fatbellydude's PC Profile

To be honest, I have been using and abusing computers since my first 286. They have always fascinated me and technology is great thing! I work in the automotive field doing drivability and electronic engine control diagnostics, (computers). I started a couple of years ago building PC's for friends and co-workers. From there it has blossomed to selling a few on eBay and locally here in Santa Ana. I have learned one thing about building pc's...NO MONEY in it, unless you build the high end systems. My most expensive system I have sold to date was an Intel D950 Presler based system that just rocked! (Before the core 2 duo came out)Sold it for over $2400.00 on eBay! Have one or two for sale now.
So all in all I at least enjoy playing around with the guts of the beasts! If a little profit comes my way that is a bonus! I have 3 systems that I use at home and work. I have networked my shop with all wireless laptops and PC's, all connecting to various diagnostic equipment that we use. I enjoy modding a bit and have tried building in some strange places....I had this old receiver laying around collecting dust....check it out
