    A friend of mine is looking to fix his current system which currently has a bad socket A board and 3200+ Athlon XP proc. I just wanted to see if anyone would have a board, proc, and memory for $150 or under for him. If it is a PCI-E equipped board he probably will need a video card as well and I think anything would be an upgrade over his Geforce 4 TI 400:)

    Note: His son is very sick and he would need the items to be held for 2 weeks until he gets paid again

    Want a cheap pci-e card? How about an 8600GT? It's lowend but an upgrade from the 400.

    I'm flexible on the price, pm me if your interested.

    Theres some good cheap board/ram/cpu combos here surely we can put together a cheap system fairly quick.

    I'll pm you once I get an OK from him. His son is really sick and money is kinda tight so he's talking to relatives right now. I'd help him out but I have nothing for a system.

    PM replied sir!

    Not sure what your asking "Ultra or A model?" Gigabyte made 3 different versions of the GA-7 boards, GA-7VA, GA-7VAX, and GA-7VAXP. The GA-7VAXP supported DDR400, and also has RAID on board. If I recall correctly, it also has 5.1 audio. Realtek I believe.

    That was the two options that came up on their site when checking the board out. No sweat, I think he will take what he can get for now.

    :laugh::laugh::laugh:That's kind of funny really! I guess it would be considered the "Ultra" I suppose. Considering it has every option that was offered in its day LOL.

    When you mean cheap, does this qualify:

    Socket 939 Mobo (Asus made), single core 3700+, and 512MB DDR400 for $45 shipped.

    I've got an E6600 I'll give em for free if I can locate it. Would that work? I had a intel 955 board that went with it but gave it away some time ago.

    EDIT: Found it, PM me if it'll do you any good.

    That does qualify so I'll let him know later today and let you know what he says after he gets off work today.

    That would be sweet but I do not own any 775 boards or have extra ram. Thanks though for the offer:toast:
