I've had 3 brand new 1.5t seagates fail within 2 hours after install and all in 15 minutes of each other on my media server. Since it was within 30 days of the purchase newegg not only refunded me but also let me choose a different brand.

"and the old case is a dell dimensions 3000 only thing in it worth taking is a 9800
"

Well if you cant use the internet then i think the best you can hope for in that price range is him dropping the price. Everything i listed from newegg comes with a warranty( +will ship free most likely if you sign up for shoprunner) and if you shop right will cost only 100$ + screen and will most likely be an upgrade over the c2d (A4) http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+A4-3400+APU cdc@2.13ghz http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core2+Duo+P7450+%40+2.13GHz Also the graphics on that thing are probably horrid and while the a4's are acceptable. If your dead set on the c2d rig then dont pay more than 50-60 like "pioneerisloud" or just offer 30 for the moniter.

100 will get you an old DELL/HP Xp box off Craigslist if you look. I have 3 or 4 old Dells in my closet that I got for less than 50 each. If that is the ONLY option then get the C2Duo and install a cut down version of XP Pro on it so the 1 Gb Ram isn't rendered useless. I highly suggest Tiny Xp as it pulls less than 256 Mb ram. You can switch the Microsoft keys back to the original to stay within legal use of Xp that way. I have Tiny Xp Beast Edition on my old Dell's and they all run great on less than 1 gb ram and they all run old Nvidea 64 Mb vid cards.I have one of them in my little girl's room hooked up to an old 36 inch Sony CRT TV via S video and she watches Netflix on it! The Dell drivers will need to be installed most likely, though. They are more than enough to watch 720 movies and stream video from Netflix and youtube.

Unless you get the CPU for free it is hardly worth upgrading the cpu. The OEM mobo might not even support that, anyways. another stick of 1 Gb Ram would the better investment IMHO...
