Duron 1.8 (downgrade from xp 2600 but couldn't afford to replace it - fried due to my own stupidity when I replaced the motherboard)
1 stick 512 2100
Radeon 9600 (has a heatsink and does not plug into the psu)
80 gig drive
Did not have the media reader plugged in, nor a modem, nor the floppy. Just the cpu & fan, case fan, hdd, cd drive, and graphic ard.
Computer was originally a proprietary brand. I put a Radeon 9800se in it to play games. It ran fine for the most part but EQ would lock up in indoor zones for a while. Messing with the drivers seemed to fix it. I didn't know plugging my graphic card into the power supply was a bad idea. One day I went to raid and the screen went black and everything seemed to shut down but the power was still on. I turned it off and back on and it did the same thing when I loaded up EQ. I cracked the side off the case and realized the heatsink popped off northbridge chip. The case was also hot around the cpu area.
After that I couldn't play EQ anymore because it would lock up but the computer ran fine otherwise. I figured the psu couldn't handle the 9800 and stuck the 9600 in there to troubleshoot and lessen the load. EQ still froze with the 9600 which is why I replaced the motherboard. On a new motherboard with less things plugged into the power supply and downgrade in a cpu, the stupid thing still managed to pull the same stunt. I realize that the psu needs to be replaced either way but I am just hoping that I don't to replace the motherboard and cpu yet again. This is getting costly. LOL.
I know this probably sounds bad but like I said, I don't know a lot about computers so this is one of those things where I am learning the hard way. I also think proprietary computers should not come with agp slots or places to add more drives because it's misleading for them to make you think that you can stick extra things in there.
