Gauging interest on my pc

evening all,

I am i the process of building a new pc, and as such the one I have now will be available. I was just wondering if there would be anyone interested in it. Unfortunately it's not brand spanking new, it is around 5 years old.

The spec is as follows:

Pentium P4 3.0Ghz HT
1GB Ram
160Gb HDD
ATI Radeon 9200 graphix card
DVD/CD rewriter
Floppy drive
Card reader at front along with 2 usbs

It's a Fujitsu Scaleo PC and will have Windows XP Pre-installed. I will basically wipe the hard drive and re-install everything on there and update it to SP2, possibly SP3. Doesn't have an AV software but will put AVG on there and will supply the windows disc and other discs that came with it.

Tidy little machine and would be great for word processing, surfing the net, downloading etc. Will play some games but not any of the really new ones. Ideal for a student who needs something for homework or assignments.

I am in bristol and would prefer collection as it would cost a few quid to deliver on courier and would be looking for around £150.

Thanks :)

See, machines like this are hard to price where it is worth the effort to re-condition like you propose. I have a machine of similar spec (it's a Dell and I've got a 7600GT, 2GB ram and dropped in another hard disc) but agonized over paying £30.00 for the lease company to take it back or pay £60.00 to keep it (put back the way I got it of course, speced like yours).
They are excellent machines for light use (internet, word/office, file server), and can do quite a bit of gaming depending on the graphics card. The P4 does a decent job on single tasks but it's not what you want for converting video (for example).
So is it a OEM copy of windows XP or a commercial copy?

By the time you are allowed to post this in the fs/ft forum it would have depreciated further in value making it worthless.

worth around half that
#4
not worth much to be honest

to be fair that's why i'm gauging interest. in all honesty i would more than likely take around the £100 mark for it as it'll just be gathering dust once i've built my new one

OEM means you can't ask very much as it isn't upgradable/transferrable. It'd be a good machine for a relation who needs a starter machine or for basic applications. Maybe an advert at the local newsagent/paper might get you a bit more from someone less tech savvy.
