I got some more ram for it from a friend.

Installed it, started up the computer, and smelled a burn and seen smoke, Turned off the computer, took it out. I turn it back on the monitor wont be recognized.

I been meaning to start building a computer. Gives me the boost to do it.. i guess. It gave me a good 8 yrs


but anyone know a good motherboard i should get?

if you want to learn before building from scratch, get a dell, pay for the three year warranty and you can do whatever the heck you want to it. (just so long as there is no #2 phillips screwdriver rammed through the board when the tech replaces it) it will cost you a bit for the warranty, but the comp itself is cheap and comes with a free Vista and an ms works that makes you eligible to upgrade to the office. (saving more money)

but seriously. if you don;t have the skillz needed or know someone that does, then you should probably work on picking them up with a big box vendors system first.

if you still want to build it yourself (and do keep in mind while pricing components that the retail boxes usually do come with an OS and offer better service contracts) then you will find plenty of help here on what to combine with what.
