I'd be wary of stuff from Car Boot sales.. I bought a 1040 motherboard at one once (actually it was that big one at the cattle market in Clitheroe, RGUK) and shoved it in my 520 case.. It worked fine at first but there was a dry joint or something somewhere on the board and it kept crashing at rando...

And don't forget 'Dogs of War'.. :)

My friends and I did that too.. I had a 4-player multitap and we used to have huge games of tag with the 'IT' monster.. :)
