WTB: sawtooth logic board / processor, odd request & a bunch of stuff FT



I do some trading over at the Ars Technica Agora, but I wanted to post this here as well...

I'm working on a Mac G4 machine, which I believe to be a sawtooth. The machine will not turn on, and I'm looking to replace the logic board and/or the processor. So here are the two requests:

1. I'd like to know if anyone would be interested in purchasing: a g4-compatible logic board for a sawtooth, a g4 processor for a sawtooth, or both depending on if I end up replacing either and the results of the testing. The parts would only be used for however long it would take to test, so I'm not interested in taking a huge hit on it. (What would a logic board cost and where would one buy one other than Agora anyway?) For instance, I would swap out the processor and if the machine started working, I'd sell the motherboard. If I swap out both parts and the machine still doesn't work, I'd give up and sell both new parts.

2. I'd be willing to buy a KNOWN GOOD logic board and processor for a sawtooth on the cheap.

Please help.

Paypal ready. I can also pay with MO or trade for computer-related goods.

I've got all of this for trade:

- Web hosting and/or design (HTML, PHP, MySQL)

Console stuff
- Morrowind for XBox
- Cell Damage for Xbox
- Memory for Xbox
- Original Nintendo system with 1 controler and video connections. I believe it's missing the power cable, which shouldn't be hard to find. I'll double check the contents of this box if anyone is interested.
