I have an old PC for sale. Working fine, I was using most of the components until a week ago. It has a clean, fully updated install of Windows XP, and is ready to use.

Larger image at:

PC Specs:
Case: Unknown brand micro-ATX case.
PSU: CRS MPT-350 PMC-1350A 350W
Motherboard: Asus M2N-VM DVI
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+
RAM: 2GB (2*1GB) dual channel
HDD: 320GB 7200rpm SATA
Optical drive: LG GSA-4160B DVD+/-RW/RAM 
OS: Windows XP Home SP3

Known issues:
1. DVD-RW drive doesn't always open on first attempt. Always opens on second attempt. Sometimes makes a high-pitched squeal while reading/writing.
2. One of the PSU's SATA power cables is damaged. The other one is fine (and you can always use molex adaptors).

I was using the motherboard, CPU, RAM, HDD and DVD-RW until a week ago, without any problems.

The case dimensions are 356W*136H*381D. It has one external 5.25" bay, one external 3.5" bay, one internal 3.5" bay and two internal 2.5" bays. It also has front USB and audio underneath a panel. It works fine in both desktop and tower orientation. It also has 4 full-height expansion slots.

The case has a sticker with an OEM key for Windows XP Home. I used it to install XP Home and it activated without problems. I've installed all drivers and updates, and it's working fine.

This is a great little PC, more than fast enough for most use. Supports dual monitors (DVI/VGA), has extra RAM slots if you want to upgrade, etc. Runs Windows Vista and Windows 7 without issue as well.

I can add a floppy drive, modem, serial port, TV cards, extra USB ports or various other things. Just ask if you need them.

I'm after $250 for the PC only. I'll throw in some free speakers and an old 15" LCD + keyboard/mouse if you want them (not pictured). I'm happy to sell it with or without the below accessories.

The monitor is a 22.1" Chimei CMV 221D. Has one dead pixel in the upper right corner (barely noticeable), but fine other than that. I'd like $100 for that.

Keyboard/mouse set is a Microsoft Wired Desktop 600. After $20 for that.

I'd like $50 for the desk (pickup only).

I also have Office 97 and Office 2000,  1TB and 1.5TB external hard drives, and various other accessories for sale.

I'm located in St. Johns, Auckland if you want to pickup. I can ship if necessary, but pickup is preferred.

If you're interested, please message me. Otherwise this will be going up on trademe.

I've had a bit of flak for the $250 price, so I'm changing it.

$250 takes it now.

Otherwise, highest offer above $150 will take it. If I don't get $150 it'll go on trademe.

That's for the PC only.

I've also added the PSU model number.
