    I've got a few extra components, and I might finish off a system and sell it. What do you guys think I could get for this?

    Mid-tower case just like mine w/ 300 watt power supply: http://eck.cjb.net/case.gif
    Soyo P4X400 Ultra Platinum Motherboard, onboard sound, LAN, DDR 400 support USB 2.0, etc.
    Pentium 4 2.4GHz 533FSB (the one I'm using now)
    GeForce 2 GTS Pro video card
    20GB Western Digital harddrive 7200 RPM
    8x4x32 Sony CD-RW
    1 GB of Samsung DDR 3200 (two sticks of 512MB)
    Floppy Drive

    I would take a guess of $300 or so?

    Just did a search on pricewatch, here are all the cheapest prices for my stuff:

    Case: $40
    Mobo: $105
    CPU: $150
    Video card: $50
    Harddrive: $36
    CD-RW: $20
    RAM: $75 per stick -- $150
    Floppy: $10

    That adds up to $561. Of course, all of the components except the case and floppy have been used. So maybe $400-ish?

    If I can come up with $300 to $400, I'll think about buying it. How can I contact you outside of this forum?

    E-mail, AIM, MSN Messenger. I do have to get myself a new CPU first, which shouldn't be a big deal... I'll PM you.

    I think 400 is good for that, it is still a respectable machine.

    Hey watch it!

    I live in Fort Worth and every Sunday we kneel down and give thanks to God for making Arlington as a buffer to keep Dallas further away from us. :p

    I'd price it out as follows:
    Case: $30 (300W is light these days)
    Mobo: $100
    CPU: $150 (Still a prime cpu)
    Video card: $70 (That card is a classic, overclocks nice)
    Harddrive: $20 ($1 a gig is pushing it)
    CD-RW : $10 (new 52x lite-on burners are $20)
    RAM: $60 per stick -- $120 (pirce goes up and down)
    Floppy: $0 (comic relief)
    Total $500

    Problem is u have to deal with the "DUD" guy at Dell who's selling new with warantee and OS for $500-600.

    $400, maybe less unless it includes monitor, keyoard, mouse, speakers etc. like the Dell will.

    You'd get more parting it our than selling as a system.

    That's a steal considering I got $500.00 for an IBM Netvista containing a 1.5 P4 (256 L-2 cache), a Marlin motherboard (never heard of this model before), 128MB RAM (not DDR), generic onboard sound chip, a Nvidia TNT 16MB video card' and a 13" monitor (not a flat screen) just two months ago.;)

    Oh, and Window XP Home factory install.:) :eek:

    Hell, I even threw in some USB 1.1...:cool:

    P. S. SP1 not included!:D

    Snook, you made out like a bandit on that system, someone was either really hard up for a PC, or had no idea what prices were...

    All the same, good job.

    Yeah, it seems all of Fort Worth feels that way, actually I live in Southlake, but if listed that everyone would go, "Where in the hell is that ?"
