My grandfather recently passed away and he owned his own computer shop. I helped him on a regular basis and even scored a job as a Computer Technician at my high school due to my knowledge. I really have a passion for computers, and understand many basics and a few technical things from what my grandfather taught me. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of know-how on being able to tell how good a motherboard is, what it includes, how new it is, etc by looking at it. I'm not super familiar with what all the ports look like because I mostly spend my time fixing more general things. I was wondering if maybe you guys could leave some pointers on what I should look for in a usable motherboard. I want to continue my grandfather's business because he had a huge customer base and was really well liked in the community. I really hope G2G can help me continue my education on this stuff. I inherited so many parts and I really want to know what I can build from it to sell and also to use in repair situations. I've left my email under my profile if you want to send things privately.
Thanks a lot.
