Ahh cool well the reason i asked in the first instance is that whilst trawling about trying to work out what out of the many may work, i came across a forum that suggest that this motherboard had issues with certain levels of cards (i was looking up nvidia cards) and suggested that it wouldn't take 2.0 cards only 1.0a (please correct me if i am wrong on that!) And something to do with backwards compatibility which caused an unstable system or just failed to work althogether!
Well after 2 weeks of trying to work this out i have one last place to try and then i think it's a rebuild.......am beginning to love my husbands laptop as i am a mess without some form of technology infront of me lol! Thanks guys for all your help. oooo and if i start a new build is it best to start with board or cpu? I cant remember what i started with last time!!! lol was 5 yrs ago and i have slept alot since then
hee hee x
Ok well my last port of call failed miserably!
So I have been looking into a new system! I am on low buget but have come up with this......how does it sound to you all??
Motherboard: ASRock N68C-S
CPU: AMD Athlon ll AM3 Quad core x4 640
HDD: 500GB SATA 2
The graphics is all intergrated and seems fit for what i want
And the other thing i wished to know is would a case with a 200w PSU do all this happily or should i look for something a little more meaty
Sorry for being so sappy it's just i would love a top end top notch pc but funds just dont stretch lol and well i wouldn't want to spend all that money and then get it all wrong!!
Anyway some feedback would be great ty xx
