Hi folks, since I now have to finance another complete rebuild of my home server, I find myself having to put up my brand new built other server that I built and was going to host UT etc off for some m8s from the office.

Here is the spec:

Brand New Biostar M7NCD Nvidia Nforce 2 400 Motherboard, Onboard Sound, Onboard LAN, USB 2.0 etc..
Brand New AMD Athlon XP 2600+ 333 fsb CPU
Brand New Coolermaster summink 80MM Copper Core Silent Heatsink
Brand New Tekram Dual Channel SCSI 160 Controller
2xBrand New Crucial 256MB DDR333 Sticks (Works faster than Normal DDR400 on these boards)
1xBrand New Quantum Atlas 10KIII 10000 RPM 8MB cache SCSI 160 Drive
2xBrand New Fujitsu MAN3184MP 10000 RPM 8MB cache SCSI 160 Drives, running striped for your uber gaming pleasure ;)
Brand new Q-TEC 550W Power Supply
Brand New 52x Aopen CDROM Drive
Floppy Drive
Leadtek TNT2 M64 Graphics Card (Pap I know, but I don't have EVERYTHING!)
Industrial Strength Acer Altos Server chassis Enclosure. Low and beefy looking.

No keyboard, no mouse, no monitor, buyer sorts those himself :)

Also has a Mr F 'Near legendary' wiring job inside ;)

This machine is VERY quick and Very STABLE. I am gutted to let it go as she does look cool, but I need the cash.....

350 is an excellent price I think....


Nick :)

Edited to add 160 after the SCSI on the drives and the price...

Just to say that I think 350 is an excellent price when you take into consideration the fast high end SCSI setup especially, which is close to 450 alone!

With money, sexual favours don't count unless you have very good woman ;)

Firstly, where do you live? As i really am not into shipping stuff all over the place unless I have too, dunno what happens in transit :(

If you want, I should be able to take some pictures tonight. I have one other person considering her, but for closer to Chrimbo. I am back home for a month from the 12th of Dec till the 9th of Jan, so would like her gone before then tbh.

I haven't advertised her anywhere yet either.

But seen as toothBrush has the moeny ready, let him have it

Ill just save my money and buy my new mobo and ram 8-)

Pictures as promised, bear in mind the lack of 1 stick of ram and the cabling is 98% done:

28-11-2003, 08:10 AM

Mr Footlong
28-11-2003, 09:02 AM

Yep, Wubs machine was one of my legendary wiring jobs..... That back part was an absolute bitch to do....

28-11-2003, 12:22 PM
Baz ripped me at I17 cus of my wiring so for I18 i decided to tidy it up with some spiral rap but jinglys case was next to it and covered the window up.

All i saw was a green glow of the side of his case

28-11-2003, 07:14 PM
I would really just want the 3 hard drives, and seeing as you want the money so soon I'm not so sure I can cough it up ASAP. :evil:

Oh and I'm in West London!

Sorry m8. There is no way in hell that I am splitting up the machine at all.

I have 2 other ppl interested in the machines, but nothing confirmed yet.



Mr Footlong
28-11-2003, 07:18 PM

Mr Footlong
29-11-2003, 03:03 PM
