    I might take you up on that some day, but it would be for a much better system than a GX260 or 280. The cost of shipping it from MI to TX alone would be outrageous.

    Send the motherboard, just the entire system unit. A motherboard will fit nicely and safely in a flat rate box.

    Yeah, no need to send the entire system. Just the motherboard and PSU if you want me to look at that as well. The PSUs are also notorious for failing for the same reason.

    I guess that makes sense.

    I'll see how this new GX260 does. First thing I need to do with it is get more memory. It only has two slots so I want top find 1GB sticks.

    There are 2 GB DDR sticks, but they're ECC/Registered/Both. Probably won't work in a Optiplex.

    Yeah ECC won't work, I already tried that with some sticks I had laying around.
