    Hi guys and girls.

    I decided to jump on the deal a friend made to me a one month old motherboard for 30$ and rebuild myself a setup.

    Mobo : G31M-GS R2.0 (30$)
    CPU : 6300 SL9SA 1.86gig/2M/1066FSB (Going on overclock at least 2.5gigs) (Junk)
    CPU cooler : CoolerMaster Vortex 752 (15$)
    Memory : (4gigs) 2gigs Kingston KVR800D2N5/2G + 2gigs Transcend JM800QLU-2G (Junk)
    Graphic : Asus EN9800GT HB/HTDI/512M/A (Junk)
    Optical : DVD-RW LG GH22NS70 (Sata2) (35$ back in time)
    Hard disk : Samsung Spinpoint SP2504C (Sata2) (Junk)
    Power supply : Enermax NoiseTaker 2 EG495P-VE (2$..yeah you've read right!)
    Case : Aerocool Qx-2000 (120$ back in time and used it in many setup already)

    Will probably add a 3.5" cards reader and use it for Office, Youtube, Facebook, Downloading, Battlefield 2 multiplayer. Maybe time to open my nib Arkham asylum to try it.

    Total cost of the setup 47$. Junk parts are parts i got from people who don't want anymore, municipal ecologic recycling depot and even on roadside the day of garbage.

    Well it's old but at least not AGP/ATA/DDR1 old. For that price it's great for the things you want to use it for.

    Not that bad actually. BF2 should be no problem.

    I ran BF2 on a single core Opteron Venus @ 2.7Ghz, Biostar NF4SLi-A9, Nvidia 7800GT, 2x1GB of ram iirc.

    All I can think about with that build is the woes my friend is going through still having a 9800GT, but at least you spent WAY less for your sys than he did.

    I will but I will probably get a double post warning.


    Free is always a good price! Except when it's Aids. :p
