    Leonardo I got some AGP Cards (all 256MB):

    -eVGA nVidia GeForce FX 5500
    -ATI Radeon 9550 (hardcore gamers stay away from this card)
    -PowerColor ATi Radeon 9250
    -PowerColor ATi Radeon 9600 Pro

    Electrolyte I might have a CD-R/RW somewhere, but I gotta go look first and i'll get back to you.

    Anyone here got a mobo that supports socket 478?

    Always get a couple of floppy drives for spare- they are invaluable for small files and won't be around much longer.

    How are ATI drivers nowadays? Might get a 9600Pro or the GForce 5600 elsewhere and someday a TV-Out Voodoo 5 5500.

    An LG 48X CD drive is great- the 52Xs go too fast and can be a hazard. My five-year-old LG CD burner is still great, but i have to optimize the drivers and cable-slaving and up my power supply.

    Sorry for double post but I have an ATI X850XT PE AGP spare if anyone wants it. There's only one problem with it, sometimes (rarely) on bootup the screen will be garbled and will continue to stay at it even in Windows. Simply rebooting the system fixes it.

    If someone wants this, you're going to have to give me a damn good reason to send it (you'll have to pay shipping too).

    How much would the shipping be for the FX 5500? DNB I'm checking now for the Mainboard as well. I *will* PM as soon as I get nibble from sources.

    I wouldn't mind the 9600. I may also have a 478 Mobo spare when i upgrade depending if I have to give it to my brother or something.

    I have a 300w PSU somewhere if anyone wants it.

    *thinks of damn good reason*

    My brother really wants to have a computer capable of running newer games including UT2007 when it comes out and would really appreciate this.

    *sadly not a great reason, but there we go...*




    What make is it?

    Ok. I might have to change the cooling on the card, though. I also now have a spare X1300 AGP. Just found out those series of cards dont work on Dell comps.

    EDIT::

    Yea I definately have to change the cooling on it. Anyone here got RDRAM (perferabally modules that are 256+)?

    Looks like I have an Aero Lite Heatsink & Fan for a 3.2Ghz Socket 478 P4 going spare as my upgrade is taking me to a 3.8Ghz 775 P4. So anyone wants it they are welcome. Just cost of postage to cover :D

    Sorry for the double post, but asking if anyone has a CRT or LCD monitor not in use. Starting to see weird splotches on mine, but it is 8 years old so maybe its time. Preferably 19 inches, and I do not need a widescreen. Willing to handle the shipping.

    I have a 21" Dell Trinitron that I haven't used in a while, but I'm not sure if I can part with it, so I'll contact you later if I have an offer.

    Thanks for the offer. I might prefer LCD, but at the moment I will take anything.

    Anyone here willing to take a defective 80gig PS3...wont start up here. I emailed Sony, only thing is the console itself (where the warranty sticker is) looks like someone opened it before I got it.

    Anyone know what to do with a 600 mHz Celeron PC? I have an old eMachine I'm looking to ditch. Came with Windows ME, and the Live CD for Ubuntu 8.10 ran fine so I assume it'll work with that distro. System has been upgraded to 192 MB RAM with an 80 GB IDE HDD.

    I'll gladly hand it off to someone living in the greater Boston area, or if anyone knows if places like Goodwill take PC components, I'd be more than willing to let them deal with it.

    I've also got a Hercules GeForce 2 Ti AGP card I'm looking to get rid of and maybe some other random hardware that's been sitting around doing nothing.
