So this guy is offering me a second hand pc
2500 xp chip out of a laptop and its over clocked to a 3200 xp it can overclock much further he said, not tryed to the limit.
XP 3200+, 160 gig Hard drive,1024 Megabytes,DDR Dualchannel ram,16 X Dual layer DVD-+ RW,Radeon 9700 pro,128 MB Graphics card Extreme edition,sound blaster audigy sound card 5.1 surround sound,17" Compaq CRT monitor,Keyboard and Optical mouse. Windows XP and lots of other software installed. Bargain PC for multi task or gaming.
heres what he had to say
its a gigabyte ga 7n400 lan and theres 1 gig of ram 4 x 256mb sticks running in dual channel mode...so equivalent to 2 gig.
for that value is it worth it? it was built a year ago so i was told.
so how many years in the running will this machine last me. i don't know much about this mobo but say if i wanted to add extra stuff do you think it would be possible to detach those components and reattach them onto a new motherboard?
or i might decide to get this one brand new all built up and add a few things
