Hey all

friend is selling a used system - needs the $$

for $450 US he is:
MSI mobo - can't recall the name but a good one.
XP1700
512pc2100
80g HD
ti4200
17" monitor
speakers (2) with woofer
56k modem
nic


i had formated this system for him a while back and it is in good condition.

thoughts? $450 a steal or a rip off?


system has been in use for like a year - mainly just got playing games.

depends on who he sells it to. to the average joe its a pretty good deal. but for geeks like us its a bit expensive

ITS NOT BAD ACTUALLY. THE 4200 TI, monitor and 80 gig HDD save the deal. find out what kind of hardrive it is, I would want at least a 7200 rpm drive.

also post what kind of motherboard it is if you can.

good deal if you ask me... Think about it.
mobo-50
cpu-50
hdd-50
gcard-75
monitor-100
ram-50
nic and modem-25...
these prices are very conservative. I say go for it, and sell some of the parts. Is the 1700+ a pally?

I know - it only has a max 150FSb - that is why i had gone out and bought a Abit BH7 - that is why i figure just get a 2.8 for it or something and get that extra 17mhz FSB out of it.
