    You wont believe this guys...I just decided to promote my PC building venture today. I went out and handed just one yes just one flyer to a newsagent shop. the bloke there didnt understand a word I was saying but I just left it with him. within half an hour of coming back to work I get a call on my mobile from a bloke saying he wants me to qoute a price for 16 yes 16 PCs :blink :eek: ...but he says he will be happy for a qoute of 8 for now. he says someone has already qouted him a price but he didnt tell me how much. now whether this is for real I dont know but the guy knew what he wanted and here's the list:

    P4 CPU (2.4 or above)
    64 MB AGP card
    Sound card
    15" TFT monitor
    Ethernet cards
    MSI or Gigabyte Mobos
    Kingston RDRAM (333Mhz he says but I dont think you can get that speed)
    ADSL wireless router
    120GB HDD

    thats all basically...now can someone please explain to me the speeds of RAMBUS for the P4 Mobos and how many pins am I looking at here and I cant believe this is the first call and he wants this many!! dude must be heaving with money...I say bring it on...:twisted: :fkr

    Noel, I'll do it for 20 pounds an hour (sorry, no pound sign :x ), that's still roughly $50 canadian an hour, I'd be laughing. :biggrin


    Although of course you wouldn't be gettin as much expertise as you would with pheonix, but you get what you pay for lol :biggrin

    Stop it PB, you're killing me.:D

    Noel, don't forget to back it all up with extra service, installation, setup etc. Are they upgrades or completely new systems? Don't forget cd roms, psu's, floppy's and towers. How about os's?

    One question though, if the guy knows so much about pc's already to give you specific details why doesn't he do it himself?


    EDIT: £18.50 an hour.

    Thats what I thought nugget...but he doesnt want any OS's I believe they are just upgrades cos he did mention something about having wireless access points. also he didnt ask for floppies or any other type drive for that matter and no cases or keyboards either. so im really not sure about this one. I believe he is wanting them for his business of some sort. the thing is I dont think he wants me to put them together...just buy them off me and he will do the rest. my question is how do I benefit from all this in terms of making money for myself? Cos I have thought this thru...i dont think it will work for me...serious thinking is needed now :study

    had lots of problems when using them in performance pcs
    perhaps they are fine for standard rigs :)
    thats good coz there pretty well priced considering features
    thanks for the input guys
    never actually used one in a non performance rig so didnt know that
