    Anyone like cheap PCs? I bought a PC for my girl for $65 priority shipped. :lol: Before you ask, the heaviest gaming session it will see is from spider solitaire. For the most part she just browses the web and browses locally saved photos.

    I bought a HRAP 3 off of Ebay last week for $60 w/free shipping. Guy said it should come to me by wed.

    Now I'll have two sticks (Modded SE the other). Should I sell one or keep both?

    That's a hell of a deal on the HRAP. Personally I would keep it and sell the SE if you don't want to have two sticks. Then again I prefer the weight of the HRAP. The argument could go either way.

    I know this may not seem cheap to anyone with a flea market, but this is cheap by eBay standards.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300348881096

    It was sniped at $38 and a lot like this usually runs around $60-70.

    I also picked up a pair of SNES Championship joysticks. Here's the cheaper of the two. $16 shipped. Not bad for Happ parts.

    Picked up a PSone (the small version) at a local Goodwill for $5 yesterday. Seems a little iffy with some games, took a little fiddling to get Castlevania Chronicles to work, Mega Man X4 wouldn't work at all, Final Fantasy VIII worked just fine. Bit of a mystery to me, considering the discs are all in perfect shape, but hey, for $5, whaddaya want? If I can get it working better, I might get one of those LCD screens for some on-the-go action if I can find a deal on those.

    I checked and no, he isn't. The stick showed up the day he said it would. I opened it up and everything seemed new and legit. Here's the link to the original sale:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270449349495&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

    Here's a pic of it with my other stick:

    http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b7/crovax612/bothsticks.jpg

    I've gotten a bit attached to it now so I don't know if I'm going to sell it. When am I ever gonna find a HRAP this cheap again:sweat:? Meus seems to have some luck with the deals. $73 for the TE? Shiiiet.

    I do feel kind of weird having two arcade sticks though...

    Awesome. I have two of these on the way right now. One is new. Zeetes tells me they're really fun little Happ sticks. Mine will get PS1 PCBs.

    This is probably the wrong place to post this, but I couldn't see any better place, I've been looking for a good site/ shop in the UK to buy a MadCatz SE stick, as my first stick, and I was wondering if anyone knows where I could get one fairly cheaply.

    The 1:1 dollar to pound conversion rate that MadCatz used would not sit happily with my bank balance.

    Yeah, you won't get much exposure here (though you may get a reply). Head over to the Trading Outlet and post a WTB ad. I'm sure someone in the UK has one of these to spare.

    Wow, and you got free priority mail shipping. That poor bastard probably spent $20 to ship it to you. :lol:
    PS3 TE stick - $86.
    SFAC stick - $44
    That's a very good price for a SFAC. I paid $60 for each of mine. I remember when I was trying to find a second after the SF IV release and you couldn't get an unmodded one for less than $100.
    Check it out, just got a hrap se for $73, pretty happy about that.
    I am most jealous of this one. $73 shipped for this is insane. I was debating getting one from Amazon for $140. You axed that in half.

    I seriously can't believe people are letting these go so cheap. That's an awesome stick for $66.

    Did these finally return to a normal price? Maybe everyone who wanted one here finally got one. Even meus started selling some of his.
