Here's my evaluation - taking rough equivalent new prices:

e6300 £70ish
8600gt £50ish
4gigs ddr2 £50ish
Tv tuner £20ish
2x DVD £40ish
SATA 250 £35ish
VHP £60ish

You don't say what motherboard but so a rough estimate £70 for the motherboard, case, other software and wireless card - you'ld be looking at near £400 to make. Its really worth a bit less than that though due to depreciation through being second hand.

Hmm I really wanted to ask about £375 for it with next day courier delivery, but if I ask for that will people not be interested?

And I dont mind putting the second brand new 250 gig SATA HD in as well.

It was a pre built Hewlett Packard PC which I upgraded.

Don't think I'd personally pay that much without the extra hard drive although it does have decent ram etc. Depends a lot where you plan to sell it I guess (I don't think you would get that much on this site because people here are savvy and tight-fisted by nature ;-))

BTW where did you see VHP for £60 lol as I can build PC's and if I see one for that price I can build one cheap for my parents.

And BTW the TV Tuner is a freeview one not an old fashioned one

And it comes with a brand new wireless keyboard and mouse.

Look for OEM software - this is basically the unboxed, disc and license only software that comes with a computer. For example ebuyer have VHP for £61 (32bit) or a bit more for 64bit, but its probably even cheaper if you shop around.

I've seen many DVB computer tuners for under £20 before, the best example I can think of is the Radeon All-In-Wonder X800 which was (and may still be) around £25 at aria and other places, this was a half decent 128MB 3D card with DVB-tuner, and analogue tuner, and fm radio, and rf remote control and even IO breakout boxes and scart!

With the 4GB of RAM and Vista, Vista wont be able to see all 4, more around 3.4GB or something similar

Depends if its the 32bit version of Vista. The 64bit version should see all 4gigs.

No problem - its on SS at the moment for £20+vat+del...

http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/ATI+Radeon+X800+GT+All+In+Wonder+PCI-E+?productId=27196


NB I should point out I don't think Vista drivers are available for the AIW section, which I'll admit is a big deal but if you are an XP user its a great card for the money.

Edit - Just noticed "Please note The current stock unfortunately does not include the ATI Remote Wonder mentioned in the reviews" - its a pity that, the RF remote was what made it really good (I bought mine from Aria with the remote around 10 months ago when Google Checkout deal was on and think it worked out about £27 delivered next day). :-(
