Unfortunately P4's are past their use-by date as such, I also picked up a P4 2.4 with 2gb RAM and 80gb hdd for free last week - paid $20 for a 7600GT vid card to go into it.

Can I just ask why it has such an odd sized HDD ? :) Or is it meant to be 80GB HDD formatted to 74GB ? :)

Man technology depreciation/obsolescence is depressing!
Ill drop the price for the remainder of the auction and see if I get any bites, then I might swap out the goodish parts (HDD & GPU) and sell the case and guts for $1 res.

The HDD was just on special so I got it, its 808.8GB on the label and works out to ~750gb formatted. Ask western digital why lol

Ah right, 750 makes more sense :D

And yeah, its scary how fast tech depreciates these days. Id be happy with a basic dual core CPU at the moment, and most people laugh at me :-p
