At first i was trying to take the pieces from my acer 2007 pc. but that didn't turn out so well, since i notice the acer desktop processor is alot bigger and is from the year 2005

so what i want to ask you guys, is how can u know if the motherboard is working? i put the power allet box from my acer to this motherboard, and a green light turn on,... and then off.
but it does't have a power button so i dunno how the hell that turn on

And i wanet to ask ... can i use this s my personal pc? for window 7?

If you're looking to build a new gamin rig and put win 7 on it go with the tier 2 suggestion.

If all you want is a simple pc for web use, personal use go with the web pc (which is estimated to run $281), and just run Linux as your operating system. Linux doesn't need a lot of power, and will do most things that windows can (except for running games of course)
