The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.

Memory
Supported memory types *
Types of memory which can be used with the product.
DDR3-SDRAM
Memory slots type *
A memory slot, also known as a memory socket or RAM slot, is what allows computer memory (RAM) to be inserted into the computer. Depending on the motherboard, there will usually be 2 to 4 memory slots (sometimes more on high-end motherboards). The most common types of RAM are SDRAM and DDR for desktop computers and SODIMM for laptop computers, each having various types and speeds.
DIMM
Supported memory clock speeds *
Memory clock speed is the time it takes for a computer to complete basic operations. It refers to the computer's processing speed and is measured in hertz. It is however not such a reliable measure of a computer's speed as it doesn't take into account other factors like RAM and cache size.

Parallel processing technology support
Parallel processing technology is the simultaneous use of more than one CPU or processor core to execute a program or multiple computational threads. Ideally, parallel processing makes programs run faster because there are more engines (CPUs or Cores) running it. In practice, it is often difficult to divide a program in such a way that separate CPUs or cores can execute different portions without interfering with each other. Most computers have just one CPU, but some models have several, and multi-core processor chips are becoming the norm. There are even computers with thousands of CPUs.

BIOS
BIOS type *
The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) initializes and tests system hardware components, and loads a bootloader or an operating system from a mass memory device. The BIOS additionally provides abstraction layer for the hardware, i.e. a consistent way for application programs and operating systems to interact with the keyboard, display, and other input/output devices. There are several types of BIOS, including the motherboard ROM BIOS, video BIOS, drive controller BIOS, network adapter BIOS, and SCSI adapter BIOS.
