I've had the same computer for nearly five years now, my brother built it for me. It is way outdated and just about anything would be a great change. I used the same 1.5ghz processor for the majority of its use, until it quit in August. I bought a new one, but this motherboard just isn't doing it for me, it will only read the processor speed up to 1.5, only read up to 1GB of ram, and only has PCI slots and one AGP. I'm not sure what would be best for me. I only have $150 to spend right now, but I will have more in the next couple months. Thanks! I was looking at a couple 'combo' deals on Newegg, but I don't know much about what hardware is good and what isn't, I just know how to use it. Can't post the links, sorry.
