Computer parts for sale

As part of the moving process, I'm trying to get rid of old stuff that we don't need any more. This includes all the components of two old PCs. Everything listed here works fine. I'm willing to part with it for cheap. Make an offer if you want anything!

  • Two (2) ASUS A7N8X-X nVidia nForce2 motherboards

  • Two (2) AMD Athlon 1.833 GHz CPUs

  • Two (2) Creative Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 sound cards (PCI)

  • One (1) nVidia GeForce Ti 4200 64mb AGP video card (DVI out, S-video out, VGA out)

  • One (1) ATI Radeon Rage Theatre 32mb AGP video card (DVI out, S-video in & out, coax in)

  • Two (2) POWMAX ATX Midtower cases with 400W power supply

  • One (1) 45GB Western Digital Corsair IDE hard drive (11 Sep 2000)

  • One (1) 80GB Western Digital Caviar IDE hard drive (15 Aug 2002)

  • One (1) 100GB Western Digital Caviar IDE hard drive (23 Dec 2001)

  • One (1) 160GB Western Digital Caviar IDE hard drive (22 Nov 2002)

  • One (1) Promise Ultra TX2 dual IDE controller card (PCI)

  • Two (2) Gateway FPD1500 15" DVI-only LCD monitors

All these parts work together well, and Ubuntu recognizes all of the hardware quite well. The video cards both have DVI out, so the monitors work with them. If you buy a hard drive, I'll throw in an IDE cable unless you tell me not to.

When I say cheap, I mean it. This is more about getting rid of stuff I don't need than making money.

This might be somewhat of a loaded question, but Dan's laptop finally succumbed to the 30 or so viruses that had been hiding on it for the last four years and I have already started looking at new/refurbished computers. Would you recommend creating one/having someone create one for me.. or going with something like a Mac mini? Or purchasing all your computer parts listed above and building a robot?! :)

Sorry I'm so slow about getting back to you.

Building a computer from parts is an educational experience, but unless you're really jonesing for an education in tech support, it's probably not worth it. :) At this point, my time is worth more to me than the savings I'd get from building a system from scratch, so I'm willing to pay a little more for a prebuilt system that is reliable and comes with a decent warranty! But if you want to save money, you can almost always get the parts you need pretty cheap if you spend some time shopping around.

Would one of the monitors & the 45 GB drive be anything I'd be interested in? Because I'm interested in them, but I have no idea if I can install them or not. And I'm willing to *buy* them, too, not just little-brother-bargain for them.

Re: computer parts
Does your video card have DVI out? It's a funky rectangular white outlet... lemme find an image. Here: http://www.driverheaven.net/reviews/AX800XT/DSCF0961.JPG

If not, you would need a new video card to be able to use one of the monitors.

I'll bring the 45gb hd when I come home, and we can get it in your box.
