Just curious, what's the current state of affairs on this?

(the mainboards I gave to family have returned unused :wink: )

I managed to assemble a cheap old dell with plenty of old RAM. It lasted me nicely until I had my 40th in April. Then I got a load of birthday money and used it to build the nice PC listed in my signature.

As for the old Dell... My brother-in-law has an old knackered PC that he dropped off last night. I'm gonna see if it's salvageable. If not, I'll let him have the Dell on long term loan, conditional that when he finally gets a new PC or mine breaks again (hoping that won't happen, but you never know), I'll get it back.

The old motherboard was knackered. Only the CPU which I sold to raise money for parts.

My brother-in-law is getting the old Dell. His PC is totally kaput.
