So awhile back I talked about my comp blowing a gasket. On recommendation from you guys, I looked at the caps.
Some were, indeed, going bad. And I don't know how to recap.
I ordered a replacement (same make and model) but... that had bad caps too.
So now I'm on the hunt for motherboards. I've watched youtube videos, but one thing annoys me: It seems like computer build guides on youtube or the web always seem to want to build either a 486 or else a super-mega-giga computer with a dual-core processor. One is too weak for my needs, while the other is way too strong (why would you ever want a dual-core processor in Windows 98, which can't even use dual cores?)
So here's the range I'm looking for:
700mhz roughly, though I'm willing to take slightly higher or lower.
Has to have at least one PCI slot and one ISA slot.
Preferably using ps/2 ports but should have at least one (preferably two) USB ports, plus an old serial mouse port in case I need to break those out again.
Preferably not one known for having bad caps.
So what motherboards fit these requirements? My Epox-8KTA fit them and I think it was made around 2000 or so, but I can't find any sort of easy reference on motherboards (even the Vogons Wiki only goes up to "Super Socket 7" which sounds like it was still little better than a 486).
Thanks in advance.
