    What is a good motherboard upgrade for a Pegatron 2ac2? I have a hp pavilion p7-1180t desktop computer.
    Thanks

    Do you intend to build a new system ie new case, mb, cpu, ram, etc?

    If not, you have a number of issues;
    1 Big box systems ie dell, hp, whatever are proprietary. A standard mb may or may not fit a hp case. In addition, the case connectors seldom fit a standard atx type mb without at least some engineering.
    2 Unless you are running linux or other free os, you will need a new copy of windows. The oem version of windows that comes with a big box system lives and dies with the original hardware ie mb. You change the board and you need a new windows lic.
