A while ago I bought an HP SFF PC cheap because it was a great deal (actually 3...one for my TV, one for my grandparents, and this one). I stripped this one of its 2x4gb ram and 3770 to add to/upgrade my main desktop. Since that time it has been sitting in my storage room. Apparently it needs to be removed from the storage room.
Time to piece together a basic box to sell in order to recoup some $. Pretty slim pickings in my PC spare parts department (compared to some of you), however I have 2x2gb ram and an intel 120gb ssd that are both collecting dust and likely never to be used again, so they are perfect. Off to ebay (which I honestly rarely ever use), and I am getting a cheap i3 to fill the last piece of the puzzle. If I was keeping it I would have opted for an i5 (just because), however i3 are dirt cheap by the nature of everyone upgrading away from them. Also, it will be perfectly fine for a basic box.
Once I get the i3 it should be a great general purpose browsing box. Fingers crossed it goes together without a hitch, and that I can then find a buyer.
