    It's value depends on the condition it's in. Is it new, second hand etc.?

    I'd say £350-400 second hand. It's a good mid-range last generation machine. The lack of SSD may be annoying and it's a shame it's not a 380/380X instead of a 960 but it'll play everything you throw at it for a few years.

    Its for sale for 350 appears to be a zoo storm not sure which model is this a good brand mate?

    £350 sounds a bit too much. Knock 50 quid and that would be a sweet spot.

    The rig itself depends. Are you wanting to play 1080p60fps on max because this will struggle especially with games getting better and better in the coming months.

    It's a good entry level pc but don't expect much out of it.

    Games are becoming more orientated on better processors these days with a few pc enthusiasts arguing that sooner or later we'll need i7s for some games and Vram requirements going up and up as well.

    Cheers guys. Im more a console gamer tbh was toying wi the idea of pc but maybe a bit conplicated for me lol

    Low end gaming pc, I'd say £250, if you run these specs on new games ie Battlefield 1 out this month I doubt it could play it. Just depends what you want to play I suppose

    £250 for such a new machine with an OS? I think that's far too low for a general estimate without knowing anything about the machine. It hasn't lost half it's value or more in the few months since newer hardware has been available.
