    well, it's more of a desktop in a server tower case. the mobo crapped out. i want to replace it though my problem is: i have no freakin clue what my CPU is... yeah i know it's a 2 gig but i can't remember for the life of me if it's a northbridge, westwood, etc... and all those fancy names. i really can't remember. is there anyway i can look at the chip and find out? all i need is a mobo and memory since i already have a decent vid card (ati 8500 DV, i said decent, not great), 2 120 gig hd and i guess i'll get a gig of ram. i figure i'll use it as a storage server than anything else right now.

    so how can i tell by looking at my intel chip? it's about 3 or 4 years old. Thanks!
