I stumbled on this looking for parts for my CNC. It came in today. Works great so far. You just cant beat the price! I'm half tempted to order a second one. :D

That's perfect for the controller.:D Mach3 should run well on that.Just remember to set watchdog, and turn off all power saving crap. LOL! and screen saver.You don't want the CNC to run off where it isn't supposed to.

I'm really surprised that this PC shows very little signs of use. The icing on the cake is the 3.5" floppy :D Even though it doesnt work.

I've got Mach3 loaded, and the power savings & screen saver disabled. I won't have this PC connected to the internet, so I'm not going to set up watchdog. I'll most likely get another gig of ram for good measure. I already have a pci 25 pin card for the closed loop. I ordered a Gecko G540, and 3 300oz/in stepper motors yesterday...so I'm getting there.

" so I'm not going to set up watchdog. "

Still set it up just in case you accidently hit a key and minimize M3 or else you court disaster. Ask me how I know? :D
