    That's unfortunate.  You sure it wasn't the PSU that took half of the house down or were those separate instances?  Regardless, I know the pain of down parts.
     
    For next time, instead of scratch offs, save the funds and you'd have a new PC by now.

    Hey guess you're right haha woke up today and my roommate's  new ram is going again probably  the old clunker of a psu at it's work..well  at least I got my cellphone rofl . welp maybe i can get that 750 in  two months. Finally my roommate grasps it not good to wait  till it fries if you know it is  needing to be replaced cause we could of started saving like 4 months ago.

    If your tight on funds, keep an eye on deal sites like slickdeals.net. I see power supplies deals all the time on it.

    ^_^
    Some years ago I lost a PC to a bad brand new PSU.  It was on sale and looked very cool all red LEDs and named Diablo.  Blew up in less than 5 min taking my MOBO and brand new BFG video card with it.  The MOBO was old so I just purchased a new one and after I told BFG support how the PSU had killed my video card and they send me a brand new one via RMA.
    BFG went out of business, I think they may have gave away to much stuff to stay profitable.  Now days I only buy the most expensive and high quality name brand PSU I can afford at the time.  Good luck with your savings.  :)

    Keep an eye on deal sites like that one, sometimes you can find 80+ gold rated  units under $60.
     
    You can make that much $$ by selling plasma in a month easy.

    Yea sadly I am diabetic so I can't sell plasma.Not where I am plus they only give like 15 bucks .I went to the deal sight said 12 bucks for a supply. till i went to the site selling it and  you had to pay 40 then  get a rebate card later.still good price. Evga..As luck would have it i went to take my cat to a vet who was willing to help  me knowing my finances. Here I had to walk  must of looked pathetic with me and my cane and a bulky cat carrier . By the time I got her there she had passed away.I couldn't believe it. I would of called the vet a liar if i had not watched her take my cat out of her carrier.Get home read messages on my phone which I got before this mess with my pc . So at least when i have a bit of money and if something does happen I at least can order my parts.Best buy only carries PNY and looking up my good motherboard I have stored in it's box  it's not compatible . Pny doesn't seem compatible with many motherboards when you look at their listed compatible  memory . Crossing my fingers though that come next month when  I get money I can get something..lol Patience has never been a gift for me  err talent of mine.

    Sorry to hear about your cat.  I am still recovering from losing my Angelina beagle dog to cancer.  Pets bring a lot of love into their homes.
    That said please do not buy PNY memory from Best Buy at their inflated prices.  NewEgg almost always has some kind of RAM on sale.  And they have a mobile app so you can order from your phone.

    Yea just got my first phone..30 dollars just before recent pc issues.had no choice before.not having access to cell or a pc.finally convince roommate to stop using the pc cause no need to fry more parts.better to be safe i think. At least this is what i think is going on cause graphics fried . Then suddenl memory is on it's way windows saying 8gbs of ram (7.19gb useable) last time i seen that ram fried few days later..the memory is only 2 months old so my only conclusion can. Be is that the psu is sending power spikes.honesty don't care for amd a-10 series as i like to have my own options on graphics.you can use geforce with a10 but radeon would enhace better 4 a10 so annoying as i am a geforce die hard type

    What exact PSU is this?  It's looking like the PSU could be the culprit in your components frying.
