    Little help please! Mobo and CPU combinations

    Hi all,

    After a disastrous weekend with blown up PSU's and broken motherboards, i've decided to start again with my uncles' PC.

    I haven't built one for a couple of years so could someone please help me out with a bit of an upgrade?!

    I need a Mobo and CPU, not completely entry level, but decent enough.

    Anyone suggest some good combo's, preferably AMD, but i'll go intel as it's not my PC!

    Thankyou

    How much do you want to spend, and what will it be used for?

    Seconded - no point having the latest greatest core 2 duo if he's only using it to word process/browse the web
