    Anyone think that there would be a willing market for this? If I can't get my pc working I'm tempted to buy a fucking ps3 and a shitty laptop.

    It would be like selling a child:wtc:

    With a ton of games new old etc. I'm thinking that someone just getting a gaming pc might be down.

    That's actually a decent idea, and would probably be easy enough to do via Craigslist or something.

    Though you sure 3 years from now when you buy a new awesome PC you aren't going to want to play the games?

    I bought one a long time ago from an OTer. Forgot the username and password and was screwed though, because it was linked to his email. :hs:

    I know I will regret it, but shit I need to play less games anyways and I feel like keeping my gaming vs. work / school separate will help. Maybe I'll get something done for a change. If I have to deal with another technology related issue I'm going to live in a tent, I'm sick of this shit running my life... It's kind of crazy thinking how much something as small as losing a cell phone / an exploded pc can mess things up.

    Just do a full operating system reinstall, it will take a bit more to get everything how you want it but it will run better in the end.

    You'll never be able to get a good price for it.

    Tis' my second account that I made in '04

    If I do sell it, it kind of depends on the offer / what I decide I want to do with my comp

    Wish I never reset my TF2 stats : /

    I wish it was as easy to rent/trade/sell PC games as console games. If you could get rid of shitty games and pick up good games on the cheap like you could console games, there wouldn't be nearly as much piracy.

    It's too bad you can't sell specific steam games.

    Yeah, you won't get nearly what you paid for, or even what you would if you had hard copies of those games to sell.
