I was reading on tutorials on how to build a computer which i've got down pretty good except in the sections on installing the motherboard they say set the jumpers on the mother board and srew into the case. My question is what do they mean by jumpers and how do u set them up.

Thx in advance

If you are going to use a brand new motherboard you really dont have to worry about jumpers anymore. I don't think i can name one computer i've built in the last 2 years that has any jumpers at all. I built gigabyte, MSI, Intel, Foxconn, abit, FIC, and some others makers boards. None have had jumpers. Some of the tutorials on the internet are a few years old so they might have had jumpers on the Mb's when they were making the tut's.

I just built a intel D101GGCL MB computer and it was a little strange that to get into the BIOS you had to change a jumper on the motherboard, then change the jumper back to boot the computer. I had to do this because the customer wanted a Audigy sound card over the on-board sound. Its the first time i've seen that.

Good question I am asking myself the same thing. From what I've read elsewhere the new Conroe chips will only be compatible with 965 and 975X socket 775 motherboards, older 975 boards are not compatible. At the moment I you browse newegg there are some compatible boards but I have no idea about anything new coming so someone else must answer that...

These are the new generation of motherboards.....

There would be more in these chipsets when or after the processor is availiable before any new releases....
