Will be used for some gaming for the kid...school work, etc. The PC currently was able to play everything that he wanted and could even play crysis and farcry2 - not great, but it worked, LOL!
Just wanna get this one back up and rolling for at least a year for the kid.
not taking any risk for open box, but thanks for the thought.
I think what I narrowed it down to is prolly the cheapest (with the decent ECS mobo). I didn't get why the ECS manual said everything about AM2+, but nothing about AM2, which is the cpu I picked out. Just wanted to make sure that it would all be compatible.
Thx for the replies guys!
