    If you were to buy this PC.........

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

    this.

    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)

    could build similar for about £250-300.



    Go on the, educate me.....

    Why does it have a wheel trim stuck to the side of it?

    dcx_badass;7887699

    Used so about £200, could build similar for about £250-300.



    post specced pc with links and costs

    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]

    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.

    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

    dcx_badass;7888261

    I'd still rather have new than some used rubbish from ebay.

    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!
