I'll bite - with an opinion ;) nice looking unit, but might be better off hoarding it or putting V2 SLI/V3 in for some retro gaming. Retro market seems to be a bit less competitive in Oz at the moment unless it's exotic eg Amiga/Atari, bargains to be had, and reasonably priced stuff not moving on eBay.

Hehe yes I know " just an IBM " but it's that almost complete combo. See original in that link
All the ones on ebay are rubbish ie. $200 for a tower, not working not complete " insert happy :twisted: right here " with this one!
