My Dell 8400 is fried...the power connector from the power supply to the motherboard is fried, so I either need to replace both -OR- start over from a barebones system.

I'm not sure I want to replace the MOBO with an OEM one as I might have the same problem down the road, but I'm not sure what sort of barebones system to try.

For a barebones system, I guess all I'd need is a new chassis, MOBO with video, the standard connections (USB, etc), a new power supply and I guess I might as well get a new CPU.

Any suggestions?
