said by koitsu:No thanks, that is okay. If it would to just die and not work any more I would just scrap this old P4 and replace it with my Core i5 2500k system that I just got to replace this old spare system.
Let me ask you something very bluntly: are you willing to replace the parts in this system with something more recent, assuming you can do so on a budget with some help (from me)? I have hardware right now which I could send you (mostly free of charge -- some you would need to pay for however) that could build you a reliable replacement system (Socket 775, PCI Express, etc.). Specifically: motherboard, CPU, and video card. The board uses DDR3 RAM (one of the few Socket 775s which do) and I don't have any of that for you, but it's *super* cheap right now. I have the details typed out and ready to so just say yes/no.
