I'm looking for a new home for a hardly-used three year old PC. No hard drive. it has the best case I've ever used and the RAM has seen no use at all. 


Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout ATX Mid Tower Black Gaming Case (SGC-2000-KKN1-GP) see it here:


INTEL CORE i7 920 D0 (SLBEJ) Quad Core 2.66GHz ** Was Overclocked to 3.2GHz **
COOLER MASTER V8 120mm (Core i7 ready) CPU Cooler with PWM + VR controller
G.SKILL (PC-12800) 16GB  RAM


INTEL EXTREME BOXDX58SO Smackover 1600FSB Intel X58 Tri-Channel DDR3 CrossFire/SLI LGA1366
XFX HD-489A-ZDFC Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI-E 2.0 x16 CF Ready
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W ATX2.0 Dual Rail 120mm Modular Silent Power Supply

This is in great working condition except that one RAM slot failed. Intel accepted it for return and replacement but wanted me to pay the cost for couriering the motherboard to Singapore and that, frankly, was too much expense for me to be bothered with. So, if you want to use it as is, you will have only 12GB RAM available. 

It's an old machine and while it may appeal as a complete system for someone (and its pretty grunty - even handling most games acceptably) it's value is probably more for parts or other uses. 

I'm totally realistic about its worth so if you want it for any purpose don't be shy about making an offer.

Please contact me by PM only - thanks.

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. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.
