Um, I don't know what the exact specs are, but it should be faster I think.

The fact that his stuff is used makes up for the difference in price. It'll probably only last half as long. Just trying to help though, IMO tell him more like $275 or something.

Alright. First, yes, the sytem mentioned above is faster tan yours, but to what extend? It's probably around slightly better than yours. The Manchester is a S754 system, and that is also outdated.

I'll get you a nice build for you for $300. Check back soon.

It's over your limits, but that system is quite something. You could tone down to 1GB, but I gave 2GB. Never know.

There's no tax on newegg, is there? At least where I live I don't have to pay tax on anything from there.

So what happened to that FX-60 and those two 8800 GTX's that you so proudly displayed in your signature? Did they even exist? Suddenly disappeared, eh?

As for that deal, there isn't too big of a performance difference. You might as well save up for a nice Core 2 Duo system or whatnot.

LOL!!!

Yeah, what I said before, IMO save up for a good Core 2 Duo system instead of getting an extremely minor performance upgrade now.
