Hi there, I've finally decided to let this thing go... Let me know.

I'm interested in trading it for a 20" Intel iMac with the video upgrade. I don't care about ram, or harddrive. the most important is the Video upgrade. If you don't have the upgrade, that's fine too, let me know. I can add cash to the PC if we both feel it's necessary to make the deal equal. Thanks for looking.

Also looking for an Xbox 360 Premium and some games. Hopefully Oblivion will be among them

I have 100% positive feedback on ebay(user "puregelan"), so you can be confident I won't screw you over.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Dual Core (currently running at 2.3ghz, stock 2.0)
Epox 9NPA+ Ultra Motherboard
2 x 512 MB Corsair XMS TwinX Performance RAM (cool LED's on top )
XFX 7900GT XXX Extreme Overclocked Video Card - 256mb VRAM
1 x 80 gb Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 RPM (Separate 12.1 gb HD for Operating System only)
1 x 300GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 RPM)
DVD R/W Dual Layer (just like superdrive)
Comes loaded with XP Pro SP2 and an authentic, Valid CD key, but the original disk was scratched beyond repair, so you'll have to find your own OEM copy of the XP CD if you need to re-install.

Antec P180 Aluminum sided case
Antec 430watt Truepower 2.0 Power supply
Thermaltake Bigwater SE Water Cooling System

This is a sexy looking computer. The Antec case is simple, yet awesomely designed. Similar to the Powermac G5 inside, it separates the high heat powersupply from the rest of the computer. There is 3 120mm fans in the case, 1 on the internal radiator for the water cooling system, another in the front to draw air in, and another in the bottom of the case to provide airflow for the powersupply.

I built this computer painstakingly over the past 8 months or so, so you can be sure that it works perfectly and performs to the top standards. You can run any modern PC game on this machine, and it will fly.

I'm looking at a price around US$1650(Now 1600), but i'm flexible. I'll consider any offer, as long as you're not low-balling me.

Again, thanks for looking.

-------------------------------------------------------
No credit for OS cause anyone can get a "valid" os key online or from a buddy. if the validation goes quacky, he has no recoarse.

The system has had added stress via over clocking.

Please dont over price products here. Unless you feel I forgot something special, you should be offering $600 -$700 at most. But thats just IMO.

Well all the parts I used aren't readily available to Canadians. I had to take 8 months of scrounging them up from ebay, and other retailers that are difficult to get them to ship to canada.

I spent time and effort to assemble this system and that's worth something. I priced all parts here on Newegg, and they came out to $1300-1400... I don't think 200-300 is a bad price for my time.

That's where I got my price from. Plus, I'm accepting offers, and all of them will be seriously considered.

What? Why would the validation go wrong? It's a legal copy, and the key has only been used by me. I damaged the original disc.

If you want to disrespect me, please do it in private. There's no need to print libelous statements here.

I just checked pricewatch.com and they don't have the exact card that I'm selling.

Check out www.xfxforce.com for my card. It's model number: PV-T71G-UDD

You did not mention the yellow sticker containing the cdkey was all. No disrespect ment. Alot of people sell their computers without the os disks so they dont have to buy a new OS. Just dont include it in the price. If you give them the yellow sticker that comes with the box then great... thats more then most will do.


And ya, being in Cananda eh? Changes the value but to other Canadians more so then US.


Hay I saw that movie about cananda called Bowling for Columbine. Is it true that Canadians dont lock their door? How do you keep your stuff where you left your stuff?

We don't usually lock them when we're at home. I have never felt afraid to even do this at night. My truck was stolen about 7 years ago, but recovered the next day with no damage. I left the keys in it. Even since then, I've never thought twice about locking the doors to my house.

As for keeping my stuff where I left it? I use shelves, tables, and boxes?

are you asking him?
July 26, 2006 5:09:07 PM

yes, because I was not sure what he meant by that statement. so I added an inquisitive "?" at the end.

As for where I live, prozac. I live in Oakville ;)  now don't come rob me because I leave my door unlocked.

I ment that people tend to move your stuff, usualy out of your home/appartment when you leave your doors unlocked.

But luckly where I live I dont care so much about locking stuff while im in it.



You havent mentioned weither that computer will come with the yellow holographic sticker that contains the CDkey.
