So, this guy on Craigslist posted and said he was giving away his desktop since he got a new one and that the only thing wrong with it was it was missing the HDD. So emailed and and told him I would take it (since you can never have too many spare parts.)

A week later, he emails me back and says he's home and can I come get it. I drive 20 minutes to him and he hands me a box, says thank you for getting it out of his way and takes off.

I take it home and crack it open. This is what it contains:

MSI P6 SLI motherboard
Core 2 Duo 6700
XFX Radeon 3870
2 gigs G.Skill DDR2 memory
(crappy) Rosewill PSU
some sort of generic sound card
DVD drive
Edimax wireless Lan PCI card

oh yea...and a bunch of disks including a XP Pro install disk with the code

hmmmm.....the possibilities......

My brother in law is currently rocking a AMD 5200 with a nvidia 8600 (?). Amazingly enough, he has a brand new HDD and a Win7 that he never installed on his computer since he wanted to upgrade it all at one time. And, I have another 2GB of DDR2 ram sitting here doing nothing.

I called him and told him to come over. Sounds like we may have something nice for him to play with soon.....
