My System Specs

Default HTPC combo...

What would be the interest for this combo:?

ASUS M2A-VM mATX Motherboard
AMD Athlon 3600+ Dual Core 1.8 Ghz Processor with stock AMD heatsink
4GB (4x1GB sticks) DDR2 Crucial Ballistix RAM
ASUS HD5450 Silent GPU.

This rig would be next to useless for playing games, I mean, it can play Angry Birds without breaking a sweat, but don't expect it to run Crysis. On the other hand, it is perfect for decoding pretty much any kind of media. As a media/web surfing machine, it's pretty damn good. I have a Hyper 212+ heatsink with one low RPM fan cooling the CPU. Other than the powersupply, that is the only fan in the case, and it's pretty much inaudible.

Anyways, thinking of asking $60 plus shipping for the lot, plus shipping (about $10). Any interest?
