    WIW: My rig.....

    Just like the title says. I plan on buying a laptop to replace my current computer. I use it as a gaming PC.

    -AMD 3000+ (OCed to 2.5ghz)
    -Epox 9NPA7I nForce 4x
    -2gigs RAM 3200 (1xCorsairXMS,1xKingston HyperX, 2x Corsair Value)
    -2x 80gig WD80JB HDDs configured in Raid1 Mirror array
    -200gig Maxtor HDD
    -nVidia Geforce 6600 GPU w/256mb RAM
    -Sound Blaster Live 5.1!
    -Linksys WirelessG PCI
    -NEC 3502 DVDRW
    -Samsung CDRW
    -Ahanix BlackKnight Case
    -ThermalTake 430watt PSU
    -Legal XP Pro license

    This system runs GREAT. I have been able to overclock the RAM (up to 220mhz), and CPU (up to 2.5ghz) without a problem. The PSU is powerful enough to handle a card like a Sapphire 1950GT which is what I planned on getting, but changed my mind as I'll explain later. The CPU is cooled by an Asus Chiller HSF which is very quiet.

    This PC is capable of running Oblivion, and STALKER at mid-low settings (playable).

    The reason I'm selling it is because I'm going back to school to study Civil Engineering. It is a demanding degree and I've been systematically selling off all of my videogames and all I'm left with are my PC games and PS2 games. The PC games are prohibiting me from concentrating on AutoCAD. SO, I'm looking for a laptop that is capable of handling AutoCAD as well as some light games (but I have my PS2, which I enjoy playing). I just need to get my priorities straight and by getting rid of the things that prevent me from doing it helps out a lot.

    I'm hoping to sell the PC as a whole so that it can help with paying for my laptop.

    I'm hoping to get at least $400 from it. Is that way too low? I'm willing to throw in most of my PC Games.

    Well now that I started classes today I'm more serious about getting a laptop.

    Selling the PC will help a lot.

    ya I agree $400 is about right, the drives and the 2 gb ram up the value, otherwise it would be about 300. would sell the games separately, what titles do you have ?
