    Hey guys, I'm now at Uni, and living on-campus, I have come to realise my room is a little bit cramped for a huge PC (the Cosmos is enormous after all). I've also noticed I haven't used it properly for at least a month now, it's just sitting here, rotting away, so I want to sell it and recover some of the cash. I've already posted it up on Gumtree.com, for both the London and Canterbury networks, just to see if anyone bites, and I figured I should post it here too.

    I've posted it for £400 on Gumtree, and so I shall start this off with the same price, but feel free to make offers.

    I believe the specs on the left are correct, but I shall check them once I'm done typing this out, and uploading the pictures.
    I'll upload another picture with better lighting and a paper with the date and my name written on it later, and possibly with less graininess to the quality, if I can, I'm just being lazy now.


    I forgot to mention at first, this is just for the computer itself, no monitor, keyboard, mouse or software included, although I'll possibly sell the Lycosa (it's one of the early ones, so it's a US layout) and my G5 (the original one, so no forward button).
    Also forgot to mention I'm in Canterbury most of the time, and that's where I have the computer, but anyone in or around London interested in it can still buy it, and then I'd take it back with me, so something can always be sorted out.

    Oh, basically everything has its original box, manual, CDs and accessories (I have my Cosmos tool box, but it's not with the case, so I don't get tempted to mess with things as much :p).

    @ DrPepper: In that case, tell him £500 :p just kidding. Not sure what to price it at, and individual parts ends up costing about £350-400 on Ebay and if buying new.
    Just so you know, that doesn't include monitor, keyboard, speakers and mouse, sorry I didn't mention it, I'll edit post in a sec. I am a forgetful clutz at times.
    Also doesn't include OS, the Vista I have installed is MSDN-AA version, and I don't want to get in trouble for giving it away, but I have XP x64 lying about.

    @ kyle2020: I could part it out, if I could find someone interested in the rest, but I doubt that would happen.

    Certainly will do, I've noticed the price of the Cosmos has gone back up, so if this was still BNIB, I could actually make a profit!

    :( No offers? I will haggle, I'm still not sure whether £400 is too much.

    Yeah, true. I didn't think of that. It's not costly to advertise in papers, so I might just give it a try. Thanks for the advice.
