Heck don't trow it a way, put it in my trash. lol

There is a folding team here OCN & many other forums, people with less that could use stuff like that.

I sometimes need "say a video card" to make a folding rig complete.
Video card doesn't have to be able to fold, but with it I could fold with the CPU, motherboard & other stuff I have.
I'm sure others would agree and most likely more than willing to pay the shipping to them for something free.

Edit: Same goes to the thread starter or anyone that reads this.

I wish i had some raptor's for my games.

I'd use the M4 for boot, Raptors in RAID 0 for games, and the other HDD's for images/videos/non-critical data

I replaced my Raptor boot drive with an Intel 320 and I just keep it in a safe place with my full install on it for backup. When my 320 got hit with the 8MB bug, the Raptor saved my butt for the week I waited to get a replacement. Just plugged it into my new rig and still had most of my stuff to use.....

All my old crap gathered dust in storage for years, then i made a FULL pickup load trip to the electronic recycling center. Ever since i started working in the "industry" low end stuff seems like trash to me. Although everyone should recycle there parts and never throw them in the trash.
