An 1155 'pentium dual core' can be had for really cheap and shoudl do what u need

Celerons have some resell value as well. If I didn't just sell my g1630 a week or so ago I would totally do that. good luck.

I would have said you can buy a 2500k here, test, and flip on ebay, but the bottom fell out on 2500k's it looks like.

thanks for the advice. but was trying avoid doing that since I have an i3 2100 es chip that is purported not to work with certain boards. I just don't fill the need to take apart my 2500 rig just for that.

anyone have a btx case? I have an hp btx 1155 board that I had bought with a 1155 chip from an ARS member. only thing is it uses a hp proprietary power supply and btx case. I believe he still has the case and psu. If anyone is interested in the board, they can have it for the cost of mailing bout $13 in a medium usps flat rate box.
 
lol. I'm in the same boat. Those prices for sony brand ones are crazy!
Yep . chines crap is for 10$ or so , but i don't really want to buy it.. i'd rather pay same for used original controller

bought ps3 for a long time ago , but i think i only used it twice or so, don't like playing alone on console : D
 
Im looking for a cheap core 2 duo chip, preferably a E8400 if someone has.
 
Looking for a 3.5" or 5.25" front panel media reader with at least 2 USB ports and a black panel 5.25" SATA optical drive - at least a DVD-RW. Doesn't have to be fast. BD-ROM ideal - does not have to be free or for shipping cost.
 
would anyone have a good i3 chip that I can borrow to test a 1155 board? I will pay mailing costs to and from me.

starhawk: I will look again for that fan

thanks

i3 chip no longer needed. I forgot bout an i3 system that I had bought at a pawnshop recently. board tested good. its the engineering sample chip that's not playing fair. tested on both system board and zotac board with nothing showing. member had already said it wont post on asus and asrock boards. wont post on a dell system board or a zotac board. ideals anyone?

the 1155 btx hp system board is still available for anyone.

sort of tempted. my 1155 rig took a crap months ago and I've been using my old DDR2 era AM3 rig at home ever since. Havent found the time or money to replace it.

Unfortunately, this front panel hub has everything except for usb ports :(
 
Not asking for a total freebie here, will pay fair price if something looks good enough.

Looking for a small (the smaller, the better) mITX case with ~120-200 Watt PSU. Full height slots not needed as I'm using onboard graphics. This is for a charity build. Really don't want to have to put my only good (expensive) extra PSU in a gigantic case.

These pushpin type or bolt-through with backplate? I'm probably most interested in the copper one. If it's complete (with fan and working pushpins or backplate), I've got dibs :D
 
Anyone got a 2-4gb CF card they don't need anymore? I just got a shiny firebox and want to load pfsense on it. I would get one off ebay, but I don't trust cf cards from there.
 
if anyone have an Otterbox case with belt clip for a Moto G first version that they are no longer use or need, I will pay the mailing costs or something a little more for it. just send me a pm.

pretty sure i have a few fan screws at home. I'll check when i get there if the other guys come up empty.

Anyone have a cheapo low power PCI-E video card that has HDMI out. I can pay, just don't want to pay an arm and a leg for a new one.

Looking for a replacement mobo for my Phenom II X4 955 (Socket AM3). Don't need much with it. 2 PCI-e slots. 4 RAM slots (hopefully supports DDR3 1600).

My board is flaking out. 2 RAM slots dead and onboard sound is flaky as well. Anyone have something laying around? Going to try to post my list of available stuff soon. Bunch of new 3.5" SATA drives (120, 256GB) and other random stuff that might be useful to others.

PM me your address if you still need them.
 
Looking for a 450w or so working psu to try in my old q6600 rig that just fried. The old psu went up in smoke and don't know what caused it. I don't want to try my new build psu incase something else took it out. Just want to see if the old mobo and stuff works or if that's fried too.
Pm me if you have one with price shipped to zip 53963
Thanks

here's an idea. try checking your local thrift store if one is available in your area while waiting for a reply here. that way u can cover all bases.
 
Been going to 3 different ones for years. Only computer I've ever seen I bought for parts over 15 years ago. Been trying craigslist tho and will check garage sales if I don't find one before they start.

I have an old Tt or antec floating around, but it'll cost like $10 or so to ship. but for a couple bucks more you can get a crappy/ok one that'll at least serve your needs on amazon

if he's willing to ship the TT or Antec psu to u for $10, take it. it will save u time and gas. NO brainer on that. I just got ripped on a psu from CL that my son supposedly was to visibly check and he didn't. so instead of a Antec hcg900, this lowlifed witch give him this Dynex 520w psu in the antec 900 box for $40. She knew that especially when I texted her back a week later when I finally got it from my son.
