The power supply just quit working (probably over loaded it). Would like to replace the motherboard and cpu and memory using the existing case and use all my existing devices. Not sure if that is practical. If so, what would you recommend. If I need to replace the case as well, something simple will do. Also what size in watts of power supply should I use. Switching over to an AMD setup would be fine if it woud suit my needs better or just as well.
I use(d) this pc for word processing, somewhat complicated spreadsheets, recording CD's, watching TV and DVD's, listening to music, and files, lots of files. Also email, surfing the web, and occasionally downloading 20 to 250 mb work files. No gaming. I usually have a spreadsheet open, a word document open, a couple of browser windows open and am listening to music all at once but not much more than that. I really don't want to shell out a lot of money for a new system just yet. Hope to upgrade this and make it last for a while longer.
I would really appreciate your help and recommendations.
