Looking to sell pc

  • Maybe its a problem that can be remedied by getting a new mobo or HD. That system is pretty good. Its on the high end of the computer spectrum. But if you must get a new computer.......if I were you, I would custom make a new computer than buy it premade from a company. Ive heard good things of Alienware, and only and bad story with their computers (a cpu wasnt installed correctly). --------------------- "I don´t know what the 3rd World War will be fought with, but the 4th will be fought with sticks and stones." - Albert Einstein

  • LOL If you are trying to sell something NEVER tell that you are havving problems with it, it could scare of potential buyers Mad Dog Is it alive?? -Yes Kill it!

  • Tachyon, I think it´s a very sad day when you want to sell that awesome computer...but I can understand your frustration. After recently upgrading myself, I´ve been made aware that Pentium processors are more stable for gaming. I´d be remise if I didn´t also say that my AMD processor is flyin´ "like the wind" and I have no regrets. So it´s all a matter of personal choice. Build your own, save big bucks and get EXACTLY what you want. You´re computer savvy enough to know that by now, and you´ve gotten very good at troubleshooting, maintaining, and configuring a computer. I just wish you better luck with a new computer.

  • Thanks Stinger <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> I could always just buy the parts and have the shop install them. I CAN do it, but there is a huge stress factor, because I can´t afford to zap a 300$ cpu/mb kit or something! I have also heard good things, from places like PCGamer. BTW, how do you not install a CPU correctly? Line up the corner, line up the pins, and stick it down <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> (At least that is the case with a Socket A) ========== Tachyon15 FG_Tachyon15 on the Zone ICQ: 23863366 ==========

  • You can handle it tachyon, go on custom build I say! I remember u saying u had probs with overheating and I think u mentioned a bit of overclocking too. Well if you´re confident enough to do that, then u can certainly screw in a mobo &amp; snap in a cpu and some ram<img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> I wouldn´t worry too much about zapping your chips, unless u like to rub your feet on carpet like a mad ferrit. Just make sure u ground yourself every minute or so. Best of luck.

  • Tachyon, here´s the deal. If you´ve never actually put a computer together from the bottom up, you´d be better served to let someone do it for you. Pay them too, they deserve it. Now, there´s nothing wrong with being involved in the process, that would be great if possible. There are LOTS of things to consider, flashing BIOS, properly installing fans on CPU´s without breaking the processor (They can be a &quot;female dog&quot; sometimes!!), making sure the jumpers are correct, MB spacers (I couldn´t resist) voltage set right, wiring hooked up right, etc. Just about every computer I´ve ever seen is unique in some way. Sure, there´s common traits, but there something is different about each of them. Buy your parts yourself (make darn sure everything is compatible before buying...research research research!), take them to someone local that will allow you to assist, or at least watch them. Be prepared for the unexpected (moneywise) and ask lots of questions. There´s no better time in the world to learn about hardware than when a computer is being built. If you sell your parts seperately, you might refray quite a bit of the cost of a new system. Hardware is predictable, software is NOT!
