Default Wanted...

Didn't seem right to post this in the Wanted forum...

I need at least a PIII or equivalent computer. Doesn't really matter on peripherals, just mainly need a MB, processor, HDD, and memory...I'm sure I could take care of the rest...

If someone does have a whole setup, that would be ideal...

What kind of price are you looking at? You can get barebone setups cheap. Duron processors around 1.3 ghz are like $30-$40. For performance a pentium 4 with 533fsb could be had for about $100 or less, and mobos are a dime a dozen for those.

As little as possible...

Nah, I'm thinking $200 range for a PIII setup isn't too unreasonable...

I found this @ newegg.com a couple weeks ago. The stuff below is only part of a complete computer I built online and total was only $500. So the stuff below is even less.

CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2800 +
Motherboard: ASUS A7N8X nVidia nForce-2 Ultra 400 FSB 8X
Memory: 256 MB PC 3200 DDR (you could get 512 of course)
