    Wink Ubuntu PC and monitor for sale

    I live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area of Minnesota in the U.S., so unless you want to pay a lot on packing and shipping (the local UPS store would do it all), you may want to be local.

    I built this PC about 2 years ago, with the following specs:

    - MSI 785G-E53 motherboard
    - Amd Athon II X4 640 quad-core processor (3ghz)
    - 16gb memory
    - nVidia chipset GeForce 9500 GT/PCI/SSE2 graphics card (if I remember correctly it's a Zoltac branded card)
    - SATA DVD-RW/DL
    - SATA 250gb hard disk Western Digital WD2500AAJS-65M0A0
    - HP S2031 20" LCD monitor (less than 6 months old)
    - I have an extremely cheap keyboard and mouse on it right now since I migrated the old keyboard and mouse to my new system - you can have them, but don't expect much!
    - has Ubuntu 11.10 installed - I would do a fresh install before sale and get it up to date on patches
    - PCI wireless (Trendnet??)

    Asking $325, will meet locally in public place for any testing and sale.

    Thanks for looking!

    I also put this PC on Ebay - opening bid $200, buy it now of $325. If not local, shipping to continental U.S. only, and the shipping will be $100. I'll have The UPS Store package and ship it, and it cost me close to $40 through them just to ship a laptop out to my elderly parents in Arizona. So I know the shipping may seem high, but it will be professionally packed and shipped, and obviously the shipment will be insured.

    I had no takers on EBay, and obviously no one here. So....

    Flat $200 + $100 shipping (that's not negotiatable).

    If no takers in a week I'll just close this and keep it as a 2nd system. Truth of the matter is that it runs faster than my new PC anyway (new PC is 8-core AMD FX8120, the processor in this system is an AMD Athlon II X4 640 quad-core, 3ghz per core).

    Re: Ubuntu PC and monitor for sale

    One last chance - price reduced to $150, but the shipping is still $100 and not negotiable. Continental U.S. only. I have some medical bills to pay, and the money would be nice, but I don't need to sell it, so this is as low as I can go - I know it's worth that. Works fine.
