    Ok thanks. I'm asking because I recently just fried either my CPU or Mobo because of a bad PSU and I don't have the spare parts to tell which one, but I got no POST on boot up with a new PSU so I ordered replacement Mobo and CPU.

    The original setup was old tech - Gigabyte 8I915PL-G Socket 775 Motherboard - Intel P4 641 3.2Ghz HT 2M 800FSB Socket 775 so I was able to find replacement parts cheap, no cash for a real upgrade yet, but I didn't get new Ram and my buddy got me worried that if the original Ram got fried it might fry my new CPU and/or Mobo, so I thought I'd get some better advice here!
