Hahahahahahah!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!! I got a new mobo to replace the other one. Zipzoomfly didn't ask any questions or anything. All I had to do was pay for shipping there and insure the package. They had it for 2 days before the return shipment was shipped back via 2 day air for free again. The only problem was they shipped it last Wednesday and because of Thanksgiving, UPS was closed Thurs-Sun. Ahh! So it was free 2 day: 6 day shipping
They sent back all the original accessories (cables, dirver disk, jumpers, and manual) but a brand new motherboard....Thanks zipzoom
Anyways I got it all put together and and the emachine is well on it's way to becoming a realmachine. I have my celeron 2.66 ghz processor nicely overclocked at 3.31 ghz. This is the same as I had it before things went haywire. 512mb samsung PC2700 ram at around 333mhz with 2-3-3-6 latency. The funniest part of all is with a bus speed of 661.4 mhz and a half ghz oc on my processor, it is running about 10 degrees cooler than it was at 533mhz bus and 2.66ghz stock speed on the old intel board.
Now about that video card I was hunting for......
