot into which a graphics card can be installed so that you can get better performance than an integrated card with the chip which degrades the performance. It contains the SATA connection to connect the hard disks and the optical drives. Make sure there are enough PCI slots to expand the functionality of the computer. Also make sure there is support for USB 2.0 along ith firewire ( IEEE 1394) and Gigabit Etherener for a futureproof Motherboard.
