I build my own computers with the OS purchased separately. I dont like prebuilt systems.
I need the board only for a couple of reasons. I have been having a problem with adding new video cards. I went through three new ones to try to solve my problem. No matter what card I use, my computer ends up restarting after even moderate use. Im not a gamer. I tried just about everything including installing my OS from scratch. There is much more to it but I would be typing paragraphs.
The other reason is I cant afford to buy all new cards. It is the Christmas season. I just want to get it running without restarting.
My board is having problems with new video cards. Its not integrated. Yes the cpu is what you put in your message. I tried three different cards but have the same problem. I think the first card did something to it. I have been dealing with this problem for a month. I have been in several forums to solve the problem but no one seems to have a solution. Just to add to it. I have two computers with the same hardware (clones) except for the psu. I tried to install it in my second computer and it has the exact same problem now. The only thing I havent done to the computer is to change some of the bios settings. Im not very savy at voltage settings and such. Im at the end of my rope with this one.
