Hello everyone!
I am looking to upgrade my motherboard and add Ram as well as change my processor.I recently bought this processor : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113331

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 :
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131885
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138366
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131883

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 : http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/en/ho/WF06b/12454-12454-3329740-64546-64546-5146449-5165561.html?dnr=1

Thanks!
