I got an interesting Home Theatre PC from freecycle a while ago.
(Not precisely correct)
- I've never gotten it to work but I didn't try very hard. I just don't
- the previous owner didn't get it to work. I don't know how hard they
- I'm including a CPU that I got for it from craigslist. I am only
assuming that the CPU works. 3GHz P4 LGA775
- the CPU is a P4, not my favourite choice for a HTPC
- it includes a bunch of nice things: nice case, dual TV tuner, nVidia
GeForce 6600 video card, notebook DVD burner, lots of cables.
- it is missing RAM and HD.
- the cards are on a riser, with one common backplate so it is awkward to
remove them and use them in another machine
- I've taken out the miniPCI wireless card.
I would love to hand this on to someone who intends to try to get this
If nobody wants it as a whole, I'll consider giving away parts.
I expect to wait about 24 hours for "bids". No, I don't mean money --
this is free.
