That Apu is decent for the price, you can do some gaming on low settings with this.
for someone with a £220 budget u cant knock this + 3 year warranty.
--self builds within the above budget may go slight another route.......
At this price point, buying new makes almost no sense.

For the money you can get yourself a complete system with a 3rd/4th gen Intel i5/i7, 16GB, 1TB HDD (~£100),
Stick an SSD in it (£20-30), and if you're interested in modest gaming, a 1060 3GB/RX570 (~£80).

It'll smoke this Athlon.

Do you mean a refurb or self build?

Best to worst:
- private ebay seller
- tech recycler
- refurbisher (e.g. itzoo)

Really? Doesn't the warranty from somewhere like itzoo make it a better option than an eBay seller? And what is a tech recycler please kinda new to this sorry for questions

Or if you start with this system, you can pop in a much more powerful NEW CPU in it at any point with very little hassle. This is potentially compelling for many. Your used option definitely has value on its side, but not longevity.

Warranty is great, so long as you're not paying extra for it. (which, in the case of itzoo, you often are).

Tech recyclers are businesses that do company clearances; either disposing of old tech when a company upgrades, moves offices, or has its assets liquidated by creditors.
As the businesses often don't care how much the hardware sells for, and the recycler is more interested in throughput than maximizing per-item profit, they tend to be an excellent source of cheap ex-business hardware.
Most sell through ebay, and if you can find one local to you (most cities have them), you can avoid the often prohibitive shipping costs.

Thank you for this really helpful explanation! Just curious why you rate private ebay sellers as better than tech recyclers? I'm always wary as from what I've seen, they don't seem to offer warranty or even allow you to return the item in many cases.
You have a month with ebay to return if its faulty, ... Even if they say they don't accept returns. I build a few pc's out of new and used parts. My concern with this CCL computer is the case and psu. I would be very surprised if the psu is up to or even has the connectors for powering a future graphics card upgrade. Also I suspect the quality/reliability of the psu. These cases are also small and cooling a hot graphics card in them can me a nightmare.

For an entry level PC like this, I'd be tempted to buy a Asustek A300 and go from there. No pointing having a hulking mid tower for components like this!
Would this run CAD?
