    OK.... so I was sitting here thinking about all the stuff I have laying around here that I have NO USE for what so ever. I thought to myself, why not give it away? So here it goes.... here is whats up.

    First off, the stuff I am giving away is to go to someone that needs it to either upgrade his system or something that person does not already have. I would rather someone who needs this to help his\her system out just a little bit longer until they can upgrade.

    Second, I am not charging anything. Shipping I am going to take care of. If you want to pay for shipping, thats great... but not a must. Although on the larger items like PSU's and what not, it is appreciated. Shipping is going to be just regular Parcel Post with no insurance or delivery confirmation. Sorry you guys out of the states, I am going to have to exclude you on this one.

    Third, everything I am giving away is to be considered NOT working. In all likely hood it will work, and I will even state weather or not I tested it and if it works. But after it goes in the mail.... I will not make any promises.


    Now the stuff that I am giving away are not high end parts. Just stuff that I have laying around that I am sure someone could use to upgrade their existing system to help make it last a little bit longer.

    This is not an essay contest to see who can beg better than someone else. Its not about that.


    I will try to do this on the 1st and 15th of the month. If anyone else wants to give away something, please feel free to use this thread.



    I may give away more than just twice a month.... we will see.

    Also, this isn't a request thread.... Please do not make requests for me to give you something. I am putting up what I have in no particular order

    Anyhow, I hope you guys like the idea! :toast:

    It's great to see you do this d44ve, especially for those that cannot afford much of a rig!

    Hope any parts that are given away from you are much appreciated.

    I'm off to college soon and I'm trying to set up a home server for my folks before I leave. It's entirly from scrap parts and the like. (Athlon XP system).

    I don't have any RAM for it though, and I don't really have the money to get it for them, as I just dropped $800 on a laptop and I'm over 10K in dept with my college so far. I'd sure appreciate the RAM.
