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 
  have time.

- 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.
