My System Specs


I know it is frowned upon to post in for sale threads if you have no intention of buying but I just want to say a quick word that could potentially raise the level of interest in this item.
If it is just the seemingly extremely common PAV board failure then the mobo and other guts *should* be fine. It is possible to remove the mobo, wire it up to an ATX PSU and mount it in an ATX/AT/etc case and use an external display with it. One can also mount an LCD and ATX PSU in the original case if you remove the CRT and PAV board.
Either way you will need to do a bit if surgery but there are plenty of guides on this topic. (Be sure not to confuse a tray loading iMac with a slot loading iMac, they are extremely different on the inside.)

By the way, if someone does buy this and is handy with a soldering iron think you could see how far the CPU will overclock?
