The invention of the computer may just be the single most important electronic invention of all time. It’s hard to think of a device that serves more purpose both for communication, business, and recreational activities. A cell phone may be a close second but really a smart phone is essentially a smaller computer.
Sadly, computers aren’t indestructible. Somewhere down the line, they’ll break down and require repairs and or replacement parts. Problems range from simple software errors to debilitating hardware crashes. The most incapacitating defect is the kind that ruins the motherboard, which is why people have to use reliable parts such as the trustworthy Dell DT021 Dell Systemboard for PowerEdge 2950 G2.
In simpler terms, a motherboard (also known as a systemboard or mainboard, among other names) is that which connects other interior components such as a computer’s graphics card and RAM. It can’t be stressed enough that while the parts attached to the motherboard pull their own weight in their respective processes, the motherboard has the most difficult job; it serves not just as the assembly for the components but also relays information from the user’s input to the rest of them and vice-versa.
While it’s considered the central component of any PC, the motherboard has no direct impact on performance; it can only facilitate the processes of the other parts that do affect the PC’s performance. But that doesn’t mean replacing a motherboard is an easy job or inexpensive. In fact replacing a motherboard is a little bit of a hassle. First off, you must find a stable motherboard that can handle high heat but most importantly you must find one that is compatible and the correct size for your computer. The largest setback is they can be expensive parts when purchased brand new.
At CodeMicro we recommend our customers consider buying refurbished or used computers parts in effort to save money. Trusted brands, like Dell, produce high quality products that will function much better than a brand new part from a secondary brand. For example, a great replacement motherboard is the refurbished Dell HC578 Systemboard PowerEdge 2800/2850 V3. This replacement part will have your computer running perfectly and is much more affordable refurbished than if you purchased it brand new from a computer store.
