SG3-120UK

Hi

 

I have a Compaq SG3-120UK

 

I would like to upgrade the mother board so I can add a couple of graphics cards.

 

What is the easiest option?

 

Thanks

NOTICE: This is an inexpensive entry-level uATX motherboard, with NO Graphics card slot !

 

There are a wide variety of uATX (micro ATX) motherboards that could be used.

For Intel processor motherboards, focus on Skylake or Kaby Lake.  

You may find built-in graphics satisfactory with new motherboard.  The processor is the most expensive part !

Spend 90% of your time RESEARCHING.  This includes potential clearance issues, inside the case,

as well as Front I/O connectors and interfaces to gain maximum usage/enjoyment.

 

There are small computer shops that can be used for advice/assistance for the non-technical (STEM) customer.

Example, Asus H270M Plus (Prime series)
