Typically, motherboards come in three sizes: AMD GIGABYTE X399 AORUS and Mini-ATX motherboards. ATX motherboards offer the highest number of RAM slots. If you’re looking for a budget build, you can use a smaller micro or mini board chassis, but you’ll have to settle for fewer PCIe slots, RAM banks, and other connectors.
The majority of mainstream boards now have four RAM slots, though Mini-ITX models often only have two and high-end boards frequently have eight. Of course, the number of slots limits the amount of RAM you can install.
Check the I/O area on a motherboard for external connection options you need. You may need more USB 3 ports, others may want more. The most common ports are USB 3, USB 2, Audio, USB Type C, USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2, HDMI, PS/2 and Thunderbolt 3. Ports one would most likely want are USB 2 and USB 3 Gen1 ports, since the first one is perfect for keyboard, mouse, and many other devices, and the later one works with most peripherals. USB 3.1 Gen2 and USB Type-C ports will soon be handy, though most peripherals still don’t support this standard.
