my bad. i have you confused. the amd 64 3200+ is my original CPU and I still have the original mobo. the only things i have upgraded so far is the sound card, video card, and dvd drive. yesterday i ordered a new PSU and RAM for it. i was asking what was the literal life expectancy of my cpu (AMD 64 3200+) like how long before it dies? i have never oc'ed or anything, everything was/is ran by default. what would usually need replacing first, the PSU or CPU?
