Wanted: Barebones PCs

Looking for two barebones PC's, basically I need case, psu, motherboard and cpu and hopefully a CD-RW/DVD-ROM.

Doesn't have to be anything amazing, just for the kids to surf and do a bit of homework, and as they'll no doubt have them wrecked soon enough I'm looking to spend as little as possible.

I managed to find two P4 2.4mhz barebones systems (obviously the older socket 478) on ebay for £100 delivered so I don't really want to pay any more than that.

Thought I'd see if anyone here had anything before going with ebay.

I can pay by paypal (obviously I'll pay the fees) or I have a BNIB ds lite black if you're interested in a trade.

I've got two machines - a P3 600Mhz with 320MB RAM, 20Gb HDD, and a P4 1.8Ghz with 384MB RAM, 40Gb HDD.

Each has a CRT monitor (one 14" and one 17") both have CD-RW drives and the P4 has a DVD drive (but it's a bit temperamental!)

Both have onboard sound and video

Both have XP installed (only one has a license though, the other would be just so you know it works ;-) )

Also both have Office 2003 installed (again though, this is only to show that it works ;-) )

I'm looking for about £150 for them, although I am quite partial to a game of 'lets barter for a good deal' :)

Obviously, these are quite heavy so delivery will have to come on top of that or pick-up is fine!

I'll post pics if you are interested!

Cheers WW
Thanks, but the ebay ones are better spec than both and they're only £100 delivered for the two.

I don't need a monitor or software either.

I know the ebay ones are a decent deal, so I probably should go with those, but ever the money saver thought I'd ask here. Especially since there might be the chance of trading for the DS.

Or if anyone has two motherbord/CPU bundles I might be interested.
hmmm... tempting, I probably could do both for the ds lite if you fancy! I can never keep up with pc prices so sorry if they seemed over priced!
Again thanks, but I'd rather go with the better spec ones.
no worries!
I've just been told I don't need to do this as it's already taken care of:oops: . As always I'm the last to know.

Can the mods close the thread please.

Thanks for the replies.
