    Hello

    I am trying to swap my old gigabyte K8N Ultra-9 board and AMD dual core cpu 4200 with a new Kontron board.

    New board is Kontron KTQ67 embedded motherboard with a I3 cpu on it ,this board was given to me by a friend of mine ,I looked this board up and looks to be a top of the line board.

    My question is

    Will it work as a home pc ? I have 2 optical sata drives ,3 500gb sata hard drives,a brand new Corsair 750w power supply , extra case fans, and cpu fans and my old case .This board already has a onboard graphic and I would like to use it until I figure out if I want a purchase a PCIE card ,I do not play any games.

    I do not have the RAM yet and I am looking for a good deal
