And you DO NOT want a crappy phase unit that has been custom built. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> I don't even want to think about it. Either save up to find a Mach II (can be had for as low as $500 or even a little less if you find a used one) or upgrade in a different fashion.

"I had planned on asking $300 plus shipping, mine is using a Chilly 1 evap and a Danfoss 1/4hp compressor."<br><br>
That's what he told me. I've been talking to him off and on about getting a unit. I've got to get a plane ticket to Spain first, then I can get a Phase unit.

Well then he must be using used crap parts. For my build a new compressor alone (a cheap one i found that will work) is $70, cases arent cheap a condenser is $45 and that chilly1 evap is $100. A good custom made one will run you at least $500

I would get some pictures of it first, before getting too far into it.

Just compare with bare-bones Core 2 Duo set up:<br><ul><li>MoBo: Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express $117.99</li>
<li>CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz $180.00</li>
<li>RAM: G.SKILL 1GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) $119.99</li>
</ul>
Total: $417.98 + shipping<br><br>
Thus, the choice is: a by default faster CPU, with decent parts, or a cheap phase unit. The pricing seems about the same.<br><br>
I think it's just a matter what you want. Have fun with phase or go Core 2 Duo. I was thinking phase, having a non-cold bugged Opty 165, but then I messed up my motherboard, and I then decided to go Core 2 Duo.
