I have an old computer here and about all it's used for these days is web browsing, playing games on Facebook, etc. the heaviest load it ever gets is some DVD ripping and video file compression, both of which I leave run overnight so don't care how fast it does it.
Unfortunately it was on the floor in the basement when we had a flood. It was about 4 inches deep in water. It was off at the time and not badly harmed. At this point it still works other than it beeps at least three times on booting up, sometimes more and needs to be rebooted several times when that happens, also some of the USB ports are faulty.
The motherboard in it is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813130055
I could just replace that and I'm fairly certain the system would work, these are not available other than used so I'm looking for recommendations on what would work with the CPU and RAM chips that I have;http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819115003http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820145590
Also I require the motherboard to have a co-ax digital audio output to connect to a surround sound receiver.
Otherwise I could replace all three of these components, any recommendations of what to get would be welcome. I've always preferred Intel products. I would also prefer a CPU compatible with the cooler that I have , http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6835185038
The power supply was already replaced last year, so is a relatively new product. The video card is working fine. The hard drive was already upgraded to 1 TB. thanks for any help
