    Price Check: HTPC System (Lovely)

    Hi folks, would like a price check on the folllowing please:

    Individual prices or as a system, thanks!

    Case: Chieftec HE01-SL Aluminium ATX HTPC Case with VFD but no Remote or accessories, everything installed properly. Will include a MCE remote and receiver, I think it's a Microsoft one but not sure, so don't quote me, looks alike.
    CPU: Intel E5200
    M/B: Asus P5N32-E SLI (Nvidia 680i chipset)
    RAM: Crucial Ballistix 2x1Gb Kit of PC2-6400 (800MHz)
    GPU: Powercolor HD3870 512Mb or HIS HD4670 1Gb IceQ
    HDD: 160Gb Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM
    ODD: Black Pioneer DVDRW
    TV Tuner: Hauppauge Nova-T 500 DVB-T (will need to check for exact model)
    PSU: Chieftec Branded 300W or 350W PSU that came with Case

    So folks, any idea? Many thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure as the case was released a few years back, I think Hexus did a feature (here: http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=9097)

    I might be interested in selling the case on it's own but it's not got the iMon remote or accessories, well most but they seem like your standard screws, all the motherboard standoffs are there.

    One thing, it's ALL ALUMINIUM, I remember it being priced high.

    Unfortunately, the CPU looks like it's going to find it's way into my sibling's rig.

    However, the motherboard is available if interested, would be looking...for an amount I will disclose in a correctly constructed thread in the For Sale forum , it's complete and boxed.

    Thanks.

    I think the difference here is between saying "I was wondering if I could sell this for £..." and saying "This is available for sale for £...". The first is an enquiry, the second is an offer of sale. Of course, if you made a For Sale thread you could always ask a bit more than you were initially thinking to see if someone *really* wanted it (but not mroe than you paid for it, which would also be against the rules... )...

    Complicated, isn't it...?

    Yeah I know, was probably being a bit lazy and lapse hence the rule breaking without realising, my apologies to all. Won't happen again.

    Nail + head.

    Not as complex as I'm sure we could make it, but we are trying to find a way of simplifying things
