Yesterday supaflyx3 linked me to a posting about a family in need from Fort Mac looking to build a low cost system for their son after he lost his computer to the fire so he could talk to his friends online during this shitty time.
So I contacted the father and he ended up just being a awesome guy who really cared about his son.
I looked around my spare hardware and noticed I had 2 gutted Dell precisions from a bulk of systems I got a few months back.
The first one was in good shape but had no cpu or ram and the second one was in good shape but had no gpu or ram.
I hunted through all my junk and spare bins and found all the following.
12gb ecc 1066 ddr3
Intel w3565 quad core same as i7 960
Few junk gpus but Oelmuvun gave me a gtx 460 a few months back with a ghetto cooler. So I am sending the wife to grab a cheap aftermarket gpu cooler for it today.
Put dual 320gb hdds in
And tonight I think I'll upgrade the psu as well.
Also giving him a spare 22" lcd
A almost new in box madcats headset as well.
Loaded 7 as there was a key on the case and did the free upgrade to 10.
Tonight it's major dusting and new compound time.
If I had a good jigsaw I would make a side window but I won't have time for that sadly.
So I think this is the third rhr donation system since we started and though it's not a power house it is more then enough to get into some gaming
