Yes I have Ubuntu my friend but it will not even start up - if it did I would try that but it is as dead as.
Well I got it for nothing (local farmer was trashing it) and I suppose push comes to shove then I will just have to get another 775 socket board - G41 chipset (about $70 + shipping).
I suppose I could try another PSU this one might be going but with minimal power perhaps I can just drape the cables over the side and see what happens.
The rest of the gear like RAM I have stacks of just seems a shame as this machine I put a SSD in it and 7 about six months ago. Other than that maybe I will have to look at an i3 and a 1155 board.
