I've recently upgraded my PC, the Mrs has got my Phenom based system, so her's is for sale if anyone is interested (if not I'll keep it for the kids ;-) )   I'll confirm all the parts and put up photos if anyone wants. It hasn't been running for a few weeks so before selling I'll also put it through the paces (prime95, memtest, check SMART, etc)  if anyone is interested. 

Currently it has:

Asus P5B deluxe
C2D E7600
6GB GSkill PC6400 RAM (2x2GB, 2x1GB all 4-4-4-12 I think)
Seagate 250GB SATA HDD 
Geforce 7500 LE 
Antec Three Hundred case
Thermaltake 500W PSU
LG DVD writer

No OS but I could put Ubuntu or Windows 8 evaluation version on it if you want (I think it'll run Windows 8 fine - it was running windows 7 with no issues for a long time)

Runs fine as is, but if you put an SSD and decent graphics card in even better - it has been running Win7 great with a vertex 3 and HD5770; not selling them though.

Not really sure what it's worth so open to offers.

In Auckland, Mt Eden area.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

Any interest in this if I include an 8800GTX with HR-03 cooler in the mix? It was faulty (red artefacts) but I since baked it which fixed that issue and is working perfectly fine now.

Feel free to make an offer; I won't be offended.

If you really want me to put down a ballpark figure, somewhere around mid $200s? but yeah totally negotiable with sound reasoning :)

I'll include the 8800GTX and the 7500 as a spare GPU. Also I can include a spare CPU (if I can find it! :) ) - I think it's an E6400 which was upgraded to the E7600.

and I *may* be able to supply it with Vista installed + vista disk ,etc if that will sway anyone... Will have to check if I can find disk - that's what was on it originally.

(Would also consider splitting up if there was interest in parts...)

This is still available if anyone's interested; With the 8800GTX GPU installed and 7500LE as a backup.

I found the Vista disk and reinstalled that on it and all is running well; so this comes with Vista Home Premium full installed and the dvd\box\coa sticker for it.

I also put steam on it and grabbed a couple of game demos to test it (MotoGP13 and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger - they happened to be recent releases on steam) Played them both for a while and it still games well even at 1920x1200!

Finally got round to taking some pictures, including the 8800GTX Windows Exp Index with current parts:
