I want to get an old system to give to my sister I have all the spair parts (old keyborad mouse speakers and monitor). I found a shop that sells computers they guy was trying to sell me a celeron 300 mhz box with cd rom 10 gyg drive ethernet port enough pci slots for a pci vid card with xp pro for 160. I have no idea if its a good deal. What about updating xp will it work? is that xp OS legal or what? 160 for a 300 mhz box is it worth it?

I doubt it very much and you can get far better systems for a little more money anyway

Last week in my local paper there was a 400mhz system complete for $50 so I believe that is a little high. You can do better.

I saw a barebones system (new) cpu xp2100 (1.7ghz) with everything except monitor for $120

Not only is it not worth it...XP Pro would run at a snails pace on a 300Mhz Celeron. Yikes.

Stay away!

If you do a search on the word "refurbished" you will come up with LOTS of places that sell @ better prices for used equipment ;)
