thoughts? feedback ?
1- looks really good , good price

2 - id try to get $250, lil faster that one has 3 times as much ram plus a 40 gb hd

3- is a really good deal

4- not sure never bought a dual , ive seen a few and it looks like a good deal

- my friend before he went to prison , build and sold 90Mhz to 200Mhz systems for like $200 to $300. this was close to yr ago
^^^ sounds good - i figured originally same price for the first 2 because you get a 2x DVD burner - but i guess the more ram and speed would make up for that and more - and true that people here likely wont have much use for the DVD burning part.

thnx for the feedback - anyone else...

lucky friends!! people in costa rica tend to be behind on the times so a PIII i am SURE is more then enough for more.

the dual or the p 2.4 i may sell to a DJ friend who is stuck with a 1g celeron system he uses for dj'n!!!
Ya with 256 more that will run you about $50 a stick , cheap 40gb hard drive run ya $51 , and with 200Mhz faster CPU. those are prices from the states off newegg

id send you a link to my local store. see some of there prices but they changed there site and no longer have prices on it. there used desktops start at $89 thats a 100Mhz system to. im trying to think a 500Mhz system there will run ya close to $300 to $400. there insane prices there. 80mm black case fan $20. but the pertty much the only computer store here , there are a few small ones here and best buys just moved in a few months ago.

that gives you alil input , hope someone else will have some input for ya.

Take Care Mr G.
soudns good - and since this is costa rica i should eb able to get a little more.

It is too not so much i want SO much for them - i realyl do want to get them off my hands - they are cluttering up my room..lol

i am hopnig my work will buy maybe 2 of them, that would be nice, but we shall see!

sold the p4 2.4 system for $450 - one down - 3 to go and 2 more getting ready!
Sweet , thats a nice system there. 2.4Ghz is still fast. you can get by with a 1Ghz still today.
