This happened to me once. I was absolutely devastated.

About a year after I got to the USA I bought a cube chassis. This was ooo, around 2000? I originally built a dual P2 Xeon rig into it. It all worked well

Then at some point I bought an Abit mobo, AMD Duron 900mhz and some ram. I was really poor at this time, and something didn't work. Looking back now I am pretty sure the used Duron was the cause, and that the die had cracked on it (common fault on AMDs when not mounted correctly). I also bought a second mobo, but the problem persisted. So I had the cube case, two brand new boards, ram, a Hercules Geforce 3 and an expensive sound card (Turtle Beach, based on the Crystal chip). All very high end gear. Plus a PSU and other spare parts.

I moved from my mother in laws house to my father in laws and she forking bunged the lot. Seriously, I don't think I have ever been that close to murdering an in law and they pulled some pretty crappy stunts over the years.
