Computer woes

Just heard back from the computer shop. My power supply is gone (no surprise) and apparently the fan on my mother board malfunctioned because some chipset on it burned out. The good news is they have a compatible motherboard for my processor and memory, so I don't need to get it all replaced (would be easier just to buy a new computer otherwise). The bad news is I'll have to re-install XP and my programs. I guess that isn't too bad, they can back up my entire drive beforehand, and this'll get rid of two years worth of Windows nonsense polluting the drive.
