Selling some techno-gadgets  
I gots computer parts! I will try selling them now (here and on Craigslist), and in a month I will try selling them at UCSC, and after that I will sell them on eBay. I'm selling everything for at least half as much as I got them for. Prices are negotiable.

Microtek C586p 15" LCD monitor, with VGA output only. 1024x768. It makes a nice secondary monitor, although it might be slightly dim in comparison to other LCDs. It's got a scratch on its gray border but that's purely cosmetic. $75 OBO.

Kingston 512MB DDR333 (PC2700) SDRAM of which I have two. They're fine sticks of RAM which have served me well for a few years. I recently memtested them and they're completely fine. Great supplementary RAM for any desktop that's a few years old or more. $40 each OBO.

AMD Athlon XP 2600+. A great upgrade for any slower Athlon XP, and it works fine. Still is fine for day-to-day use, and even lets you play modern games pretty well. $50 OBO.

ASUS nVidia GeForce4 MX 4000. An utterly baseline AGP video card with 64MB VRAM, but has DVI, VGA, and composite video output - so if you're looking for dual display action, here's your ticket. I bought it as a cheap replacement, and unless you're doing anything related to gaming or other high-end stuff, it's a nice step above integrated video for older computers. $10 OBO.

Generic GeForce4 MX 4000. A video card I got back in 2003. Works fine. AGP, 128MB VRAM, with DVI, VGA, and S-Video output. Why was I using the previous card instead? Because I thought this one was broken, but it turns out it was my motherboard that was (which, of course, I am not selling). Although quite baseline it's got more video memory, so it might be slightly more suited for gaming, etc. $20 OBO.

Thermaltake Polo735 heatsink and fan. It's utterly massive but gets the job done, with a dense copper base and a very strong fan. Has a temp sensor, but also comes with a knob that can be attached to your case's 2.5" (floppy) port to manually control it - that's what I did, because it can get pretty loud cooling down an Athlon XP 2600+. Can mount onto K7, K8, and P4 systems, from what I can tell. $20 OBO.

If you're local (Bay Area), I will help install any of these components for an extra $5 to $10. If you're not local, we can talk about shipping, etc.

Can you tell me what OBO stands for?

or best offer

I assume the GeForce4 4000s are better than the GeForce2 MX 200? If so, you've got a customer.
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on August 17th, 2006 05:51 pm (UTC)
Yes it is. The $20 is sold, though, so if you'd like the $10 one (still better than the GeForce2), then cool.

Would you want me to ship it to you or wait until school starts?
Anonljofthatfellow on August 17th, 2006 06:39 pm (UTC)
I'll be in scruz in two weeks, so might as well save money and wait till then.
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on August 17th, 2006 07:47 pm (UTC)
It'll be another month for me, so I'll give it to you when I move in.
Anonljofthatfellow on August 17th, 2006 10:23 pm (UTC)
in that case, how much does shipping cost?
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on August 17th, 2006 10:24 pm (UTC)
How about $5.
Anonljofthatfellow on August 17th, 2006 10:49 pm (UTC)
Can I pay you when we get back to school? I have no card to transfer money from you see.
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on August 17th, 2006 11:05 pm (UTC)
No bank account either?

And yeah you can pay later. Gimme and address and I'll ship it out.
Anonljofthatfellow on August 17th, 2006 11:17 pm (UTC)
you've got mail.

Is that LCD monitor like the flat kind that doesn't take up a bunch of space? If so, I am interested.
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on August 17th, 2006 09:28 pm (UTC)
Yeah, LCD's are flat-screens. CRT's are the boxy kind no one uses anymore.

I'm in Marin so if you'd like I could deliver it to you whenever.
brienhopkinsbrienhopkins on August 18th, 2006 06:02 am (UTC)
Great, but whats VGA output only mean? Also, "makes a nice secondary monitor"? What kind of primary monitor does it make?
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on August 18th, 2006 06:06 am (UTC)
VGA is the standard analog connection for monitors. This is what it looks like:


You have it. If you have a CRT monitor now, then you most definitely have a VGA port.

It also makes a good first monitor - I just personally used it as a secondary monitor since I have a bigger primary one.
brienhopkinsbrienhopkins on August 19th, 2006 04:11 am (UTC)
Can you let it go for 60 dollars? My cell phone number is 419-4479
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on August 19th, 2006 03:15 pm (UTC)
Other people are already offering $75 for it, so no.
brienhopkinsbrienhopkins on August 19th, 2006 05:40 pm (UTC)
$75.00 it is.
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on August 20th, 2006 01:31 am (UTC)
Yallrighty. Are you still in SR?
brienhopkinsbrienhopkins on August 20th, 2006 01:40 am (UTC)
