so heres the deal. my computer failed, and I don't know what's wrong with it. Tried a different (newer even) PSU with it and it only led to different problems (USB didn't power up). It was at least 5 years old - athlon xp 2600+. Getting it back to life is secondary right now. I have parts for 2 other broken computers (each with odd problems too, but I have 2 or 3 not-so-old PSUs, shitloads of DDR2 ram, and a PCIe graphics card) - one is an athlon 64 and the other is a core 2 duo - E2160 or something like that. 1.8Ghz, but my brother says I can overclock it to 3Ghz. Nevertheless, even at 1.8 or a pile less than 3Ghz I'll be happy because it's free. It's the intel computer I want to revive (if you could call it that). So, I want a good motherboard, so I can upgrade these not-so-great parts (quad core and ddr3) down the line. Also on-board Intel video would suit me down to the ground (don't play games, don't want to buy a video card). I hope there's good boards out there. I WILL spend over 100 euro if it's something that I will be able to upgrade later and will keep me going for now. Right now I have nothing. Any tips, et cetera, appreciated. ps troubleshooting hardware is a cunt!
