Troubleshooting tip: Since you have a 2nd system, next time you should try just testing parts 1 by 1 between the 2 systems and try to check off whats working.
Agreed. I would definitely spend the extra cash if its worth while to spend on better quality parts. In the end (I've learned the hard way), those extra dollars (or Euros) go a long way.
Heh, thanks for the tip mate
I thought about it but I didn't really want to change anything to my old cow when it still worked
She's a fragile thing, lol! I was afraid to break anything, leaving me with two broken PC's
(Yea I'm still kinda n00b in the whole computer/mod department)
Plus it's so old I doubt I can use it well for testing, lol.

I think I'm going for this one:
It's not the cheapest but also not extremely expensive (60 euro's here including shipping). It looks well and although it's an extreme overkill for the Old Cow: it'd be good enough as a backup for my new PC too, just in case. Also, it's modular. I've always wanted to tidy up my Old Cow but I never got a reason untill now, since the PSU worked and I was happy it did
And when you see this pic, you'll know why I want to tidy it up xD
