I last upgraded my mobo/cpu/ram when the Core i7 first hit the market. I bought a Asus 6PTE deluxe version 2 mobo, and a corei7 920 cpu and 12 gig of RAM.
Something is wrong with the PC and it won’t start up. There is power to the mobo, and pressing the two power/reset buttons does not start the machine.
I tried replacing the battery and removing peripherals … no luck.
I think I need to rebuild.
Within a maybe budget around 500-700 UK inc of RAM, can anyone recommend a mobo, RAM and CPU?
The machine is a music machine, running Cubase 8, a lot of VST’s some of which are heavy duty.
I am way out of date, and completely befuzzled by the market.
Would not want less performance than my Corei7 920
thank you all
