After three trips to Fry's I have nothing to show for it but an empty gas tank, a sunburn and a headache. Board I got this morning didn;t work. Took it back about 1PM, it tested fine at Fry's so I brought it home for another go. Same problems, so this time I just returned it. They credited $248 to my paypal debit card and it isn;t showing up at the moment but I'll deal with that later. I came to the conclusion that I was building a computer better than I needed that I wasn't going to have time to use anyway.
The survivng two computers were the better ones anyway. Two is enough, I will scrap the others for parts that will probably go on Ebay.
