Motherboard died, need to upgrade
After reinstalling Windows media player, I had to restart the system. However the thing wouldn't boot afterwards. I tried a few times, and it still didn't boot. Even after resetting the BIOS, and reseating everything.
I am 99% sure it is the motherboard, because it has been a little buggy ever since I overclocked my Sempron to 2240MHZ (280HTT)
and the board only cost AU$45 when I got it.
So now I am without my own working system. What I need is a new motherboard and CPU.
I have about AU$450, and the following (working) parts:
2x512MB OCZ Premier (DDR1)
Asus K8V-MX (socket 754, AGP)
7950 GT (PCI-E)
Cooler Master 450W PSU (has worked fine so far)
SB X-Fi Xtrememusic
Chimei 22" LCD
So how should I go about doing this?
I was thinking about getting a socket 939 motherboard and CPU, so I can keep my DDR1 (I want at least a 4200+)
However socket 939 CPU's are kinda hard to get nowadays
