Dell Optiplex 755 Core 2 Duo with 160GB HDD & 22" Monitor

Is this a good deal? Any good for minecaft and other pc games please?

Core 2 Duos are ancient CPU, Intel brought out their replacement seven years ago now. Even the cheapest model in the current desktop range, the Celeron G3900 will be substantially faster in games.

Minecraft performance requirements are unusual so I don't know how that copes on such an old system but generally for PC gaming a minimum would be a 2011-2012 system with one of Intel's i3/i5/i7 2000 series CPUs and a powerful graphics card.

as above 755 are very old better putting money on just a pc without screen

I am pretty sure minecraft would work on this machine but like the others say its very old in fact they were giving these machines away at work the other day.

​Thanks, I have no idea what I'm doing. I will search for some with better processors. Thanks very much for your help
