Default Scoooore!

I Just score a computer from a friend for $20!

Specs:

AMD Athlon 2400+ XP
256mb RAM
MSI K7N2 Mobo
GeForce2 64mb
Some misc fans,a misc PSU and a case speaker.

But on thing i noticed when i got home:



(Graphics card was taken out temp)



LOL! The fan on the CPU Is the same size as the CPU,And whats with the Chipset cooling?!?!/



Well,For $20 you cant complain,all i need to do is add a hardrive or two,some DVD Burners and fix up the cooling and i have a perfect Torrent/Converting box

Edit; I Just Realised it has an XP Pro COA on it!

Put a big hard drive in it, throw in the corner, you just got yourself a sub-$100 file server.

No,This one is actually hooked up to the Sound card and acts as standard speakers,just mountable in a 5.25" Bay
