Hi I'm trying to revive a wasted dell opltiplex 260. It didn't have: CPU, RAM, HDD, Optical Drive... i should have told you actually what i do have: Case, PSU, Mobo with most of the capacitors are blown or in the process of blowing. I have partially recapped it, thrown two sticks of 512 MB DDR (total 1GB), and a 40 GB HDD. The CPU is a old Celeron at 1.8 Ghz, 128 K, 400 FSB. Installed an XP on it, works ok, but i'm thinking to turning it into a semi-HTPC, but the CPU really lacks the power. So i took my download machine apart and pulled it's CPU out, another Celeron but @ 2.66 Ghz 256 K, 533 FSB, problem is that it won't boot up. I have reflashd the bios with the latest version but it didn't do any change. The chipset on the mobo is Intel 845G. I have searched over the net for some supported CPU's, mobo info etc. but didn't find something helpful. Ohh and one more thing, what would be the recommended cpu speed for 720p with Intel on board graphics...if possible, and do a old Radeon 9250 128 MB would help ? as i have one of them in low profile but it's tooo long and hits into the harddrive bays so it need some moding and don't know if it deserves the trouble.
