Hey guys,

 

trying to set up my mate a gaming system with scrounged parts. Unfortunately the C2D system I retired and then handed him that I reckoned might've been on it's last legs was in fact on it's last legs, and doesn't do much of anything anymore.

 



 

SO. I'm looking to pick up some parts for as cheap as I can scrounge 'em.

 


 

Main things I'm aiming for at the moment are a motherboard, and compatible processor, the cheaper the better, but also would be of great benefit if it was some sort of semi-modern quad core (Talking Core ix, or Phenom onwards), a bit of suitable RAM (I doubt I'll find this much cheaper than retail), ideally 2x2GB or 2x4GB, but 1x4GB could fly.

 

Other parts like tidy cases (would have to be in the Waikato, as posting cases is crazy), power supplies, et al also couldn't hurt.

 

 

 

Let me know if you have anything you think you could shuffle off on me.

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.
