Default 200 dollar gaming machine? yes!

hehe, I came across a deal today I couldn't refuse.

19inch Viewsonic VX922

E6600 (B2 rev. which i've clocked to 3ghz 333x9 1.26vcore)
Evga 680i sli
Evga 8800GTS 640mb G80
2x1GB Corsair DDR2 1066
1x74GB Raptor
2x250GB WD drives in raid 0
Antec Sonata with Antec TP3-550
And a samsung sh-182m

Not a bad little box in my opinion, especially for the price! Haven't decided what to do with it so far, but I think it may end up as an HTPC/File Server. It was dirty as hell inside, so I took a good two hours to clean it out, re-wire and reseat the heatsink.
Its some zalman hs (not the cnps9500), but I think i'll end up replacing it soon as its a tad on the hot side.

Just wanted to share

Holy crap. That's a hell of a deal.

If you're using it for a fileserver I'd sell that video card though. No sense sucking an extra 100+ watts out of wall 24\7 for nothing. I put together an Athlon 64 fileserver recently with a crappy old Geforce 2 MX to make sure it doesn't generate too much heat or use much power.

I ordered a wireless keyboard/mouse for this and I picked up two wireless 360 controllers for it.
I think I may put this in the living room, so I can play some games with the 360 controllers and it'll serve nicely as a "console replacement/htpc."

Lego Indy and Lego Batman are installed, I'm gonna install Fifa09 once it arrives in the mail and any other two player game that I can think of and get away with using the 360 controllers to play with.

All in all, i'm very happy with this purchase

I didn't ask who's it was, or why so cheap, I just gave her the cash and left.

2GB of ram is more than enough for what its use will be.

It was like a middle aged women, maybe in her 40s~early 50s and it was a yard sale/garage sale.

Dunno, don't care.

Not the best attitude to have, but
