Motherboard and Processor combo

My dads PC seems to have died and i believe its either the mobo or processor. He's looking to buy both (upgrade/repair) but he's unsure which to buy as he has 4x DDR2 2gb sticks, therefore limited to which mobo to use. His current motherboard is the 'Biostar A740G M2+ Socket AM2+ Motherboard' and the processor is the 'AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5600+ 2.90GHz (Retail AM2)'. Any help or advice will be greatly received +rep

It's unlikely both the cpu and motherboard has failed, if it wont switch on may be the psu.

If you have ddr2 best bet is get a cheap g41 mobo and chuck an intel quad or duo in.
Try THIS the old paper clip trick to see if it is your PSU.
The PSU is fine and all the outputs have been checked. The mobo beeps when he tries to turn it on though.
Beeping is usually a hardware fault or something not seating properly. How about reseating RAM/Graphics card just to check for now?
Take the memory out, reset the bios and try one stick at a time.
memory is fine. Ive sorted the beep out, it was the power supply to the graphics card. Still doesn't turn on though
