Default [PC] HAF932; old PC

1st gen, which means gray interior and usb 2.0 front panel. bought it like a week after launch. mint condition with no scratches. I have everything it came with minus the wheels (wish I could find 'em, I know they're in a box somewhere). It's a good case, but I'm bored with it and would like to buy something new.

Probably a local sale since shipping for it would be ridiculous. I did a search and someone said $125, which to me seems high, considering it was close to that NEW, 4 years ago. But I wouldn't complain.:P


Also have an old PC I'd like to unload, since it's been my "backup" for almost a year, and has yet to be powered on for anything.

c2d e6750 under a Xigmatek s1283. Has been overclocked, obviously.
4gb Buffalo Firestix DDR2 1066
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
Coolermaster 500w
Coolermaster Elite 330 case (or something)
Pioneer DVR-111L (very nice NEC chipset drive; shame it's not SATA)
No OS, but I have several spare, legit copies of XP. It current has Win8 on it.

It currently has a 200GB IDE HD and a fanless Radeon HD5450. I could swap in a Seagate 250GB SATA drive; would that really be worth it? I'm currently using the drive as a download drive in my PC, but it's not essential. I also have my old 8800GT that seems like a prime candidate for the baking fix (the usual sudden onset severe artifacting). I'm not sure how I'd feel selling a "fixed" video card, though, and of course there's no guarantee. Again, is it worth the effort of repairing it?

I'd estimate that without the SATA HD and 8800, it's around $200-250 or so. With, maybe $300+?


Edit: one more item, if you don't mind.:D
GTX470...runs stable at 750 mhz core. Worth anything at all? I'd like to either find it a mate or get something faster. Have been searching local ads for months and have yet to find any 470s.

125 sounds deluded, I would think 75 picked up.

Maybe 200 for the PC as is, baked 8800gt adds little value imo, same with the HD.

470 maybe 120ish? 500 series cards are diving so 400's are quite low.

My System Specs


Yeah the Haf-932 is only like $149 new, I'm thinking $75-$80 IF its mint. I would say put the 470 int the PC and sell for $300. Not sure how much I'd charge or pay for a baked GPU, I've done it a number of times to t41 laptop GPU's and it never lasted for long.

There are so many things that I don't understand.
There's a world within me that I cannot explain.
Many rooms to explore, but the doors look the same.
I am lost I can't even remember my name.
