Default buying pc

So this guy is offering me a second hand pc

2500 xp chip out of a laptop and its over clocked to a 3200 xp it can overclock much further he said, not tryed to the limit.

XP 3200+, 160 gig Hard drive,1024 Megabytes,DDR Dualchannel ram,16 X Dual layer DVD-+ RW,Radeon 9700 pro,128 MB Graphics card Extreme edition,sound blaster audigy sound card 5.1 surround sound,17" Compaq CRT monitor,Keyboard and Optical mouse. Windows XP and lots of other software installed. Bargain PC for multi task or gaming.

for 275

heres what he had to say

its a gigabyte ga 7n400 lan and theres 1 gig of ram 4 x 256mb sticks running in dual channel mode...so equivalent to 2 gig.

for that value is it worth it? it was built a year ago so i was told.

so how many years in the running will this machine last me. i don't know much about this mobo but say if i wanted to add extra stuff do you think it would be possible to detach those components and reattach them onto a new motherboard?

or i might decide to get this one brand new all built up and add a few things

* AMD Athlon 3800+ X2 Dual core
* 1GB DDR2 RAM 1 GB (installed) / 4 GB (max) - DDR SDRAM - 400 MHz - PC3200
350watt psu
9-in-1 USB card reader
6 USB 2.0 ports (two in front)
Microsoft xp Media Centre
on-board 11g 54Mps wireless adapter build inside
mini tower
Cache Memory L2 Cache
Storage Controller Serial ATA ; IDE
Hard Drive 1 x 160 GB - standard - Serial ATA-150
NVIDIA GeForce 6100
Sound card - 7.1 channel surround
Network adapter - Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet
Serial ATA ; IDE

what do you think?

Default Re: buying pc

to be honest, i don't like either of them, you could probably find better deals than the two mentioned above.
