    Wanted a Intel Pentium 4 processor Socket 478

    something that's over 2.0 and it does not have to be a hyper threaded type.

    Intel P4-Northwood 2.53G 533 OK

    Intel P4-Northwood 2.8G 533 OK


    I am building a computer from some bits to be given away to a pensioner
    so he can get onto the net in the main.

    Or if you have a cheap MB and CPU Ill consider that as well.

    my email if you have anything - photoptic at gmail dot com

    no I don't want to start on ebay to much of a buyers nightmare and its
    only ebay that makes the profit.

    Thanks

    Why bother when you can buy a complete ex Gov P4 2.4Ghz Compaq with keyboard
    and optical mouse for under $200 complete with licensed Win XP, 512Mb RAM,
    40Gb HD. Add a free monitor and away you go.

    Thats how I got my kids machine.

    Cheers.

    Here in Canberra at the weekend PC markets. I bought mine from the CIT Woden
    market.

    Most capital cities have similar markets and a few of the sellers will have
    similar secondhand items for sale.

    Cheers.

    There are some here as well but all I've seen there are heaps of c**p
    and over priced. These people also have parts which are priced, like ram
    sticks at 2/3 full, if you need to take something back they never there
    next time.

    You may have a better class of hawker down there, we certainly don't here.

    I'll sell you (or anyone else) a working Tower.
    A Pentium 4, 3.00 with 1 gig of 400 RAM (2, 512 sticks) a liquid
    cooled heatsink with heavy duty power supply. An 80 GIG drive, a
    Radeon display card. A52x CD burner installed. keyboard, optical mouse
    and network card for $300. Linux if you want but no Windows.

    If you want a 19" (Samsung) LCD screen it's an extra $100.
    Pick up from Brisbane or buy it off eBay later in the week. (It'll
    probably fetch $550 on eBay incidentally)

    I'm sure I've got some 2.4GHz 478 Celerons at work. You are welcome
    to one if it will do the job for you

    It seems I've thrown a lot of them out but still have a 2.53 Celeron
    and a couple of 2.66 Celerons which I'm never going to use.

    Often "not supported" simply means that it hasn't been tested and I
    can't see any reason it wouldn't work. If you want to try it email me
    (remove the spam traps) your postal address and I'll post one this
    afternoon.

    I still actively buy and use DDR RAM so don't have any spare.
