Wanted: Any computer hardware

banned8y, 8m agoPosted 8 years, 8 months agoFeedback:3 Positive/0 Neutral/0 Negative
Hi, im looking to build a pc for my gran, she only needs it for writing letters so i dont really need fast stuff.
Does anyone have any hardware that they no longer require?
I can only offer money to cover the postage?
Is there anyone out there kind enough to donate some old hardware?
I already have a monitor and a spare tower case with keyboard and mouse.
Thank You so much.

I may have a 32Mb AGP2x nVidia graphics card, some PC100 SD-ram & a 6Gb hard drive. Will confirm tomorrow with postage cost. Do you have an eBay/PayPal account?
banned#15

I only have 1 feedback on here (well i will have soon once the person leaves it) as im very new to internet buying and selling. The last transaction i did was via bank transfer.

No problem about the PayPal account, etc. I found the graphics card, hard disk & a stick of 128Mb RAM. This should go well with baconsandwich's components. Didn't have time to go to the post office, but I don't foresee it being more than £5 (or, much less without the hard drive). Anyway, let me know if still interested. You don't need a CD or DVD-rom drive, do you?

does anyone have a spare tv card or wireless pci card please? thats all i now need to finish the build of the pc.
#36
Jesus christ your nan wants a lot of pc for letter writing.
banned#37
i know its a big ask, she has dementure and is in a home and she has to go into the lobby if she wants to watch tv. do you know how hard it is to watch the channel you want when there are about 25 other grannies in there lol. the wireless card is for the same pc as they provide free wifi in the home. were going to "try" to set her up on messenger or on email so she doesnt seem alone when the visiting times are over.
