Ok my computer is on my sig, but if you guys are lazy to look its a AGP mobo, DDR1 and just a single core 3500+. Recently something in my computer is dying, i would give you a screenshot, but 99% of you guys will say its a hardware issue, lets just think artifacts. Will send a screenie if you guys request it. It happens sometimes, be it playing a game or playing a movie (mpg/avi). So i figured it was either my graphics card, or my motherboard. I sort of fixed a hanging issue, when the southbridge fan kinda died and it kept freezing every game application. But i think that some sort of hardware damage has already been done to either the GPU or the MOBO. The GPU has been sorta damaged and I have posted on this forum before, will find it after to paste to here. *edit* Link My question is, Since its either one (GPU or MOBO), should I, replace the graphics card and stay on an AGP board, or replace both MOBO and GPU. Reason i ask is I dont want to spend $200 (AUD) for a graphics card as i rather just pay a lil bit extra for a PCI-express card and mobo. Is the upgrade. Just remember that i will want to use the DDR1 ram back so AM2 is not an option for me at this moment. As most probably this will have mixed feelings, i will take each one with consideration, what to take into consideration is: DDR1 reuse, conroe in the near future or now?, changing everything for the conroe? Thx in advance.
