Is the windows 7 unused?



Its quite the possibility, but i have no experience with ub.

i would have to find out the compatibility with different programs he might frequent
The Windows 7 is used, so I don't think I can sell that.

I forgot to add I'm also selling an 8800GT. (30 bucks).

I could ship or you could pick up, doesn't matter.

Just PM me, I have some experience with Ubuntu. That would free up a good chunk of space for this.

Here's an idea:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-238-_-Product - $105
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-078-_-Product (Intel HD Graphics 2000) - $120
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820231180 - $45
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16811119215 - $70
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817139017 - $45
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-451-_-Product - $40
Total - $425

i would need it to be shipped, does price include shipping? that seems like a pretty good deal for that card.

Also how much for the ram mobo and cpu seperate prices?

does that mobo allow for overclocking?

i would probably get him a mid case instead for better airspace.

The ram, mobo, cpu, and gpu prices are as follows. RAM: 70, CPU: 100, Mobo: 100, and GPU: 30

I can ship all of those for $300 inclusive, $250 without the GPU.

No, but for $400CAD overclocking isn't really possible.
Here's a great case: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16811119215 ($70)
E: Damn, forgot a HDD. See original post.

shucks. i would almost feel bad putting a SB together without any overclocking at all.

There are a few tweaks that i could do to that setup to bring the price down a bit. how much more would it cost to get a mobo with decent OC capabilities.

Well I'm sure you can overclock through the FSB but not through the multiplier. It's not unlocked nor is the mobo P67 so even if it was a -k CPU it wouldn't be supported. Remember, you're saving money with the integrated graphics.

I am piecing together a similar PC for a similar budget and use for my sister. It's possible to do with that budget, including the OS, but there will be no GPU (there will be headroom for one later with the PSU though). Here's what I have.

Case:
Rosewill R101-P-BK MicroATX Mid Tower ($29.99) Out of stock
Rosewill R218-P-BK ATX Mid Tower ($29.99)

PSU:
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W ($39.99)
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D Green 430W ($44.99)

Motherboard and CPU (combo):
AMD Athlon II X2 250 3.0GHz and BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 880G ($100.99)

RAM:
Patriot 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) ($39.99)

Optical Drive:
LITE-ON Black DVD+R 2MB Cache SATA CD/DVD Burner ($19.99)

Operating System:
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit OEM ($99.99)

It comes out to around $330 (~$230 for the PC itself, $100 is just Windows) sans shipping. You can opt for the 430W if you want more headroom for a future GPU, and let's say ~$15-$20 shipping. You have ~$50 for the hard drive which is possible if you get a re-certified or smaller one. You may notice I didn't include one. We don't need one since we're going to re-use her current one.

Sorry if it's not Canadian, and sorry about the case being out of stock for about a month (she probably won't be buying hers until around then), but maybe it helps. You should be able to find the the same or very similar parts on the Canadian one. It's possible even with the operating system, and if you can re-use a disk drive or something, that helps too.

Edit: I posted up another case for the same price since the original is out of stock.
