Specs: Windows XP, athlon 64/4 gig
Yeah my pc went up I think i fried the mobo and me trying to fix it.Well let's say I freed the ghost.Anyway I have a back up dell c521 slim case im using now but before i was using a athlon 64 3700+ with 3 gig's of ram and a 4670 hd radeon card .And it ran game's alright but what i don't get is the dell c521 have 4 gigs of ram and it's also an athlon 64 and the video card with a hacksaw i got it in..But anyway it run like crap big time and i don't get it.But what im wondering is should i get a new cpu for the dell or just look for another mobo. Man i got to get back to darksider's i think that's the game that killed my mobo lol

Don't waste the time or money, replace the entire system.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Yeah i think im gonna save up for a new mobo and just forget the one that went up.Basically what happen was i was playing darksider's and the video just went out but the pc just stayed on. And holding the power button in for a while didnt work it had to be unpluged.Resetting the battery re-seating ram trying different psu and nothing no post beeps since it first went out.So i just figured the mobo or cpu just happen to go up.Yeah so i was asking about upgraded the dell 521 with maybe a new cpu the mem already max out at 4 gig's it just the cpu is weak.But like i said im just gonna look for a new or used mobo
