View Full Version : Super System Sale

5th October 2002, 05:48 PM
Well... maybe it's not quite a giveaway, but the following systems have to go to the best offer. Any offer considered. Some of you might recognise this as stuff I failed to shift in the past. I definitely want to be rid of this stuff at any cost this time.

This is not an auction, the highest offer doesn't necessarily "win" ("best" not equal to "highest") Even if you make an offer which is accepted, you can still change your mind although I'd prefer it if you don't do that ;). I don't know of any easy way to shift this lot so it will be COLLECTION ONLY. Well, I may be able to deliver within about 1 hours drive around Swindon which can be discussed as necessary. These are all boxes which can be plugged in and used once you stick your prefered OS on it. All is in good working order with no known problems unless mentioned below. I'll do some pictures later.

I'd strongly prefer not to split the systems, but would consider it for box #1 only if there is a lack of interest. I'll leave this thread open for the next week or so. If you have any questions or want further info then let me know.

Sorry for the low quality pics, my camera sucks :(

Dell box



Note the cards shown installed do not match that of the proposed sale. The form factor appears to be ATX but I've not checked with another mobo.

Damn. Why do you have to live Across The Pond .....

I want that Cube Case!

Too bad shipping and taxes would make it too expensive for shipping.

Yup, it's a nice case which is why I gave Stevieboy too much money for it in the first place. But I've had it probably a year now and still not done anything with it, nor likely to in the future hence I want to let it go to another good home.

Best offers received so far [7 Oct]:
System #1: 100 pounds
System #2: nothing
System #3: nothing
System #4: nothing

I'll edit this as and when it changes.

just wondering how much you would want for the duallie ppro unit, even without the guts if you could flog that separately (pain i know, cos it's a FULL size mobo)

Should be getting my loan cheque through some time this decade, so i'll have some funds then. Got my van, so i'll be able to pickup.

Taxes = 0 if under 175 UK. Mackerel, what does it weigh - I can work out shipping (albeit 12 day delivery, but cheap) and see if it is prohibitive...

It's a cube case... *Yay* and if shipping's cheap, it may be worth grabbing...

Just a thought.

G* :borg:

Canadian Taxes kick in as soon as it hits the Border. 7% of the declared price. for GST (Go**amn Stupid Tax)

That Cube Case would make a perfect Addition to the Hive Mind.

Sometimes I wish I live in England. I would realy like that Dell for my wife, but shipping would kill me. :)
