Dear CRT

As your PC is home made it is unlikely that anyone can offer any real help other than suggestions, and that is the problem with home built PCs if they go wrong you have no one to turn to for help.

I would suggest that you go back to the motherboard's makers and ask what peripherals they recommend should be used with their product. Failing that, talk to people you bought your motherboard from, I am sure that they also build PCs to order and, as they are likely to have the experience, may know which bits will work well with your particular motherboard.

Unfortunately, you are going to have to put in a lot of time, effort and probably money (buying new peripherals) to put your PC right, as I said in my first post, as soon as you solve one problem another will pop up.

I originally home-built my first pentium PC but two years later, when it started to go wrong, I got so frustrated with the time, effort and money I had to spend to keep it going that I vowed "never again". The "savings" I had originally made with home building just evaporated.

When it eventually died, I went down to PC World and bought a new computer. Therefore, if the new PC goes wrong then PC World will have the hassle of putting right.
