around 860 USD.


How long has he used the system??
Did he overclock it???

I guess that's an alright price, if it was a new one.

For a second hand??? Depends.

Denno, if you really don' know how to build computers, buy it. It's not that bad of a deal.
Athlon 64 3800+ @ 2.8 ghz.
Leadtek 6800 350/700 PCI express, different from before.
80 gig Samsung HD SATA x 2
1024 Kingston Hyperx Ram
