I have several desktops that are out of service due mainly to age. My daughter needs something to do emails and some internet work on an online exchange for inventory, etc. Absolutely no gaming, video or photo editing capability needed.
I don't think that I can use any of the motherboards due to their old style power cords (I don't know what they are called, but they are big slotted things). The newest of the CPU's is a Pentium (4) the best I can tell. Can I reuse it with a new "bare bones" MB? If so, what is the best way to store it while I'm getting the rest of the parts together?
I bought a Samsung 128G SSD and I have plenty of extra hard drives to add for file and document storage. I've never done this before so please consider me to be fairly ignorant of terms and abbreviations (although, I'm getting awesome at Googling). I think that I will get Win7 just because she is handy with XP and I'm guessing that her transition will be a little easier.
Thanks in advance.
