A new motherboard might have a different chipset. The chipset is part of the motherboard specifications.

You need to ensure that the chipset on any new motherboard is compatible with your processor.

You need to know is your processor pinless or it have pin. Then you can change it.

Yes.


You should be able to easily find out what chipset is on any motherboard.

My motherboard has an Intel H67 chipset. Others are P67, H61, and so forth.

The chipset is part of the motherboard's specifications and can't (easily) be changed without changing the entire motherboard.

Here is the Intel board at Intel:

Intel® Desktop Board DG41TY - Overview

I can't find that exact model number at Asus. Here is as close as I can find:

ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P5G41T-M LX

Both are good brands and should differ only in features. You need to go through the specifications and manuals and look for the features you need.
