Hi, I recently got my brothers old computer, the PSU does not work and I can't be arsed to buy a new PSU for it. So I was planning on making a LAN PC out of the parts. I am not sure however about what motherboard I should get.

This is the setup I am planning on getting: (AG=Already Got)

Case: Silverstone SG07 (with 600w PSU)
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 @ 2.40Ghz (AG)
GPU: Geforce 7800GT Gainward (AG)
RAM: 2GB 500Mhz DDR Corsair (2x1gb) (AG)
HDD: 250GB 3,5" Internal HDD

I think that's all the components..
And I am not planning on buying anything I don't need, like an SSD.
So yeah, what motherboard should I get? One that fits the CPU and the memory..
Thanks for taking the time to read this =)

Don't bump the thread so much.Anyway that pc is VERY outdated.The parts it has are unusable for a gaming pc of any kind.

He speaks the truth. The best that PC can do is be relegated to an internet browser/email checker.

For a LAN you'll need all new components.

It's not that bad on lan parties I play retro games and for that it'll do great. although an overhaul would do it some good.

Unless the party is specifically for retro games, in which case a 5 year old PC will obviously do fine, then he will need a new system for current generation games.

Did we really have to state an old computer will work better on old games?

It good for light games like reflexive games.
