    [it's worth]

    [​IMG]

    athlon xp 3200+
    2gb patriot pc3200
    evga 6800gt 256mb (agp card, note this a gt card, not an xt)
    wd 80gb 7200rpm hdd w/ 8mb cache
    epox ex5 case <-- link to epox website for details, includes on-board sound, firewire, usb, ethernet and psu with some other cool features
    dvd dl burner w/ lightscribe
    card reader
    vista basic

    if sold locally will come with 19" crt monitor, keyboard and mouse, no speakers.

    case is approximately the size of a shoebox :bigthumb:

    did i leave anything out?

    this is not my main rig, the woman uses it upstairs. just seeing if it's worth selling to replace with a (relatively inexpensive) laptop for her.

    thought are appreciated, thanks :wavey:

    Save it, and plug in two 750GB drives, set up a RAID 1, and use it as a media server. If you simply must make some money, you can sell the video card, the FLASH reader, and the DVD burner.

    good idea but i already have a htpc :)

    i am sure i can part it out for more than selling it whole. unfortunately parting may be the way to go :hs:

    oic :o i politely disagree, mebbe as a system but overall the components... ebay or a tech forum is an easy $400+ individually. i can't see it being even that low as a whole system tho :hs: have anything to compare it too?

    hell, this system will blow away damn near everything here, if not everything, athlon64 or not :hs: ebay link

    Overall components are always worth more than built systems.


    you must be smoking some great crack.... There is no way.

    alright, mebbe "blow them away" is a bit much :mamoru: but i do think overall my system is superior in one way or another to some, mebbe most of those.

    granted, the fsb of the am2/s939 and even the s754 is superior. otherwise, the details on my system, including the amount of memory, dvd dl burner, case and video card are superior :o

    i'd like to bench mine against them, specifically for gaming :hs: i'm sure some would win but i'm willing to bet this little system holds it's own.

    mebbe i'll bench it against my main rig :mamoru:

    You know, maybe I should buy that workstation to use at my office. This dual-Xeon machine simply refuses to run as fast as its spec implies it should.
