    Doesn't say which CPU it has and the graphics card is a bit naff (ok enough for Counterstrike but not newer games)

    There have been some good deals on here recently but seems like they are expired now - I personally would pass on this.

    I'd personally pass on this due to the overuse of caps and the inability to properly list a computer spec as well as spelling.

    May seem minor points but when dealing with computer components the previous owners ability on these matters generally shows how much they know.

    I will also beg the question if they dont know alot about them then theres a very high likelihood that there has been no maintenance and this could be a dog of a machine.

Why not check Dell outlet?

    Would pass on that too -- Processor is rather old and god knows why he has stuck a 40GB hard drive in there.

    Weston Digital - probably means Western..

    Have you checked Dell outlet? Might be the safer option and you will get much more recent components for a reasonable price.

    Prices do not include VAT although delivery is free for a few more days at the moment.
