Toby: Interesting you should mention that and thank you for the URLs.
This morning, I made my expedition to the shopping center in North
Cali, where there are many tiny stores that sell computers and parts.
The one I settled on (After going into 8 or 10 stores I knew the 2nd

Also got prices on a new tower, mainboard (for Socket 775), Celeron
