I'll have my mother board sunny side up

My mother board recently fried. My IT Nephew says my hard drive is OK.
Does anyone have a Gateway 3.2 GHz, Pentium 4 mother board they can part with for a reasonable price?

What are you trying to accomplish? Because it would almost surely be a lot cheaper and easier to just get a new machine at that point. And you don’t need the original motherboard to recover your data

Also to note, you don’t need a gateway MoBo, just one that supports a Pentium 4 socket (LGA 775 usually I think) such as this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813500058

With deals like this it’s beyond me why you would put any money into that older system in the present day. I suppose if you really had a budget cap you could do as you propose but the money is better put toward a newer system.

If you want to keep your existing hard drive, here’s a bit cheaper combo.

If you’re not interested in assembling your own but still looking for a cheap computer, I may suggest the Lenovo Outlet.

It could be Socket 478. It would need to be checked.

I’m not one of those people who has to have the latest and greatest computers. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. My computer (before frying) did what I wanted it to do.

Somewhere around here I have a socket 754 motherboard with onboard video, a cpu and 1.5gb ram. It may take a little more work to use, but you can have it for the cost of shipping. I don’t remember if I have a CPU cooler for it, but there’s one on amazon for 15. PM me if you’re interested.
