I am really stressed out...I can't find any information that I need and I have been looking for days! Can you please help?

I have to search the web for details on two motherboards: one must be a Pentium 3 motherboard; the other must be a Pentium 4 motherboard.

For each motherboard, I have to list the details of its typical components:

o Form factor: ATX, mini ATX, NLX
o CPU: range of supported CPUs, operating voltage, bus speed and socket type
o RAM: capacity, speed and type
o HDD: capacity and connector type
o Extension slots: type and number of slots
o Peripheral connectors: type and number (parallel, USB 1 or 2, serial etc)

Then I have to choose two of the components from your list and describe in more detail the differences between them.

I must show the date when this information was current and the URL of website.

I have looked at a couple of websites, and yeah, they have some of the things I need, but lots are not there! Am I not looking carefully or fully understanding it?

Here are the websites:

P3 Motherboard - http://www.supermicr...P3/HE/S2QR6.cfm
P4 Motherboard - http://www.supermicr...E7210/P4SCi.cfm

I hope you can help!

By the way, this is not an assignment; it's just a web research that needs to be done really soon.

This sounds remarkably like a homework project.
All of the details that you need for this assignment will be on the websites of the motherboard manufacturers. There are plenty of them about.
