Re: Is this worth it?
Depends on what you are going to be using it for...Its kind of outdated but for the price it's a pretty good setup for everyday use like email, web surfing, homework and stuff like that. Its not going to be something you want to get trying to max out crysis or anything like that. but has some potential with a few upgrades to be a really decent system..Another thing is that the MoBo was an open box item and is no longer available so the price is going to be a little higher than that now too...but it is a good starting point and with a few changes and upgrades can be turned into a nice rig on a budget....
Edit***Don't forget unless you have an OS already you can use you will need to buy that as well
