You won't be playing BF3 on that. Well you could but there would be no point, you'll have terrible FPS.
Underwhelming / aging build, increase your budget slightly and build your own, You can build something quite impressive for about £500 to £600.

Thanks, how much will it cost me to play bf3? Would prefer second hand as it'll obviously be cheaper than new. Max is like £400
Not for that money!

Dual core and 4 gb of RAM!
My steam library wont fit on that harddrive either.

The only half decent things in there are the graphics cards and blu ray drive.

as said, avoid.
Would it be possible to buy a second hand pc for under £400 without a screen that would run bf3 well?
Amazon Link

I was about to list a pile of componant prices for you but at a quick look this is better than your ebay deal

Graphics card isn't great but it does leave you money left over to buy a better one.

that's i3 + HD7770 which is just about the minimum for demanding game like BF3

+ you're missing RAM, PSU
You have a choice, up your budget, or reduce your expectation.
Well I have this pc - amazon.co.uk/Pre…JEI and a zoostorm one in my bedroom. Most likely wouldn't be able to take anything off either

why? you might reuse the HDD and ODD from zoostorm, if there is one, no problem.
