    Hi guys!

    I've got a question. I bought these components a couple of years ago, I
    think, I just recently wondered if I should scrap them and get something
    else. (mobo and CPU).

    The mobo is K7n2 Delta 2 Plantinum MSI and the CPU is, I think, 3200 AMD,
    and I think it was fast for it's time. Socket A. It is OEM, so can't really
    be sure. I matched it up at the time using the reviews off newegg.

    I've also got a Cooler Master black tower case, high end PS, 2 sticks of
    Corsair Value Select 512 mb, 184 pin DDR. Also a Sata HD, about 60 G's. All
    the rest of the stuff, optical drives, floppy, modem. Logictech wireless
    mouse and KB, nice cooler, and fans. I also have Geoforce MX4000 AGP8X.
    video card.

    All this unopened.

    So....what are my choices to salvage something here? I'd guess a newer mobo
    migh even havae better on board graphics, right?

    I don't really game, and use my system now for business, (AMD 1600, on a
    Epox DDR 8KHA mobo with some older DDR..) I'm a dinasour, right?? man, I
    havent' even built a system in years. I had to get a new USB mem stick
    becasue my old one just ate my files. Nothing there at all. So I was reading
    the reviews at newegg and here I am..........

    What do I want to do? Well upgrade to forstall any crashes, really. This
    system has been rock solid for years. XP pro, but I'll need to get a new OS,
    probably XP Home. One problem is my UBS ports now are only 1.1 (and in the
    back of the box).

    Any suggestions will be appreciated!

    Two years ago it's... well a century in the computer world.

    I suggest you buy a totally new system and sell what you have on ebay,
    at last you can get some bucks for the new system.
