$25,000 worth of Multimedia hardware/software on sale
« on: November 28, 2007, 08:17:14 AM »
Santa-like insanity has me in a very festive mood where I’m clearing out nearly $15,000 of computing hardware/software for stupendous prices, if not for free! Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely reluctant to sell my favourites like Adobe CS2, Wacom Intuos2, Pinnacle DV500 Pro, Nikon Coolpix 5000, which continue to serve me brilliantly but I’ve upgraded quite heavily and to retain these items as treasured collectables would just be greedy. So if you would like to save a fortune and can provide a loving environment for this excellent gear please contact me via email ahagan@csu.edu.au or phone (02) 6933 2932. All items are pick-up only and won’t be posted.

SPECIAL     

On Sale   Dell Precision 470 (Dual Xeon 3.6GHz) Workstation   Cost $$$$$$   Make an offer   Save at least 85%
Bought less than 3 years ago for a 5 figure sum, this professional high-end workstation remains staggeringly powerful today. Featuring Dual Xeon 3.6GHz processors, 1GB DDR2 RAM, twin Western Digital 74GB (10,000RPM SATA) Hard Drives in RAID0, 128MB NVIDIA 6600GT graphics, Audigy 2 ZS audio, Pioneer DVR-110, Iomega 250MB Zip drive, Intel Pro/1000 MT network card, and Firewire/USB 2.0 ports, the machines components are worth over $4,000 alone.

Diamond Viper V770 Graphics Card <- 32 bit 3d rendering, 128bit 2d acceleration, 32mb graphics card using the nvidia riva tnt 2 chipset and agp 4x (dont quote me)

If you have a card already thats greater than 32mb or pci express... then id say move along.

im only taking a stab at what the card is and from what amazon has the card info down as.
