    I have an old motherboard just lying around in my scrap component pile...

    I don't build computers, so I am not familiar with these things. What would happen if i connect everything from another old computer to this motherboard?

    The motherboard is like a year older than the one from the computer [that I'd be taking parts from]. And they're from around 2000.

    totally depends on its socket for cpu

    best bet would be to get the id number off motherboard go to the site see whats is compatability is and cross reference this to what bits and bobs you have about which you are wishing to build

    for example this is mine so can see what compatability i have with other odds and ends

    Ok, what if this motherboard has a cpu in it?

    Can I still connect everything else and it will work? or are they cpu dependent?

    Thanks.
