Hi (or high) ... :tazz:

Welcome to Geeks to Go. I will see if I can answer any concerns that you may have.

I guess the (numerous) question is this:

The system board is an atx (presumed)
(Yes ..... there is a way to tell... iffin ya'll waan know feel free to ask......)

Is the RAM ya'll plugged in compatible with the chip set on the system board?

(Most people don't think about that .... kinda like throwing a Ford engine against a Chevy transmission)

Hard drives is a kinda no brainer .... the hard drive is all the "passengers" in the vehicle ya'll try'n to start. The hard drive will be a later issue...... let's just get the engine "started".

BIOs systems will no allow a "burnout" unless you have a physical issue....so no woories there ... you just get a series of "beep codes" if the BIOS don't like what cha'll doing... :-)
