So I actually just bought this used system which I paid 270 euro's for. I think I got it quite cheap as it does also contain windows 7.

Here are some of the specs:

Case: Antec Threehundred
PSU: Recom 650 w (not 80+)
Fans: 4x Some corsair silent blue led fans (idk name).
RAM: Corsair cmx8gx3m2a1333c9 8GB 1333mhz
CPU: Amd Phenom x4 955 3.2 Ghz
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper TX3
MB: Asus M5A97 LE R2.0
GPU: Ati Radeon 5850
SSD: 64 GB idk :p  (SATA II)
Optical drive: Idk (Samsung blu-ray + dvd - doesn't really matter anyway)

The reason why I can't list all the specs yet is because I don't yet have a monitor for it.
I have tested it there and worked 100% (was quite cool as well).

The parts have been put together aprox. 2011.

I'm planning on making it dust-free, but not applying new cooling paste because he recently put new paste on the components.

Further I'm planning on changing the PSU to a Corsair CX600. Solid PSU for a not too expensive price.

Has somebody got some tips for me? Or warnings? I'd really like to do this correctly as this is my first "used" gaming rig :$.

Looks like a decent all-around system.

Also since you have an SSD go through this guide:

A little old, but still worth your time.

Thank you very much! I'm really going to put some time into reading this carefully :p . And the thread may be old, but so is the SSD :p .
