Cheap Socet A board/cheap PC help..
I just had a mail from my mother-in-law telling me that her aged and venerable KS741 based Sempron has just died. So..3 options appear.
1. Get a new board for it. Expensive now, but all parts could be reused.
2. Get a new board/chip/ram bundle. Expensive, but more up to date.
3. Get a cheap second hand PC.
Anyone got any suggestions? She's complaining about being terminally short of cash, but..£50 for a socket A board seems silly when you can get clearance older Dell kit for £99ish in places.
What would you do?
