Hi there,

I just signed up to this website because I need some help/advice. I'm looking to buy a second hand PC off the internet for a price of $1250. Now I have some queries as to what I should check upon going to complete the trade, what I should look out for, and what things it will come with(manuals, warranties etc). It's been a long time since I've been into computers so I'm no longer up with all the technology.

The specs are as follows.

-AMD 64 3500+ (socket 939) CPU
-Raidmax X1 ATX Mid Tower Case, 520W PSU, Side Window, Black/Silver (2 months old)
-Asus A8N-SLI Mobo (2 months old)
-2 x 1024 MB DDR400 Kingston Memory modules (2 months old)
-MSI Geforce 7800GT 256mb videocard
-Lite-on DVD Writer (dual layer)
-Seagate 160GB Sata HDD
-Genius 5.1 wooden speaker system (was top of the Genius range)
-Keyboard, Optical MS Mouse
-Philips 19" Flatscreen CRT 190B5 (black) Monitor
-Edimax Wireless adapter

Now I guess the bottom line is, is this a good deal for the computer what I'm paying? Or am I not making such a bargain and should look out for others or buy new online?

P.S Sorry if I havent put this thread in the correct section.

For the specs that price seems like a fair deal.

But does it come with an OS? If not then you would want to get it for quite a bit less.

Also make sure you get warranty details just incase
