Default used pc build

as you see in my sig, my PC blew up in a thunderstorm, so i have to rebuild that PC with parts that i have, and $100 spending money.


all i need is a new power supply, maybe a new mobo.

what recommendations do you have for a power supply and mobo?

my old power supply was 350W, and my mobo was bargain basement (4 USB, 2 PCI, 1 AGP)

well, uh... as many posts as you've had in the past, I'd assume you'd know to post what kind of parts you'll be reusing. Like processor, RAM, video card, ect... Including the case.

Newegg.com doesnt offer shipping to Canada. A Mobo and a PSU would put you right at $100, adding a cheapo case, on top of the shipping probably won't happen. They Usually charge anywhere from $10 to $20 to ship a case. TigerDirect Canada, though they ships to Canada, their shipping is even more expensive than Newegg.

I know, but what is everything? I can't help you pick out a motherboard, till I know what CPU, and RAM your going to put in the board. Sorry if I sound a little rude. Thats not my intention.
