Stuff I have lying around

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a few spare parts lying around and I was just curious if anyone thought they worth investing a little upgrade money into.

AMD Athlon LE (Single Core) 2.8ghz - would definitely swap out

ASRock 780G Full HD - I know I won't get any overclocking done with this board, but I bought it a year and a half ago for 30 USD on ebay (recently replaced it with my trusty E-350)

2GB Super Talent DDR2 800 @ 4-4-3-8 - from quite a few years ago from an old gaming pc, I was thinking of adding another one or two gigs of 4-4-4-12

160GB Hitachi SATA2 8mb cache

400GB Seagate SATA2 32mb cache

Antec P182 Chassis - seems kind of silly to place a micro atx board into it, but it's not seeing any use at the moment


I would need a power supply, a new cpu, and a graphics card, but I don't really want to spend too much as I plan to buy a Bulldozer in June or July. In any case, worth a small investment?

if you have a use for it, you could probably make something out of those parts that would be worthwhile...

It actually was my HTPC until I replaced it, but now I just have it lying around and it's not like it would sell for very much on ebay. I was thinking about turning it into a Linux box, but I don't really have any use for that either.
