Before I bought a motherboard I'd buy a [decent] power supply.
If that doesn't do it then I'd do a motherboard unless it's a pretty old unit.
I wouldn't hook a new motherboard to the power supply that's in it without having it tested properly.
A power supply can appear to work but be bad.
Hook a new motherboard to it & it immediatly fries the new motherboard !
