It is already 3 generations old and hardly worth calling it future proofing it. It is difficult to find those motherboards today and I was unable to find one on Newegg with both ram std.
Well thank you for your honesty, and pardon my ignorance.
Originally I thought my power supply was gone, but a replacement power supply did not help, and although the motherboard looks fine, that must be the problem
I guess i'll start searching for a new motherboard and processor
