    This should be in the classifieds, but no one would notice and this is my target audience.

    I'm looking to build a cheap file server. I just scored a free Micron P2 266mhz system with 64mb sd100 memory, 3gb harddrive, 10/100 network card, sound card, cd, floppy, and zip. Also got a newer 17" Gateway monitor. Pretty much all I wanted out of it all was the monitor, keyboard, mouse, case, psu, cd, and floppy. I'm looking for a free or very cheap P3 cpu and motherboard to put in. I've got XP running on the system for now (until I get Server 2003 next week) and it's killing the system.

    Does anyone have some stuff they're looking to get rid of? I need at least a 500mhz cpu, but preferabbly better. This system is going to have a large harddrive thrown in and be my dvd burn & download box, in addition to housing all my music and videos. Any time I'm copying movies, it takes up my whole system, so I want another machine to do some of the grunt work.

    What I'm looking for that I know you guys have laying around, not being used: DVD drive, P3 and motherboard or AMD Athlon cpu and motherboard, and sd100/133 ram.

    I will pay shipping costs, and if it's actualy decent parts, some extra cash. I've also go stuff to trade. Namely a Linksys 10/100 5 port switch, video card, etc. Nothing special.

    Again, I'm not looking to build a high or mid range computer. Just something that'll run Server 2003. Let me know what you want to get rid of.

    I have a Duron 800 sitting here doing nothing and a badass cooling fan to match.

    That switch has got my interest. Let me know what other goodies you have to trade.

    I've got a perfect Celeron 366 that I've modded to run at 550 in any motherboard (5.5x100). I don't have any more good Socket 370 boards anymore, so I could send it your way.

    I've got a Socket A Soyo Dragon Platinum KT400 board (nice board) but it takes DDR ram.

    I'll poke around and see what all I have.

    I have a Dell Precision 220:

    Dual Xeon 1ghz
    512mb Rambus RDRAM
    40gig HD
    Quatro4 700 XGL graphics card

    If you're interested, shoot me an offer, although I'm not going to let it go super cheap, it is still useful to me as a second render box.

    I think he made it pretty clear that he's not really looking to pay for any of this stuff.

    I'll be sending you that board next week Nate
