Over the last couple of months I've had to replace my FDD, CD-ROM, and HDD. I had hoped that the new HDD would solve some problems I've had, but they're back, so I guess it's time to get rid of this old slot A mobo. What I'm thinking about using is this:

BIOSTAR NF325-A7 Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250 ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Sempron 64 2500+ Palermo 800MHz FSB 256KB L2 Cache Socket 754

pqi POWER Series 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) System Memory

I'm on a tight budget at the moment, so at $156.00 this is appealing.

Any thoughts or ideas are welcome.

I do have one question, the power supply is a 300W Antec, is this enough for this system?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Here you can check your needed wattage. Some would recommend have a PSU with some extra power. It would give you more stable output.
