Dad's Computer / Home Server - My first AMD build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My dad's computer / our home server just died a few days ago. It has been running a Pentium 4 (single core) for a few years now. It's extremely out dated with DDR1 RAM and an FX5500 for GPU. It was overheating to about 90C so we had to do something. Instead of buying replacement parts for an old computer we thought about going AMD. We had a budget of $200 USD so we went to our good friend Mr. Song. He provided us a deal with a triple core AMD, 2GB of DDR2 memory and a decent motherboard with onboard sound and graphics. I got the computer all set up and now all I need is to get windows 7 on it.

I sat there for hours trying to figure out how to manage it. All I managed to do was that one part.
