    I was just joking because the price is ridiculous, lowing them down will be almost impossible, specially the CPUs, that's why i told him "great deal", the PS was just kinda ironic :)

    Anyway, thanks for the extra info :toast:

    I just rebuilded this PC for myself during the time I wait to get more money.

    Compaq Evo D51S SFF

    UPGRADES

    CPU: 2.4 to 2.8
    Memory: 512megs ddr-266 to 2 gigs ddr-400
    HDD: 40 gigs to 80 gigs
    CD reader to DVD-RW burner

    I also modded the psu fan. Just took an Antec fan from a dead smartpower and put it in place. Almost dead silent the whole computer now.

    noisy, hot, excess vibration, unreliable?


    some of the older maxtors i've used were ok, (some 250GB sata's i had were actually quite reliable, other than their slow ass speeds) but overall they werent very good.
    case in point: they no longer exist

    This one still work fine not noisy and for the heat we don't really care here it's winter so it warms up the place :)

    it depends on weather or not you have positive or negative pressure in your case if its negative it will provide a bit better airflow but also introduce more dust in your system if your not using something like mesh bracket covers. if its positive pressure it will decrease the pressure in your case and could potentially improve airflow over certain components it would be more of a trial and error sort of thing at the point, you also would not have to worry about introducing more dust if its positive airflow. if you have neutral pressure in your case it could turn negative by opening more "vents"

    Something absurdly big that I can fill with drives and hide cables :laugh:.
