It wasn't until after I bought it I found out my Motherboard wasn't FM2 Socket, it was FM1. So now I am in the process of finding a good motherboard that is FM2 Socket.

I was looking at a couple on Newegg and was looking for advice. I am confused by what it means when it says Micro ATX and stuff like that. (Still learning more and more about PC )
here's a couple Motherboards I was looking at :

I have a medium sized case with a bit of room left ( my GTX 760 and Power Supply take up most of the room )
This is the pc I have (it was an xmas gift a couple years ago and I've been upgrading it since :

*Edit* Fixed the links. Sorry about that
