Notes:

3DMark 06: 11,724

Can run the likes of Crysis on medium-high settings, everything else is a breeze. Fallout 3 for example I completed with settings maxed out on Ultra.

The CPU has been run at stock, but when I tried overclocking with the Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7 it is capable of 3.2Ghz at 400MHz x 8, vcore 1.40, Orthos Stable 10+hrs, which is an excellent overclock with only a small increase in vcore.

The graphics card is factory overclocked. Its probably one of the best 8800GTs released, due to both the factory OC, and the cooler is almost silent and keeps the card ice cool even when playing GPU intensive games like Crysis with no audible increase in noise.

8800GT Review:

Once a buyer has been found I will do a complete re-format and fresh install of Vista with SP1, and I will also install all the latest drivers so it will be ready to go.
Shipping/Payment:
Due to the size it is Pick-Up only (East Sussex), so can also be seen working.

Check out my ebay feedback: Username *kscd87* (star-k-s-c-d-8-7-star). Payment can be either paypal or cash on arrival or a mixture of both.

Really don't think it's an option, sorry. Would have to pull it all apart, box it all up and postage would cost a fortune :-(

Would you post the Creative 7.1 Inspire T7900 Speaker System?
Thanks :)

Only if the rest of the system sold without them I'm afraid. If it doesn't sell I'm just going to have to keep the lot.
#15
OK, If it doesn't get sold when the PC does, could you send me a PM or something?
Thanks, and good luck with the sale. :)

I would be interested at asking price but I would need it posting.

If you put it into a big box with packing around it I could arrange a courier.

If you're happy to arrange and pay for the courier I'll sort out the packaging :thumbsup:

Did you want the whole lot?

A few questions for you about the PC: -
If we don't plan on overclocking do you think we will need the 'Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7'?
Also Vista. I don't suppose you've got XP you could install instead, have you?
We would be interested in Crysis - but not the speakers.

Thanks.

1. If you don't plan on overclocking then the stock Intel cooler will be fine, yes. But it would be louder and the CPU would run slightly hotter. It's your choice. :)

2. I don't have XP I'm afraid, no. Vista is a fantastic operating system that while it had it's teething problems, has been brilliant for ages. It will be a fresh install, and I will spend some time installing the latest drives, Service Pack 1 and optimising Vista so that it runs quick and smooth.

3. Crysis but no speakers is fine. Would you be wanting the sound card (one of the optional extras) then if you don't want the speakers? The motherboard has excellent sound for up to 5.1 surround sound onboard. Gives me an idea of a price.
#22
Ok thanks for the answer,

Would you give me a price please for the PC with the cooler and Crysis.

I'd sort the courier out (not sure who yet but I'll have a look around).

Would you be able to send me a mesage through Ebay please - I'll PM my username.

Hope you guys don't mind me chirping in....

As it's an OEM version of Vista, I believe its licence/product key is tied to the motherboard it was originally installed on. So you couldn't have sold the PC/motherboard without it.

roscoe2000, I'd say the cooler is definitely worth it whether one overclocks or not - so good call there. I would've bought the PC myself if I didn't do a few upgrades recently & also purchased an entire secondhand PC (though nowhere as modern or powerful as this).

Did you want the soundcard? It will be £360 for the PC + Cooler + Crysis Warhead, or £380 for the PC + Cooler + Crysis Warhead + Soundcard. (TBH I would recommend not bothering with the sound card unless you're running 7.1 surround sound.)

Don't mind you chirping in, no :) You're half right with what you're saying. Because it's an OEM, Vista is tied to the hardware configuration. But although the Vista disc would no longer be able to be registered to another PC, this PC can be reformatted any time and another OS installed on it. :thumbsup:

No

£350 and your on?

I have just been checking out a courier and I think it will be around £15 depending on the size and weight of the box.

£355 and you have yourself a deal. No lower I'm afraid, 'tis going to cost me a few bob to get some large strong cardboard boxes and bubble wrap :roll:

Ebay message sent :-)
#27
Ok sounds good.

When you say 'boxes', would you not be able to get it 1 largish box.

I've got a quote of £14.50 + Vat for a parcel no more than 20kg with dimensions no bigger than
62 cm Length * 45cm Width * 62cm Width.

I'm at work today but I'll be logging on periodically.

Would you accept half payment upfront and half when I have the PC (you've seen my feeback on Ebay, and here)?

Yeah, I will get it all in one box :thumbsup:

That payment method is fine by me too. Are you sorting and paying for the courier or do you need me to do it? In which case I will need the details + the money.

1st payment: £180 (+delivery if needed)
Upon arrival: £175

The dimensions of that seems fine, Yet to determine whether 20kg is sufficient, it will be close though.

Also, are you comfortable fitting a heatsink to a CPU? Ideally I would like to remove the heatsink because they're not really designed to be on when transported. I'm going to remove the graphics but thats easy to fit. If you want I can include detailed instructions and I will include thermal paste (Arctic Silver, worth about £5 on its own :thumbsup:)
#29
I can sort the courier out.

I'm not keen on the heatsink bit though!

I'd rather you put it on - should be ok if you put plenty of bubble wrap around it.

Whens the best day for the courier to pick it up?

It's probably worth taking this to PM rather replying on the thread.

What an excellant price, cheap as chips this and about the same as my PC. Good one m8 hope you get the money your asking! GL!

Tbh mate i'd take his advice about the heatsink, a lot of them are pretty heavy and can easily damage the mainboard.

Yeah. I'm very uneasy about leaving the heatsink on through transit. Couriers aren't exactly gentle with packages (I've seen reputable couriers hurling stuff into the back of lorries even though labelled clearly with "Fragile" stickers).

I would much rather remove it and package it in the box separately, but if you're sure you can't fit it I'm afraid it will have to be at your own risk if you want it on. I will see what I can do package-wise to keep it in place. I may be able to jam some bubble wrap between it and the case to keep it firmly in place, I will look into it.
#33
Gotta vouch for the heatsink opinions here fella, mainboards are fragile things and the coolers can weight anything up to about around 5/600g for the larger ones, more than enough to snap the mainboard if care isn't taken.

Just like the one i've got around here somewhere but never had the nadgers to fit....

#35
Ok it sounds like it going to have to be fitted when I get it.

This need to be fitted before the PC can be used.....is that correct?
#36
yes else the cpu will heat and die, unless you just use the stock heatsink. as long as one is on you're good
