been looking to build a dual xp box for folding and found this, i can probably sell some of the stuff i don't need to recoop some money............


" Dual AMD Athlon MP 2400's (2ghz)
2 Vantec AeroFlow VA4-C7040's
MSI K7D Master-L Mobo with Onboard LAN
FIC Radeon 9700 Pro A97P
2 512MB PC2700 DDR (1 Corsair XMS and 1 OCZ) runs very stable in first 2 dimm slots.
1 WD Raptor SATA 36gb HD (5yr warranty) on 66mhz Sil3112A PCI Card
1 80gb IBM Deskstar 7200rpm HD
1 Samsung CDRW/DVD Combo Drive Beige.
1 3.5 Floppy
1 Creative SB Audigy OEM
1 Antec True 430W PS
1 CoolerMaster ATC-201-SX Silver
1 Retail Copy of Windows XP Pro (Key never activated but box was opened)***

Looking for $1,100 for that system. Used it for about 2 months as a DV/Encoding machine. Everything in there is < 4 months old except the memory. "

OOOOO uncle mark, you gettin dat for meeeee? :D

A few questions tho:

1) if you're gettin this for folding, why are you gonna waste a 9700 pro on it?

2) why are you gonna waste a CDRW/DVD rom on it?

3) why an audigy?

Think about it. For gaming, a dually sux big time. It's only good for Folding, Video editing and other apps, so why are you gonna waste all this hardware on a machine that's just gonna fold?

Dually's do not suck for gaming, however half of their resources are wasted (as in just one chip is typically available). In this case, he will still have a 2400+ with a 9700 for game play. That is not too shabby.

The price seems ok.

shant,

this is a used system i found on the [H] forums, all i want is the mobo and cpu's, but he doesn't want to split it up, so maybe i can sell the stuff i do not need.

any tips on how NOT to get burned on the sale ???? might offer him something less than the $1100 he is asking.
