EDIT 8/4/11: I have added a few more builds in my most recent post. :grinthumb Actually, two computers, plural. Tell me, citizens of the mighty TechSpot: What do you think of these custom-built computers? ___________The first machine (Basically USED):___________ FIRST IMAGE [MSI] * White Mid-Sized Tower Case w/View Pane * 450W Power Supply * Cold Blue Cathode Light Strip * MSI MS-7142 Motherboard * BRAND NEW AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.2GHz Socket 754 512KB Cache Processor * RADEON 9200 128MB PCI Video Card * Rocketfish 5.1 PCI Sound Card * FireWire 1394 PCI Net Adapter * Realtek RTL8180 Wireless Mini LAN PCI Adapter * 1GB DDR RAM (2 x 2 512MB) * 120GB Hard Drive * DVD+RW * CD-RW * CD-ROM -----Problems it has:----- -Two of six USB ports are not physically functional. -Wireless Adapter does not include antennae for extra range -Legacy support is not functional. (Both PS/2 ports physically do not work.) ....... ___________The second machine (Brand NEW):___________ SECOND IMAGE [ASRock] * Black Steel Area 51 ATX Mid Tower * 480W Power Supply * x2 120mm Blue LED Fans * x2 80mm Blue LED Fans * 2m Sleeved Blue LEDs * ASRock N68C-S UCC Socket AM3 Motherboard * AMD Athlon II x3 450 Rana 3.2GHz Triple-Core Processor * Radeon HD 6570 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card * Rocketfish 7.1-Channel PCI Sound Card * 802.11g Ultra Long Range 108Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter * G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1333 SDRAM * Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s Hard Drive * x2 ASUS Black SATA 24x DVD Burners * Rosewill 40-in-1 USB 2.0 Card Reader * Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR Dongle USB 2.0 -----Problems it has:----- -MB does not support 6GB/s SATA / 6GB/s SATA HDD isn't fully utilized by MB -WiFi card does not support higher speeds for gaming, etc -Lacks USB 3.0 support ....... Assuming several factors: What are they worth? What are they good for? What are they bad for? What are they ugly for? What would you do with them if you had them? How much would you sell them for if you had built them? How much would you buy them for assuming they were already assembled, tested, and ready to go? How much would you add to their value for an OS like Winsows XP 32-bit, 64-bit, or another OS entirely? Have fun with me if you like. Release the TECHSPOT HOUNDS OF HELL! I don't mind the people on here criticizing constructively, or even having a laugh at my expense. Keep it funny. Thanks guys.
