so, i came across an old alienware desktop that i may be pickup tomorrow morning for $100. im not expecting greatness out of this, just hoping its a bit faster than the shitty dell desktop that i have now (its a fleet desktop with bare bones everything. i mean everything). but, heres the ad that he has up: had to get a new desktop to meet my needs so i have this sitting around. I bought this a couple years ago when comp USA went out of buisness in cool springs. It was used as a Floor model so i bought it as is. It works great, its fast but some of the components are a bit outdated so The performance aspects wont run windows 7 perfectly/smoothly. (tried it for awhile). It will however work perfect with windows xp and play games and videos great. Ill get detailed info on the hardware in the morning and i will get a few pics up. I will reformat the hard drives and install windows xp with the alienware themes before i sell it. I will include 2 hard drives, one is a 60 gig which i will install xp on, and i have a 300 gig i used to store music and stuff (slave). -Has 1 gig ram, -60 and 300 gig hard drives, -450w power supply, -3 cd drives (one doesnt work) -floppy drive, -4 cpu fans, -extra usb card (8 usbs total), -soundblaster sound card, -pentium4 processor. -blue alienware keyboard. -Radeon 9200 graphics card and a -lan card for high speed internet., -has a tv tuner card. The bad- It doesnt have side cover nor the front cover. i bought it like that, hasnt affected its performance in the 2 years ive had it. cosmetic only if you have any questions, just send me a message and ill answer them asap. thanks worth $100? im not too worried about the missing case pieces, this thing is just going to be tucked away under the desk, will try to rig something up for the side though, im assuming that that being gone would affect the cooling a bit considering the air from the fans would just be blowing out the side instead of around the components. anybody know anything about these? i know shit about computers, and even less about alienware. can i upgrade just the processor? or would i have to get a whole new board? potentially wanting to use this in the future to do some recording on.
