Highly illegal and this DOES count as pirated software.

I doubt your agreements say this software can be installed on home PC's, and I guarntee you it cannot be resold.

Alright, but I have a license that I used only on this PC. The license came with the Corporate Edition. State Govt. had an extra one, Dad got it first and gave it to me. I didn't get the license off os www.serials.ws or keygen or something like that. The License itself is genuine Microsoft.

You would have to include the genuine lisence.

And the rest of the software is assumed to be pirated, correct?

I would say $500, since you overclocked everything and none of the parts have warrenties anymore.



BUT, why would you advertise one thing, then sell it as something else? If you advertise it with its overclocked specs, specify and keep it at its OC'd specs, otherwise you'll get a very unhappy customer.

I don't think everyone is understanding what I mean by advertising overclocking.

I would say something like this.

"Please note that the processor was overclocked to 3.73 GHz (14 * 267) and the memory timings were tightened to run at 3-3-3-8 which are some of the lowest for DDR2. However, all components have been restored to stock configurations. I do not guarantee that you will achieve the same results as me depending on what components you add and what the setup remains as."

The security software is freeware. The Office 2003 is corporate edition, legal. And I do have Norton Security Suite for this which is legal. Photoshop is legal also. I bough a key/activation thingy. Guys, I'm not a Pirate!

Why would you buy ~$900 in programs, put it in a decent computer, and sell it all for less than $700?


And, like DJ-Chris said, I bet you the Corporate licenses don't allow home-PC installation, and I'm feelin' a definite bet against them allowing you to resell the software.


But, you're still tricking the consumer into buying something they're not going to get. Advertise stock speeds, and say that the warrenties on all parts have been voided by overclocking.

You won't see any company advertising a computer with overclocked specs, then selling it at the stock speed. That's just bad business, even if you tell the consumer.

You don't advertise a car with turbo, body kit, hydraulics, racing seats, etc, then turn around and sell it stock. Even if you tell the buyer that the car isn't like the pictures, that's just not right.

ARE YOU PEOPLE BLIND! READ THIS! READ WHAT I WROTE BELOW!

"Please note that the processor was overclocked to 3.73 GHz (14 * 267) and the memory timings were tightened to run at 3-3-3-8 which are some of the lowest for DDR2. However, all components have been restored to stock configurations. I do not guarantee that you will achieve the same results as me depending on what components you add and what the setup remains as."

This is what I meant by overclocking. It would attract a different audience as well as the regular audience.

And I want to know why I can't resell the software that I bought. There is no we in I. If I bought it then it is my copy of the software. I can burn it, I can break it, or I can sell it and get my money back! If what you are saying about reselling software were true, then almost all of the user's who are selling their used PCs are breaking the license agreement and that is just bull.

Secondly, I'm not gonna argue about the Windows XP Corp. thing because I really think I'm not breaking any agreement here, so leave it!

The agreement with the XP software is that the software isn't to be resold/ if it was purchased by a government agency or dept. As the license was sold underneath the assumption it would be used only for government computers and associated work.

(I know this from personal expeirence, an friends uncle of mine was working for a company, he left the firm. He decided to auction of his software like Illustrator, Photoshop and Quark, the company rang him up a few weeks later, they found out he had resold the software and had made him pay for new copies and damages in a court case.)

If Windows came from your fathers work must likely it was intended for the workplace not for resale.... I would be careful on the resale of that. If your not sure ask your dad about it, he might know?

Good Luck selling the PC
