  1. Hope this is the right place for this.

    I was offered a good deal on a friends old computer, as he is getting enough money to build an entirely new system from the ground up, and offered it to me at what seems like a good price.

    The specs:

    1080 Antec black tower case
    430 watt power supply
    80 gig harddrive
    memorex dvd rom/ cd writer
    built in fan w/ front control knob
    Epox 8hka+ mobo
    gforce 4 ti 4200
    amd athlon xp 2100
    thermax volcanoe heatsink
    17 inch black crt
    mouse, keyboard, nic
    Ram, not sure, either 128 or 512 (DDR from Crucial)
    OS is going to be Linux (several distros, and yes, I am using linux now)

    Price: $550

    I plan on going over to his house and making sure everything works, but I do trust him. Still, it does seem a rather low price.

    The computer I am on now is a stoned emachines, a bloody warrenty replacement computer! :hotbounce

    Sounds like a damn good deal to me...test it out at his house, and bring the money with you...best of luck.
