NAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
I got the whole shabang and a mint Nokia 19inWS, speakers printer, burner, floppy, and OS for $400 searching the classifieds and sales and little old fashioned strong arming but hey.

id say 300 would have been much nicer and on point.

I will try and ask for 300 but I dont think he will agree. I can get all of those parts without the geforce2 for 347 from newegg.com.

But he did use these parts for less then a month and he did do the vdd mod on the epox.

I will try asking, if he wont agree I will buy the epox 8RGA+ and use the onboard video for now.

I just found out that he did the vdd mod on the 8RDA+ and even though that is a good thing. The bad is that the motherboard has no warrenty now. So he agreed to lower the price to 310 shipped.

Or I can get this following setup from newegg.com for 316

2 sticks of 256 XMS PC2700
1700XP OEM
8RDA+
Radeon 8500LE 128MB

and again this is my friends computer for sale

8RDA+ (vdd modded)
2100XP
2 sticks of 512 XMS PC2700
Geforce2 Ti200

what do u guys think?'

one other question
Will a stock AMD heatsink from a 1800XP Pali work with a 1700XP Tbred?

I thought Geforce 2's were just the Geforce 2 Ultra and/or GTS, and MX... I thought just the Geforce 3 had Ti200 - Ti500. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

I'd buy the new stuff only if the 1700+ was a sure TB-B, so then you could easily hit 1.9 - 2.0 GHz. And I'm pretty sure the stock heatsink from the Pali would work... May not cool great, but it should work.
