What would be the maximum you'd pay for it. Seems a pretty good spec?!?

Down the road if I had the money might interested.

In my opinion when it comes to computers / gadgets I would only buy new or build from new components (or components I already have)

You could build similar spec new for £350-£400 depending on your choice of case/psu/cpu etc. I would say its worth at most two-thirds of that amount given it is second-hand and not that new (for warranty etc) so it is worth about £260 tops.

dcx - no HDD in that spec so thats at least another £30... [and the motherboard isn't really as good either but thats no big deal]

Better CPU aswell can probs do better if you shop around.


gfx card is not on par, no HDD doesn;t include extra fans or decent heat sink for overclocking, case is poor, psu is poor, and mobo is not up to scratch in comparision, only thing true is the CPU is better.

Actually I'd take issue with that, not so clear cut. If you're planning to overclock, the Q6600 tends to offer more headroom than the 8300, alongside having more cache. Difference is marginal at best!

DCX - You are now pushing £350 whilst having a crap case and PSU, so I don't think the original '£250-£300' statement is really fair!

aye agreed but if not overclocking its a better choice for the money

Mine cost me £220 minus graphics, ram and hard drive, took about 2 hours to build and worked first time.


my ram cost more than your computer (at the time i bought it)

£450 is really too much unless you particularly like the case, have a use for the SLI support and it's got a very nice power supply.

looks like an expensive base box.

If you will waste over 2k on PC components (and yes, I think waste is a perfectly fair term in context) expect problems. Self-building allows you to choose practical components to suit your target use; very few reasons exist to spend so much on a desktop PC and if you will throw money away on bleeding-edge components, expect problems and headaches!

Ok thanks fella's!!!!

HOLD the phone..... 2K on a custom build? OMG.... mental? :w00t:
