We had a Dell Vostro 230 crap out the other day, and it was no longer under warranty. Since we work for a relatively new startup, we try to be thrifty. We decided it was cheaper to buy a new motherboard and case instead of buying a brand new PC. Well it turns out that my Desktop technician Frank had never built his own computer before. He's swapped out parts, but has never taken an empty case, and assempled his own machine. I felt it was high time he remedied that!
