Default Free old computer towers

Well, it's Spring, so it's Spring cleaning and I need to get rid of these space-hogging old towers.

Essentially a rundown of what the two towers are:

One is a Pentium III Katmai (I think I OCed it to 450 or 500mhz), other is a Pentium Celeron (I think OCed it to 400 to 450mhz).

- Both in the fairly old, ugly AT form factor with those massive, bland towers.
- Both are AGP, but will include a ATI Rage 128 card
- Both include a 8GB HDD
- Both include CD-Rom Drives
- Both include ram (PIII has 512mb and PCel has 384mb)
- Both include PSU
- Both have their share of damage (nothing major or obstructs the functionality of them)

Essentially, just useless, old, working towers which you could possibly use for Asterix or PFSense.

Seeing as it's free, you gotta pick it up yourself or pay for shipping (In Vancouver).

Gonna give this stuff maybe a 3 day deadline before I go ahead and just throw them to the E-waste Recycling wolves (where they'll strip it down and take all the "useful" parts out).

As free stuff doesn't require a picture, not going to put one but will on request if you want.

he actually wants 2 8gb HDDs? o.O Well, whatever floats his boat, but he's gotta contact me asap. Most likely it's just a waste of effort to dban them, but we'll see.

HaDeS, i'll wait until 12pm PST tomorrow for your response from braineater. To anyone else, this thread is officially closed as my patience has run out on these machines and they'll go to an eco-friendly e-waste recycling centre (aka FreeGeekVancouver).
