if Den doesnt want these as he asked first, I would like the the RAM & GPU (as it would bring mine up to 16GB 1600Mhz from 12GB 1600Mhz) and the GPU as mine is 1GB 650 GTX - the 2GB  660 GTX Ti is far more power full ..e.g.
336 cuda cores on mine 1,344 cuda cores on 660Ti
128-Bit memory interface on mine, 192-bit interface on 660Ti
1Gb Video Memory on mine, 2GB Video memory on 660Ti

I will pay you for the postage and something extra for the parts

heck , the scrap desktops that were heading to the reclamation centre,  (Tip ), seems  to be useful after all , OK , I am going to give away on a first come basis  , Den was first, Stefan 2nd 1Bit 3rd ,
will talk to you guys in P.M. but have given Stephan first choice on the GPU as I missed his  P.M,
just found one of the breakers is a Dell DDR 2  with  3 x 512Mb memory sticks apparently it was running Vista  :o

indeed that was so, Stefan pm'd 30 mins later  about the vid card,  stefan was 1st to ask about the vid card , same as Den about the memory ,
obviously my mistake to try and give away parts, won't be doing that again with the next batch of desktops , they will get redirected straight to the tip,  >:(

lol....  dont worry about it I was just making sure I was fairly placed in line HA HA -  wasnt sure if you read my first post and took my 2nd post as my 1st response is all :)


Im happy enough with my now 5 year old system, been upgraded bit by bit over the years..memory upgraded from 8Gb to 12Gb thanks to Den giving me 2 x 2GB Sticks, SSD been upgraded 3 times (from 1 poor SSD to a pair of 120GB 840 EVO's in RAID '0' (which I gave to Tom) then upgraded to the 250GB 850 EVO (in RAPID mode) and still working good, 4 hard-drives installed (250Gb SSD / 2TB HDD / 2 x 500GB HDD) - GTX 650 1GB @ 1100Mhz - Intel 4965 AGN WiFi (3x3) 5Ghz

just that GPU would help the DimitriRender program I use to watch my movies on that interpolates it, I have to downgrade output from 60Hz to 50Hz (50fps) as you need a powerful GPU for it too work good and on 60Hz it stutters (not powerful enough) on my 336 core GTX 650 - but im happy enough atm... it works fine at 50HZ, text seems better at 60HZ which is odd as it shouldn't affect resolution (but can affect perceived resolution I suppose)

your loft ? ,  My lounge has 4 partly dismantled computers spread all over the floor, what should have taken  a free day to sort out if I had been at home ,  unfortunatly a friend died during a "routine " heart op, leaving a naturally distraught widow , and 2 sons working abroad  (USA/Aus )  , both now on their way back,
just saying to Stefan & Den there will be a delay on sending the parts ,  but for 1bit  I have now another(2x4Gb ) of memory available , will sort it all out this week,

Age ? no idea , he was my guardian angel   :angel: when I was a teenager , put me on the right path, later even got my passport sorted later in life, ( being I was technically a immigrant ) and still am , not going to change that now , waiting for Brexit, in my dreams I might get compensated and sent home  :D Why not? lest they have great broad band and no snow =

 Roco I understand believe it or not.

A good friend of mine passed away a few years back now...His name was Karl.
Karl was from south africa and imgrated out to OZ with family.
He was already retired (engineer, best I ever new) when I met him.
But he keept me from going down the wrong road in life, more times than I care to admit.
We new one another for over 20 years, even after I imergrated to England I would call him if I needed some wisdom/good advice. So I missed him when he passed away but I got to write his eulogy because I couldn't be at his funural and his family said I new him better than anyone. I felt honored not so sad after that.  :)

Roco,  lol:1.
That made me laugh.
There are certain words they use in OZ, that mean something very different here.
Example; Spunk in OZ means; when a shella/bloke fancy's the oppersite sex they will say "what a Spunk"!
It's compliment But in the UK it means something else.

@ fudgie , indeed love languages, accents and sayings , it what separates mankind ( to be p.c correct and womenkind ) humans  the only animal to achieve that, dogs barking is universal ,so is the hiss of a snake etc ,
can you say women"kind",  they seem a rare beast to me ,  even rarer than hens teeth  ;)
