I'm not sure if running the system in this state will be safe for other components (ie your ram). I wouldnt recommend it if you cannot afford to replace anything more.

A new motherboard isnt that costly, especially 3 year old ones. I imagine it would cost less than replacing the ram.

ps clean inside your PC !
i think i'll buy a new mobo, i don't want to risk any other components...i was thinking about the NF7-S2 its cheap, not a major upgrade and its awesome by what i've heard...what do you guys think? any other recommendations?
i don't want a major upgrade as i said...

oh and the reason i don't clean my pc a lot is that its simply a dust gets dirty too easily and i have no patience to clean it...and my IMT4000 doesn't help any, especially cuz i installe a fan on top and thus i cannot remove the cover completely...hard to describe...maybe i'll post a pic later
