The PCCHIPS M848ALU (V2.1) uses the Intel Not sure CPU socket. Any compatible Intel CPU will have the same socket entry.
Conforming to the ATX standard, the PCCHIPS M848ALU (V2.1) should fit into the majority of cases. ATX is the most common form factor, and as such has a high degree of compatibility with other components while providing a decent number of slots to widen your expansion options.
The PCCHIPS M848ALU (V2.1) does not support onboard graphics. Any system build that uses this motherboard therefore requires a separate graphics card, or a processor that has a GPU on the same die, such as AMD APU processors. There are 0 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. The PCCHIPS M848ALU (V2.1) does not support multiple graphics cards via Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire.
The PCCHIPS M848ALU (V2.1) has 5 USB 2.0 slots but no USB 3.0 slots. While USB 3.0 slots are so far by no means necessary, and with a plethora of USB 2.0 peripherals to choose from, the USB functionality on this motherboard should be fine. If planning on building a new system, a motherboard with USB 3.0 is likely to have a longer life cycle, however.
