So my mom's power supply went up in a puff of smoke and although the motherboard and P3 chip still load windows, there's sever stability issues.
So mom thinks it's time for an upgrade, and I agree. It's main use is gonna be email/Internet, with the occasional heavy use of youtube, so requirements are pretty light. However, I would like to build this for power efficiency.
I was looking at TR's system guide, and I'm going to go with a Pentium E2140/60/80. However, the Gigabyte board recommended is not offered by either ncix.com or Tigerdirect.ca (me living in Canada). So I need another suggestion. I'm thinking integrated graphics for the simple fact that solitaire will be the most graphics heavy application used. Passive chipset cooling would also be a big plus.
