Pentium 4s are annoying so I'm offloading mine to a good home - make me an offer! But I'll keep my monitor, keyboard and mouse to give to a friend for Christmas.


Pentium 4 3.2Ghz Prescott processor 800Mhz FSB
i915G Intel chipset
40Gb Hard drive

It's got eight USB ports, good sound card, CD-ROM, Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet. It's also still under warranty for the next two and a half years (I've only had it since June).

Have a look at the markets if you wish but PM me only if you have a serious offer for this.

What sort of CD-Rom? Is it a read only? Can it write to CDs? Does it have the capacity to play DVDs? Burn DVDs?

Well if it could write CDs, he probably would have said "CD Writer", and if it could play DVDs, he probably would have said "DVD-Rom". A CD-ROM just reads CDs (ROM=Read Only Memory).

Hi pax, thank you for you comment.

I would like to point out that Mr Duf...errr Comrade Zukovsky also stated that: "Hey I'm no genius."

Which would suggest to me that perhaps he may have been unaware of the full capabilities of his machine.

Furthermore, it is unlikely that such a wizbang modern machine would be oringinally sold with only a lowly CD-ROM Read Only drive, and if the current owner were in possesion of a modified machine, he would at least know that he paid to have the CD-ROM upgraded to a CD writer, or to a DVD player and or Burner.

The computer is as stated.... its a cd-rom drive. Read the specs, which are taken from a web-page. I am perfectly aware of what the machine is, but I'm not knowledgeable about everything , ie voltages and shit.
If you gronks aren't interested then maybe don't bother commenting.

Dare I say "All Your Base Are Belong To Us"? :)

If you don't like non sequiturs, try Googling the quote ;)
