I recently came to a realization that I had enough old spare parts to potentially build a full computer out of it. Do you guys have any suggestions as to which pieces I should use? Do any parts still have some potential? If the benefits are great, I wouldn't mind purchasing some new parts, but I really would like to keep this as close to 0$ as possible.
I'm a little worried though,
1. Even though it's a socket 775 motherboard, it says it's for "Core 2 Quad / Core 2 Duo / Pentium Dual-Core / Celeron Dual-Core" CPUs. Does this mean that a Pentium 4 will not be compatible?
2. It says it supports DDR2 667/800 RAM, but mine is clocked @ 533Mhz... will this be an issue?
3. I know this board has mostly SATA ports, with one IDE port, will I be able to run my HDDs with it? At least one?
