Default Re: Your Best Dumpster Finds

A client wanted to get rid of the following in 2006 as he wanted to upgrade everything to dual core technology.
1x Gigabyte GA-8iPE1000-G mobo complete with P4 3.0Ghz Prescott CPU
1x Gigabyte GA-8i848P-G mobo complete with P4 3.0Ghz Prescott CPU

And then last year I picked up a PIII 800Mhz PC with 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD, Pioneer DVR-107D DVDRW, 32MB graphics card, Microsoft keyboard and of course a 17" LG Studioworks CRT display...... this was from the block of townhouses around the corner from my place. I was walking home from school one day and I saw two women trolley these items out to the car park area of the townhouses. I waited for them to go back inside and then my brother and I ran over to the pile and picked up everything. A short while later we came back and picked up a Laserjet 5L and a DVD player and everything worked well so we were all happy, but the computer tower had bad caps, a quick an easy fix solved that issue.

And finally.... on the way to lunch about 2 years ago I also picked up an Acer Veriton 5200D ATX case which was in very good condition.
