Yeah, I usually get my computer from ebay stores with good feedback and mostly powerseller status. I don't usually get gaming machines off ebay ... I normally stick to the business class desktops and laptops that are off lease and refurbished. I scored two Compaq D530s with Pentium 4 2.66 GHz, 512 MB RAM, and 40 GB hard drive for $85 a piece. I have since upgraded both to 2.5 GB RAM and 160 GB HDD for about $60 apiece, and use them practically every day. I always keep an eye on Dell OptiPlex as well.
