    Bought a pc for €600 , here is my story . Hi , I've been with a technician, cause I got no display on my screen , he said I needed a new cpu , bought one for €100 that was Compatible with my motherboard , then I ring him today to ask if every thing is ok and ready , he says I need a new motherboard , I just don't understand , when I got the pc I didn't like the case so I went on eBay bought a new case bought anti static wrist straps bought anti static packaging took everything out making sure everything was ok , but I got no display , and now I'm after putting €300 extra in the pc so I could have bought a €900 beast pc but , I'm so angry , what should I do ? Should I go in , sell the stuff for money to build a new pc ? Or should I try and get money to get a new motherboard ?

    That's entirely up to you. There is no right or wrong answer. It boils down to your budget and whether or not you want to keep what you've already paid for. The best you could hope for would be to break even and simply start over. More likely, if you sell, you will lose money.

    processors ALMOST never go bad......only with a bad overclock or bent pins/mishandling

    replay is correct. CPUs are very hard to hurt unless you overclock/overvolt them or physically damage it during install. The other way to hurt the cpu is to do just what you did; change the case. If a standoff was not installed correctly, you can short the motherboard to the case and cause a LOT of damage.
