As the Kern Hill guys would say, "we have too much inventory, we 
overbought again".  Tecnopolis is having a big clearance sale and wants to 
make you an offer you can't refuse.  Please look through this list to see 
the great deals.  All items are limited (many to just one) so let me know 
immediately what you are interested in.  Most items are used, but some are 
new.  I will provide at least a 30 day warranty on every item but 
otherwise all sales are final.

If you buy $40 or more I will deliver anywhere in Winnipeg for free on a 
weekend soon.  Less than $40 I will deliver for a special one-time price 
of $4.  Or you can arrange pick-up.

I have tons of other used and clearance parts for sale on my web lists at 
http://www.tecnopolis.ca/forsale/forsalec.html so check it out afterwards.

Thanks for your continued support!

VIDEO CARD FOR GAMERS AGP 8X MSI Nvidia GeForce 4 Ti4200 128MB
dual/VIVO/DVI high-end video card.  Was the mid-high end $300 card from
1.5 years ago.  This is a killer gaming card.  Great for the aspiring
high-end gamer on a low budget.  Will work in most late-era P3 and all P4
AGP systems.  Includes brand new high-end Cool Viva heatsink and fan for
reliable running.  Includes original box and all software.  Used.  90-day
warranty.  The fancy heatsink means it won't fit in some systems with 
tight spacing.  Ask for details.  $60 (1 only!)

CD-RW burner drive, LG 52X burner (NOT a DVD burner), used for a few days 
then traded in for a DVD burner, works 100% great, best brand name for

15, 2006.  $30  (normally $39!)

CPU Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz, trade-ins, perfect 100% functioning, includes
original Intel heatsink and fan, retail box and plastic holder.  I have
matching motherboards to go with these if you want to create the core of a
complete system.  1.7's are only compatible with motherboards supporting
"Willamette" CPU.  Many available.  Remainder of Intel 3 year warranty
will apply (usually 1-1.5 years left).  CPU only $45

CPU Intel Celeron 1.8 GHz, same description as the 1.7 above.  $49

office work or internet.  Price negotiable and extremely affordable.
