CPU broken....need new comp. advice.
Ok so i got an Intel 4 board. with Intel CPU. its about 5 years old now...but i turned it on and it started to smell like burning computer parts and well it turns on but no screen. So i think the cpu is fried.
So..if im buying a new CPU i should just get a new mother board.
what do you guys suggest? My friend swears by AMD..but i want to know why.
what should i get?
price range is about 400 for a board and CPU. Everythign else in the comp is good.
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon...
