$275? riiiiiight... this is nothing more than a refurbished PC that most SMART people would only pay about $50 for, and considering that windows XP is an antique by now, any one that has any money will put that 275 into a new pc from newegg or some other discounted parts dealer.

sorry to flame if i did, but i cant see how ANY one would buy a refurbished unit for more than $100 when its running XP and probably not capable of taking Vista or 7

Wow indeed. Nice salvage work, and I might buy it for 50-100 as a backup machine. (It's kinda dated, but indeed speedy.) Where'd you salvage these things?

Kudos!

Mind you, I'm in Canada.

Newegg would rape me on shipping and the customs agents would lovvveee to put on some "border tax", if I ordered from newegg. Tigerdirect > Newegg

I've had people pay me to order from newegg for them and send the stuff with USPS. Since you're in Canada and Tigerdirect ships there, they're the better option, though.
