wanted base unit/parts to revive an old pc

hi there all - first thing first - my budget is tight - i was trying to turn my old xp1700+ pc into linux htpc but there are some hardware issue and it keeps crashing (both in windows and linux)
cant justify throwing too much money on this so i'm basicly looking for a base unit or mobo/cpu/HD (the most likely the cause of my crashes i think) for upto £50 including delivery (or can collect if its in north-west london area)

might be i'm asking for too much but maybe someone here has some leftovers they might like to know are being put into good use entertaining my family

in case you are interested i have an nslu2 virtually unused which i could trade for the above

cheers
michel

if it crashes in both windows and linux its prob just overheating. try removing all dust from fans etc and running the pc on its side with the lid off :) works wonders

Athlon 2600 xp
512mb ram
128mb Geforce 4600 Titanium
Dvd rom drive (might be a dvd burner, cant remember off hand)
And I'll stick in a 40gb drive (formatted)

wow - so many responses! i'm well impressed...
first thank you all
secondly please state how much you would like for the items you are offering.
thirdly i want to see if i can get a complete working base unit or combo first which should save me some hastle before i opt for separate parts.
and in regard to the crashes - i have all sides off in a cold room but the crashes (windows) or in the bootting process where it just hangs every other boot and need hard restart. i have changed HDs around and reinstalled xp but it doesnt make a difference. also connecting usb devices seems to cause crashes on a random basis
anyway it is quite old socket A athlon XP1700 and could do with a bit more power (and usb2 connector) and perhaps an internal DVB card ather than my s***** artec T1

Sorry to post of topic but specman, I've noticed you posting a few of these types of deals and was wondering if you have any more? I'm looking for a cheap pc (maybe two) for the kids, nothing fantastic, and obviously looking for something cheap as it's just for a bit of homework and surfing and was wondering if you had any more lying around? If you do, feel free to drop me a pm, save taking over someone's post.

Thanks.

Hi, well I've normally got computers floating around, I knock a few together sometimes and just seem to 'acquire' them off my mates or they just appear ;-)

I have 3 that I want to ship out, the best one I sold to 'siliconbits' and now the 2 I have left are a bit trickier, one of them is a small micro ATX computer which does have Windows and Office on but I need to fire it up to see if they are genuine versions or not, also the front panel usb, firewire and card reader ports aren't working so I need to check that out too. The other one is the computer I offered to mmoalem1, but that one doesn't have an operating system on it so may not be any good for you. Basically give me another day and I'll set up my own thread, post some pics and note down the state of the computers and you can see what you think.

It's a beast Jim but not as we know it ;-)
Tis rather large I'm afraid, a big beige tower, however as mentioned above I do have a smaller micro ATX tower which looks rather neat but there are a couple of probs I need to check with it. Plus one side of the case has some scratches and scuffs but the inner parts all work fine, also not sure if the spec is gonna be enough for u, 1800+ athlon, only 256mb ram but does have a 128mb dedicated ATI 9250 card. Like I said above I shall create a new thread soon and put some pics of the 2 computers and you can judge for your self.
