I have a 6 year old machine that I think the MB is gone on. I replaced the power supply with an Asus 300 watt that I had here and it still is doing nothing. It has an ATX MB now so I am thinking that the connectors will fit. I am looking at NewEgg and the AMD cpu's but just wanted to post and see what advice I can get from here. This machine does nothing but web surfing, e-mail, and file storage on our home network. It has integrated graphics and sound now so I don't have either one of those to install.
It has a Asus A7N266 board and Athlon CPU in it now if that helps to know the Power Supply connectors.
I normally don't put a lot of faith in those reviews but when they are that bad I do take notice
Is there a reason to use the AMD board and chip because of power usage vs the Intel? The reason I ask is I just built a machine using this MB and was surprised to find it at this price. It was around $100 when I bought it the first time. I am not sure what CPU would be best but I think I can get one cheap enough to match the Foxxcon deal above.
