    [WTB/WTT] PC Hardware - Circa LGA775

    *Mods Please lock*


    I am after some older hardware for a HTPC build I am embarking on.

    Specifically after -

    Motherboard (micro ATX of the 775 era or AMD equivalent)

    CPU - Core 2 Duo or may even consider a Pentium D dual core / AMD dual core if have the board to suit.

    RAM - DDR2 or DDR3 x 4GB to suit above motherboard. (2GB would be fine also, but obviously, the more the better)

    400W+ PSU

    A low end GPU, preferably a silent 512MB - 1GB model

    A Wireless card or dongle, preferably up to 300mb/s rated, but 150mb/s would be fine, prefer PCI card to dongle.

    A HTPC case or a smallish sleek looking tower/flat top ATX case.

    Maybe an optical drive too

    Ofcourse I can source all these items second hand on eBay, but I would love to find someone on here that has what I want/need and is willing to trade vaping gear for it. Happy to pay cash if preffered, check out my FS/FT threads for items to trade + I have another couple of items I would add to the pile also.

    Cheers in advance and thanks for looking!!

    Hey hey hey

    I may be able to help with some / most of this I'm sure there is a motherboard/CPU/ram/psu/gpu & optical drive somewhere down In the shed.

    How soon do you need it ?

    Cheers

    Cool man, I am particularly after a mobo/cpu/ram/psu - are you offering just the mobo and cpu ? or other gear also ? let me know what you have and what you want for it price wise and I will see what Conner has on offer and go from there.!

    cheers!

    I've got mobo, cpu, ram, 2x 8800gtx sitting in boxes (used, but not used lately)

    And I've also got another complete computer which has similar specs that's not being used anymore.

    When I get home I can list all the specifications...

    What are you considering trading? Or what's your budget?

    Ok, sweet, well its to go in a HTPC, so I really dont need anything flash - I might grab a $50 silent card from PCcasgear if I cant find a cheaper secondhand one, although the paired 8800GTX's are a great SLi setup, its just not what I am in need of right now.

    Reasonably small(ish) budget, I will probably spend more on the case than anything else (a HTPC case from PCcasegear) so just really after a board/cpu/ram/psu - the rest I will buy new, other items I could need would be a PCI wifi card + an optical drive.

    Something of the 775 era (AMD setup would be fine also) around 2GHz Dual core CPU with 4GB ram and a 400W+ PSU.

    I have a few things in these threads ( Here , here , here and here ) for trade, or I can add cash to a trade, or I can pay cash out right. Depends on the gear as to what I would be willing to offer,... dont really wanna spend anymore than $100, as I could get a brand new low end setup (just the CPU/RAM/Mobo) that would do the job for around $150.....

    EDIT; I mentioned above I might have a couple of other items I could trade, they are an RSST + Smok Magneto + Juice + a home made, somewhat crude but effective DNA20D box mod.

    Ok here's the board I've got sitting on it's own:
    Mobo: ASUS P5N32-E SLI (ATX form factor NOT micro)
    RAM: 8G KINGSTON KVR800D2N6K2/4G (4 STICKS OF 2)
    CPU: INTEL E6850 CORE 2 DUO (OVERCLOCKED, can't remember the clock but you can set it back to default if you like)
    GPU's: 8800GTX x2 768mb VRAM from gainward IIRC (You probably don't want them just for media play back as you said)


    Now the second PC I have is almost the same specs but I bought it from a mate when he moved house and I don't have it setup at the moment so I I'm unsure of exact parts.
    It's a complete working PC with one 8800GT (or GTX?) and I think it's got 4G of RAM. It's in a freakin huge case it's a "thermaltake armor".
    I'd remove the all hard drives if I sold it to you as I've got a load of media and personal stuff on there.


    SO neither of these is Micro-ATX but if they interest you let me know.
    I probably wouldn't separate the parts as they have little value to me or resale value in pieces.

    i bought this case not long ago.
    Yet to put anything in it.
    But it runs a full size psu and graphics card.
    Waiting to become my next rig.

    .
    hehe, I used to own the exact same board many moons ago.
    Sounds good, but its a pity you dont want to separate, I would be a player on the CPU + RAM (2 x 2GB modules or 4 x 1GB modules would actually suit me WAY better, as I have access to a board locally that only supports upto 4GB ), as the board is just way to big for what I want to do with it... :/ But all is good! Tanks for the offers!

    I would very much love to be able to afford to go MINI ITX, but its not a project I want to sink all new gear (cash wise) into right now.
