  1. Hi, just like evryone else, I need money. Can anyone tell me some rigs that I could completly build then sell on ebay and make money on?? I mean like cheap, only costing me around 200-300$ and hopefully making mabie 50-100$ profit. But please keep in mind that that budget would have to include the OS too. thanks alot -Nick

    It would be difficult to build a pc for $200-300 that is a reasonably good system.

    Here's a pretty cheap rig that still is ok.

    Gigabyte 754 mobo + amd 754 a64 3400+ combo $99

    Generic 512mb pc3200 ram $41

    Rosewill Case/Psu combo $30
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811147010

    WD 40GB SATA Hd $42

    Lite On DVD ROM $17

    Xp Home Oem sp2 $81

    Masscool Amd cpu cooler $8

    Should be around $320 w/ shipping, depending on the shipping address.

    Edit: you'll also need a case fan(or two).

    You probably could make some money doing it if you can make a nice ebay page to sell from. You can't make too much profit on a system of this price though.
