    hey Guys... It's pretty much going to be the same question again (for those of you that remember my old thread)!!

    I have a Case, PSU and Motherboard with Graphics...

    I need another *cheap* socket 266fsb (Athlon or Duron... Doesn't really matter... as long as it will run XP or 2000) CPU and maybe a stick of *cheap* RAM...

    Anyone got anything they can sell cheap at all??

    Cheers

    Chris

    None here, but cheapest I've found online is around £50 for a CPU + 256 Ram.

    You might be able to pick something up from ebay if no-one here has one, probably quite cheap now too.

    Good luck :thumb:

    All of the cheap ones on eBay are untested... and thats a bit risky... Untested or broken!? i know which would attract more bids.

    Athlon 2000's go for £30+ it's ridiculous (if advertised as working)...

    I'm looking for something like what i got in my original thread... Flops sold me an Applebred Duron 1.4 (which runs at a constant 2.01Ghz now) and 256Mb RAM for i think £30 or so!

    Not looking for anything amazing, just want this PC to work :)

    I guess no-one has anything so i may have to go brand new...

    Cheers Ian thats some of the cheapest prices so far

    Crikey - even Athlon 1800's are going for more than 30 quid! Outrageous.

    30 pounds is about 53 dollars now. I wished I coverted my dollars to pounds a long time ago before the dollar devalued.


    I have a socket A, 900MHZ AMD Duron that works. I replaced it with a 1.8GHZ chip.
    Its in a anti-static bag in a metal box now.

    Is it a DDR mother board.

    Will SDRAM PC100 sticks work I have a few of those also in anti-static bag. I dont remeber the stick size.
    Mothers that use PC133 will work with PC100 backwards compatible.

    I have a 1.1 Duron you can have for the postage.

    (It's actually in my 'for sale' thread).

    Yes, two months, originally posted on 8th October.

    Still stuff for sale there, if it isn't marked SOLD it's still up for grabs.

    Antec case reduced to £15.00 plus postage as I used the PSU from it.
