Shit happens

Couple of posts back I've mentioned about my desktop computer been broken... So I did the proper troubleshoot and prognosis said motherboard dead.

So  I did whatever the average joe will do on such a case.. Buy a new mobo.
Problem with this kind of things is that 2 years old technology is not really available. I had 4 ddr2 dims on that mobo so I needed a 4 slot motherboard AM2/AM2+ socket...

long story short... I got one and guess what...
My proc is a Phenom 9850 X4 who runs on 125 watts... motherboard only support 95 watts CPU so i'm fucked.

Time to upgrade... I'll need to get an exchange and maybe spend 500 dollars in cpu, mobo and ram.
