I made a mistake. My perfectly working PC failed and I thought I had ruled out the power supply.
I bought a new motherboard, CPU and RAM and... it didn't work. That's when I bought a new power supply.
So, the good news is that I have a new computer but the bad news is that I splurged on new kit when the old kit worked perfectly well.
What we have for sale is;
1) an Intel E6750 Core 2 Duo two-core CPU
2) a Gigabyte P35 motherboard (with Alaska CPU cooler)
3) 4GB RAM fitted
4) My tiny brainpower to help you get it built and working
All you need is a case, power supply and a hard disk or two.
If you already have a case with a power supply (presumably from an old PC) and have a Windows or Linux DVD to get up and running then, between us, we can get you a pretty decent PC running.
I reckon the bundle is worth around £75-£100 on ebay so I'm just asking for offers and will put the winning funds, excluding postage, into the forum funds.
One caveat is that if you have a worthy cause, then you can have it for nowt and I'll stand the postage.
I will, of course, do all I can to help you get the computer up and running.
to avoid any unseemly auctions on the forum please PM me with your bid and/or worthy cause. When it's obvious that there is no better bid coming (based on my totally arbitrary reasoning!) then I'll close the mock-auction and let you all know the outcome.
No matter which way it ends up, this is for a worthy cause - so happy to hear from you!
