    my motherbourd blew not to long ago..so im going to take this chance to upgrade to a better bourd/cpu/ram combo ...then put all my other stuff from my ramaining computer in it. what are some good combos out there for a good price? im thinking im going with AMD again..i had a 750 athlon...which did pretty good. does any one out there need a computer case with a 350 watt supply in it, or 256 megs of pc-133 ram, or possibly a athlon 750 cpu...not sure if its still good yet...cuase ill be getting rid of this stuff....
