New kid on the block

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just thought I'd share my most recent build with everyone. I know it is Intel, but it won't be my primary rig, so whatever.
Specs are:
Intel 3.0GHz P4 HyperThreading
Intel D865PERL motherboard (not a good overclocker, I know)
512MB DDR333 Kingston ValueRAM
nVidia GeForce2 (I think, I'll have to check that) 64MB VRAM AGP
Seagate 40GB IDE
Star Logic 350w PSU
Belkin NIC

Not great stuff, but cost me a grand total of...........
$20! (really only $10, but I had a $10 NIC sitting around that I put in)

I have the whole story in another thread, but here is the basic idea.
CompUSA is cutting back on locations, and one near me went out of business. I went, and they were selling everything dirt cheap. This little puppy was sitting in a pile of other used machines, and looked in pretty bad shape. The case was missing it's front, and side covers, and it was a little scuffed up. Anyway, I ask the manager if he will part out the machines, he says no, and I offer him $10 for this one. I get it home and start stripping it. Lo and behold, even though it says 2.0GHz Celeron on the sticker, I find a 3GHz P4 under the heatsink. That right there pays off the entire thing.
Anyway, I've got it running Ubuntu 7.04, and I'm keeping it as a folding rig.

Ya, In need to go back to the CompUSA near me. I was looking at their cases and they had a Centurion for $50, but it looked higher end than their regular $50 case. I think it was the step up from the Centurion 5 cuz it looked to have more features and not so plain. Good find.
