I have an opportunity to buy a Pentium2 200Mhz 96MB 4.1Gig for $200 or so.

Worth it? Can I use it as a Gigasampler standalone machine?

If not, I would replace the motherboard +CPU- anyone have and recommendations/prices to make this a usable gigasampler machine?

I will probably replace the 4.1gig with a 16 gig HD btw. http://www.northernsounds.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif IDE. Dunno if the motherboard supports UDMA or not. Anyway, suggestions appreciated! http://www.northernsounds.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif

If it was me... I\'d buy it anyway. See if it works and if you need to change the motherboard or H/D then at least your not forking out for a case/floppy drive/ram etc etc....

I am running GS LE on a AMD 200mhz, 64mb ram and a motherboard of questionable origin.
