I am in the process of building up a new (old) family desktop on a wife friendly budget i.e. zero budget :( . So far I have managed to pick up a C2D Dell Optiplex 755 from TradeMe for a very sharp price complete with HDMI video card however i need to beef up the ram and add WiFi

What i am looking for is 2~4 sticks of DDR2-667 (or faster) PC2-5300 240pin, 2GB or greater and either a low profile PCI WiFi adapter or a USB WiFi adapter

On the assumption of one man's junk is another man's treasure, I am hoping to do a trade of sorts;

I have an old Dell laptop (N5010 15R i3) with a suspected dead video card of which some of the parts may be of use to somebody;

2x 2GB SODIMM, DDR3L (Samsung Part No. M471B5773CHS-CH9), Don't quote me on this but i believe these are suitable for NUC's
Broadcom 4313 DW1501 WLAN 802.11n Mini Pci-e card
DVD Writer, internal Part: TS-L633
90w AC Adapter LA90PE1-01

Basically I have the complete laptop which other than dead video card and no HDD (I have already re-purposed)was in good condition and good working order. Replacing the motherboard would have it going again but spending maybe $250 for something maybe worth $400 going just doesn't make sense to me

If someone is in a position to donate the parts I require without requiring anything in return i will happily donate the equivalent to other needy members of the GZ fraternity :P

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.
