Post Motherboard
I have an old motherboard just lying around in my scrap component pile...

I don't build computers, so I am not familiar with these things. What would happen if i connect everything from another old computer to this motherboard?

The motherboard is like a year older than the one from the computer [that I'd be taking parts from]. And they're from around 2000.

totally depends on its socket for cpu

best bet would be to get the id number off motherboard go to the site see whats is compatability is and cross reference this to what bits and bobs you have about which you are wishing to build

for example this is mine so can see what compatability i have with other odds and ends

Ok, what if this motherboard has a cpu in it?

Can I still connect everything else and it will work? or are they cpu dependent?

Thanks.

These are the two that I'm thinking of splicing together:

And

I was thinking of using the Compaq's board and adding the other stuff from the Dell.

Don't ask why, it's just an experiment for me.
