Okay people I am ready to buy your unwanted/not needed hardware that is just collecting dust. Couple of things first.

  • Payment to you will be via paypal.
  • You must be prepared to hook me up with a picture, due to recent scams on TPU. (Unless I know you are reliable) My heatware is Linkin.
  • You must have heatware or someone very reputable on here who can vouch for you.
  • Check below for more specifics for each piece of hardware.
  • No lemons please.
  • Please PM me with your stuff/prices. Be sure to include shipping in your quote. (zip is 73801)
  • Would like this stuff here by Saturday (11-1-08)

List of things we need:

We are not looking high-end here, just enough to make a decent media center pc. Lemme know what you got! :rockout:

I have an ASUS P5W DH Deluxe, 4 x 1GB Dominator PC2-8500 and a pair of X1950XTX's.

Interested ? Not sure I can get them to you by the 1st of November though. I will have to dig around to make sure I have all the extra parts. All work fine (at least they did when I pulled them for my last upgrade).

Interested yes but don't really have control over the budget. Above is what we came up with at the Egg. Thought we could save a few here at TPU. :) If not its kool though.

Here's the deal.

I send you the parts. No cost to you.
You test the parts and make sure they are working.
If they are not working or there is a problem, throw the parts away. (I trust you)
If they suit what you are doing, you buy and send me a copy of Fallout 3 Collectors Edition (I am sure there will be one, if it's not available I'll wait).

No paypal or any of that BS.
If either of us balks on the deal we will be trashed on TPU.
I'm willing to take the risk ;)

But like I said, I'm not sure I can get you the parts by November 1st.

You just have to PM me your real name address and I will PM mine.

Your call ;)

Good Luck.

LOL ... I'm neither desperate for Fallout 3 nor am I worried about Link' shafting me. I'd have sent them for nothing but I figured since Fallout 3 get released today I'd take advantage of the fact. :rockout:

I don't sell old parts, I give them away (as a few people on TPU can attest to).
I'd rather help people out than make a few bucks and then I don't have to deal with @#$% paypal :D
