Are you looking for assembled machines or just the parts?

I got boxes of old motherboards, cpu and video cards likely matching your requirements (the first box I used to play eve had these specs and the parts are in them boxes somewhere).

Let me know soon, I am taking all that junk to the dump as soon as my back heals.

lol..i trashed tons of old hardware 2 months ago, when we moved.

However, I can loot and salvage company hardware.
Dell Optiplex - all in working condition with 512M to 1 Gig RAM.
graphics can become an issue, because they only have intel onboard gfx.

But btw..is there no ebay in island?

In fact, now Iceland may be just more of the area, just the second half of the island will be out of computer components. Ready to send this stuff for ten years of playing from Uzbekistan. Too far? Cool

OMG, my computer must be realy old then because it meets those specs, I knew it wasnt the best computer but I didnt know its now classed as a relic.

Maybe its time I upgraded my computer but it runs EVE just fine as long as I turn the Grahics settings down.

What an awesome idea from CCP! How companies got the equipment for testing minimum specs never even crossed my mind before, or indeed if it was actually tested!

Petion submitted and fingers crossed Very Happy

Awesome stuff brothers. CCP is waking up to the digital age. Sreegs is actually getting something done about the bots, the CSM is actually working with CCP and vice versa. This program is great for several reasons:

Recycling of hardware-items being used longer and more computations get out of each Processor. This helps the environment and shows CCP's devotion to environmental issues as one of the premier "Green" companies in the world.

Players that are cash strapped in this desperate fiscal climate who possibly would be unable to pay for or play eve, have a way to extend their enjoyment and subscription.

CCP by buying these older less energy efficient computers, and paying in subscription time, will save themselves a load of cash. See, these older computers use more electricity and produce more heat than newer units. Since 99.5% of Iceland is under a sheet of ice almost four meters thick for 340 days per year-that heat inefficiency will reduce the heating bill for CCP. I understand CCP HQ is encased in a galcier that is 175 Kilometers long, and when they need GM's-they merely chip out a frozen neanderthal corpse, revive it and teach it to type :

Thanks for your petition but unfortunately we were unable to verify anything from our logs....


just kiddingRazz GM's have a hard job and it is difficult to adjust to corporate life after so long in the ice and they do it pretty well

Mh. I think I have 4x 1GiB of DDR2 RAM lying around somewhere. Two pairs of 2 GiB dual channel kits TBH.

You need it, just send me a message, but don't be surprised if I get back to you only next weekend. Busy real life is busy.

Not much in complete computers, they kind of take too much space away.

(Those RAMs were my fallback plan in case my current ones broke due to manufacturing error. Turns out they didn't, so I can safely throw them out the window. Haven't had them plugged in for around two years, but they should still work fine.)

• Per item we will give you a 6 month subscription.
• CCP will also pay for the freight.

You would loose more isk paying attention to finding old **** for the reward then if you would mine for the same period of time.

Pay out of the nose for a pro, or buy a real PC.

So you really want fully built computers correct?

Not just a box of hardware? I have about 5 computers worth of hardware all working but are not in computers because I kept the same Case, so I have the hardware, just not assembled.

I have all you can imagine regarding OLD processors (intel), MB (all for intel), old ram.. Without HardDisks.

The problem is that I live in Brasil and you probably want something from Europe, C/D?
Anyway, if you will pay shipping from here I will make a list of my working hardware.

You're having some other issue then.

1st and 4th-gen MacBook Air; 1st-gen Al iMac; 2nd-gen unibody iMac; 8th-gen Mac Mini…

…and no disconnects on any one of those.

submitted a pettition..

How about letting us have the game time in the form of plex rather then raw time? if I've got this right I've got enough junk to fun my two accounts for the next 3-4 years I'd love to just take 2 years of time and cash in a few billion isk worth plexes instead.
