Appraisal: Secondary folding rig

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Computer:

3 years old, has no problems running older games. Can even run CSS respectably on decent settings at a 20-30FPS (was enough for me!) It can also run FEAR with around a 20-30FPS, on 640x480. Somehow I managed to play at 1024x768 with medium effects detail at the same FPS, but I can't do that anymore.

Anyway, the basic rundown is..

Intel Pentium 4 1.6GHz Willamette core (S478)

Had this running at 1.97GHz stably, couldn't POST at anything higher. Had to remove overclock due to no PCI/AGP/IDE lock on motherboard. Excellent temps with good airflow. I'm on stock cooling with AS5 and pretty much idle, the temp is 28®C. Prime95 load rarely touches 40®C.

-100MHz FSB
-128kb L2 Cache

Octek Rhino P4M266-M4P motherboard (S478)

The only problem I have with this motherboard is the fact that there are no voltage change options in the BIOS, nor are there any AGP/PCI/IDE locks. Other than that, it works great.


-100-132 FSB range
-2 DIMMs
-1 AGP 4x
-2 PCI
-1 CNR (Small slot, not sure what it's for, or even if it is CNR. Thats what it says in everest )
-VIA chipset
-2 USB, PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard support.
-No onboard LAN but will throw in a basic NIC card if required

768MB unbranded PC133 RAM (2.5-3-3-7)

Never had any problems with this RAM at all. Excellent stuff, can run at 2-3-3-6 without a problem.

-1x256MB
-1x512MB

Asus nVidia GeForce FX5200 with passive heatsink

This graphics card is actually quite good to say it only cost £70 new a couple years back. No problems running older games and newer games run fairly well on low-medium settings. Can play AOE3, FEAR, CS:S among other titles.

-128mb DDR ram
-AGP 4x
-Core Clock: 250MHz
-Memory Clock: 331MHz effective
-4 Pixel Pipelines
-2 Vertex Shaders (2.0)
-1 Pixel Shader (2.0)

Ok so that's pretty much the main spec of the computer. I'm willing to part it all out and ship it individually. I don't know if I'll ship to the States, because that generally means a lot more hassle on my part! But if you really want it, then I'll look into it.

If I'm selling, I'll be selling nearer Christmas time to get some extra cash for me C2D rig.

Just looking for a few ideas on what price it could go for.

Thanks

My estimation of value would be:

Intel Pentium 4 1.6GHz Willamette core (S478) ------- £18.00 to £22.00
Octek Rhino P4M266-M4P motherboard (S478) ------- £14.00 to £18.00
768MB unbranded PC133 RAM (2.5-3-3-7) ----------- £25.00 to £35.00
Asus nVidia GeForce FX5200 with passive heatsink --- £15.00 to £19.00

If sold individually, you're looking at a total of £72.00 to £94.00. If sold as
a whole PC, maybe £105 to £130 without monitor, £125 to £150 with a good
monitor. With a legitimate copy of Windows (with COA) you could push
that up to, maybe, £150 to £170 as a whole machine, to the right person.

Highly-Annoyed
