Before you give this newb anything make sure you see his helping hands in action to help the great forum, I have seen some very charismatic newb's on here who just bent long time forum members over and went to town, so I would not give greatness to a 4 poster till you see if he is the real deal.

but thats just my 2 cents

i have a GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 i would be willing to donate. used for 3 months. works perfect. have the box and accessories.

i'd rather give it somebody to use rather than letting it sit in my closet until it becomes obsolete.

pm me the address. if you want to reimburse me for shipping, i think it's like $13 coming from the us, that would be cool but, not required. you can wait until you receive it.

maybe another forum member could cough up a processor and/or memory. that's a challenge fellas!!!

i am more of an ask and ye shall receive kinda guy.

don't care much if he does anything for it. i would much rather see him do something with it.

maybe just having the board will inspire him to obtain the rest of the parts.

You are indeed right, although I just mention AOE2 since its one of my favourite PC games of all time! Plus its also one of the only ones I could ever run.

I see where your coming from and I do understand that I'm premature in asking anything of this community.

I see exactly where your coming from and understand the hostility. Nothing is free and I understand people just don't give handouts! I also understand that I am a newby posting in these great forums.

The thing is where I was coming from was the idea that this could be a cool experiment to try and see if it could be done with myself logging it the whole time. This would be my sort of jump start contribution to the forums. As it stands now I really have nothing to offer this community except for this experiment. I would love to help and contribute to this community but as it stands right now I'm very inexperienced and don't know how much I can offer. This project is meant to give me give me insight into building PC's and gain knowledge so I can contribute.

As for the community service idea I see what your saying and think its a reasonable idea I will get back to you on it. But right now I do work full time. If you know other ways in which I can contribute to the forums and this community I'm all ears and willing to do anything!

Like I said this is also meant to give me PC building experience. Right now I have none, but the knowledge and know how I do have, but that's not good enough to put on a resume, I need some real hands on experience. My job is ending soon and I hope to apply to local computer repair and retail shops, but as I've learned from inquiring with these places and with this community is that they like to see hands on stuff. Right now I'm unable to gain this experience on my own and with my budget, thus the reason for this Idea.

Again I'm very willing to help this community in any way I can!

I think soul gave you the best advice anyone could for getting a system thats going to play anything modern at decent fps..
You may need a lil more info about whats in your area but he has hit the nail on the head..

Alternatively you can stand on the side of the street with a sign saying "Will work for computer parts"
Your right! and fair dues to wire for sure! This will be an amazing jump start!

I have been inquiring in my local area and on Kijiji and CS but there is already a tone of posts like that on there and I thought I could turn this into a cool experiment! one that I can log and show a possible future employer.

Your right about the processor but I'm thinking that maybe if this gets enough traction and I have everything else someone super generous like wirerogue might come along and help me finish it off! or i'll have to do something special and earn it.
