As some of you know, my pc recently caught on fire.
I've managed to salvage and test: 2x1gb DDR1, both my hard drives, my optical drives, and all my pci/agp cards.
I can't test my cpu to see if it works or not because i don't have another one.
What happened was part of the motherboard seems to have just caught on fire. Now if this was power related it could have fried my cpu, possibly ( I don't really know, but I think its possible).
I also bought a new case because that one is a piece of crap.
I have $110. I can just buy a 478 and hope my cpu is good or I can save a little more and just upgrade my cpu/mb to a lower end X2 or a Pentium D.
Problem is that I don't think any of the X2 motherboards accept DDR1 ram, which means I have to also buy a new ram, which adds to the amount I have to save.
I've seen some Pentium D motherboard/cpu combos for around $100 that take DDR1, does anyone know how they compare to like a 3600 Brisbane?
Or any other suggestions?
