Oh well a lesson learned take it to the hardware store and see what they think most likely you need a new motherboard depending on your CPU. it`d be cheap to replace anyway you can get some nice motherboards for nothing now.

Depends on your specs you can still get some good AGP graphics card motherboards and DDR ram. You can even get AGP, PCI-E and DDR with DDR2 slot motherboards.

pentium 4 then I presume and the 9200 will most likely be an AGP card but also possible its PCI. You can find a cheap mobo to match those parts once you find out which variation of 9200 you have.

depends how much you have to spend it will cost anywhere between $200-400. If you play high end games then 400+ will be the target other wise you could build an ok comp for $200 maybe a little less if you cut down out on everything
