Default Well...

I have sold my AMD Atlhon 1000MHZ PC for $50 (Yeah, I shouldn't have mentioned that I found it in garbage). Well, her PC that I had to check for the webcam troubles came from missing memory (at first thinking)

So I open it up, just to find the source of the bad smelling: Two capacitors were about to blow. So, I have been forcibly to stop all operations on the machine and leave it as dead. She will buy another S370 board for it and, if I am lucky, I will get the old one and try to repair it. Then, I will buy the stuff for it.

But, a 1GHZ CPU, 320MB PC-133, 10GB HDD, Burner, FDD, Nvidia Geforce 2 MX 400, some network card and a sound card (CMI8738)
Why $50? Why did I open my big mouth? I could have obtained $125 from it.

Ouch man, and thats in CDN too right?

I payed 59.99 for a PIII 667 based system with 128 meg SD ram with a 20 gig HD, CD, Savage4 card (Better than your graphics), intergrated sound and a kickbutt (Apparently my language isnt liked) intel network card.

+ the deal I got was a steal of a price, hence why I got two

I should have first launched my $125, but I refrained for some reason...GRR!

Oh well, she self-ripped off because I didn't pay ANYTHING on it.
