can someone recomend a mobo+amd cpu+memory for my bruvs pc? his board blew the other night i dont think we can replace it as it is 3 yrs old with amd athlon 1.5 ghz cpu,pc100 mem,so its way out of date.
what he need is a board etc around 1.6 to 2ghz,price is the main consideration as he is a pensioner so can only afford around £100 odd,do pc world do one? also is the amd "semperon" the replacement for the athlon?

help much appeciated ,poor old boy is missing his gaming. :D

If you're sure it's just the motherboard then you can get a cheap replacement here. I don't know a lot about AMD but I think the CPU you refer to is Socket A?

Be aware that if you replace the motherboard with anything other than the same make/model & you are running W2k or above, the original HDD is unlikely to boot due to differences in the drivers for the IDE interface. In this event you will need a fresh install.
