I'm after a LCD monitor - this is for a PC build I've done (for near free) that will be given to somebody who doesn't have and can't afford a computer. Ideally something widescreen, 1080p as the computer will be used for InDesign / Photoshop.

 

Also after 8gb (or more) of DDR3 desktop ram.

 

If you've got anything laying around that'll work let me know. Can pick up in Wellington.

If you can't find a widescreen, I'm 100% sure I can find you a 17" or maybe even a 19" 4:3 LCD. Let me know.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

My old desktop is about to go under the (sledge) hammer and it's screen is available to a good home (free).  It's an old (maybe circa 2007?) Chimei CMV 221D.  According to https://www.cnet.com/products/chimei-221d-silver-black-22-5ms-widescreen-lcd-monitor/specs/ its native resolution is 1680x1050 if that's any help.

 

Am in Kapiti but coincidentally we are coming in to Wgtn for a dinner at 6 p.m.  Let me know if it's of interest.
