    Well I had that idea too....but it involved a warehouse, a couple T3s and a rent per hour type system so you could play games on the network.

    Yeah, If someone was giving me a videocard for free that was worth $100, I would feel obligated to pay shipping, I mean... they're already being generous by giving you the hardware.

    Well actually I emant other people installing illegal things on my computers while they were renting them. I'm thinking having a main ghost backup and have them all do a restore every night.

    Does anyone have some PC2100/1600 184-pin DIMM DDR? I'm upgrading my mobo and CPU, but can't afoord 256 or 512 MB of DDR on top of that. Send me a PM if you have any, I rarely check the hardware board. I have a 32MB GeForce2 MX/MX 400 that I'd be willing to give away if I can't sell it.

    Isn't IOMEGA still replacing drives with the click of death? I think they made a statement that they would replace ALL drives found with it.

    I posted the following at the amdmb forum in the Memory section about 3 weeks ago:

    "Anyone living in the Tampa Bay area in Florida or willing to pick it up at my office (near Fowler Ave. and I-75), I have 256MB of Crucial PC2100 ECC/registered DDR RAM. It's one stick of CL2.5 and was only used for about 6 months. It has an "M" symbol on it that could be Micron, but I bought it from newegg and we all know Micron and Crucial are one now anyway (sort of I think). Even though it worked in my system and they say not to use ECC RAM in my motherboard, I eventually switched to a 512 stick and had no use for the 256 stick.

    Since it's been out of my system for almost a year, I'm just giving it away. I don't want to take the time or go out of my way to mail it though, so it's a pickup only.

    Here's all the numbers on the RAM sticker:

    MT18VDDT3272DG-265A1 PC2100R-25330-A1
    US BZAB92P005 200136
    256MB, DDR, 266MHz, CL2.5, ECC"

    I'm not sure how many BuFers live or can get to the Tampa Bay area, but if you know anyone else then tell them about this thread. Also, my e-mail is skaarjmaster@planetunreal.com I usually give my old hardware to my Mom, but she can't use this one.

    Wow!

    I love people who are techie freaks and upgrade like twice a year. Because of them its possible to buy things that are nearly new paying much less.

    I've got a couple new items.

    First, an old GeForce 3 64Mb DDR from MSI. This is a first run GeForce 3 before all that Ti 200/500 business.

    Secondly, I have some Creative Inspire 5300 speakers. They are 5.1 and I will include 2 floor stands for the rear satellites.

    As always, PM for details.

    I really need to check this more often.

    [UM]theswarm, if you still need that RAM I can send it to you for the price of shipping. I won't know what it is until I go down to the UPS store and check it out though. I'm sure it can't be much for one small stick of RAM. E-mail me at skaarjmaster@planetunreal.com and we'll figure it out.

    Also, I may have some parts early to mid 2004 after I upgrade my Mom's computer and here's what they might be at that time:

    1. P3-500 CPU/Coolermaster HS-fan/256MB PC100 SDRAM (2-128 sticks, no idea what brand but I may be able to give you all the codes on the sticks once removed); this will not be taken apart unless requested.

    2. ATI Rage Fury 32MB video card

    3. Allied 300W power supply

    4. Memorex 2X CD burner

    If I didn't give specs, then I don't know them right now. See ya in a few months.
