I assume all of these items are used? If so, then I'll just add up/approximate all the parts and subtract 20%. That's an off-brand PSU I assume.

It's a decent deal--thanks to the monitor. At least I'm pretty sure that thing's worth more than $120. If the monitor is worth $120, then it's worth $600 total. The Q9300 should OC nicely too. The only thing that'll be wrong with it is your graphics will be anemic compared the rest of the build.

Wow! It comes with Windows 7 too!? I'm assuming it's the ebay item I found. So long as it's a legal copy--that's a very good price. It's a couple generations old, technology wise, but it will still get it done for a while.

If you're not a DIY person, this should be great for you. I dunno about customer support though.

yes, its an ebay item, i assume the win 7 is legit because it looks like the seller only sells PCs, and wouldn't risk the bad feedback because of this.

I am a DIYer and have built in the past, but I simply don't have the time hence I was considering this, hopefully will be able to do at least a slight OC on her.

Thanks for the guidance! :ange:

It only takes a couple hours to build a PC yourself. If you know how, I'd still recommend that route. This hardware is two generations old.

But the Monitor---that might make it worth it.
