I'm looking on Ebay and found a reliable seller and has low prices. My budget right now is only around $300 and I was hoping to buy someones old gaming pc (Not too old, maybe a half a year or something) but I found this and was wondering if it was a good buy?

This is the link to it http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3308...

If you could point me in the right direction in getting a gaming pc it would be awesome, thanks ahead of time.

kinda went from one extreme to the other there. you realize that just the cpu in that second build is gonna cost all of your $300 budget?

Well those are the specs of a computer I found online, for an extra 200.

in that case its stolen, the cpu and the gu are each more than $300. that's a $1000+ machine with those specs.

If the seller is genuine, and is not fooling you then that rig is an ultimate rig.Its still concerning me as to how someone can sell their Ultra PC for such a low cost. :pt1cable:

Yeah when I first saw it I thought it seemed too good to be true, I'm not sure as to whether or not I should buy it.

Contact the seller, ask for the bill.If he has the bill then he's genuine i guess.

Alright so Shikhar, sorry for not responding for a while, but how about these specs? xD I'm still looking for a computer and will keep searching until I find one for around 300-400 that will be able to run games like Arma 2 without a horrible lag, I don't mind terribly about the graphics, but I don't want any lag.

do you know what lag is?

and the 630 is rubbish, whilst the i7 is too much, take the $100 from the i7 and get an i5 and put $100 into the GPU.

GT 630 is crap...
Instead get an i5 as suggested by 13thmonkey probably a 3570 or 3770 (you can get the k versions if ur going to overclock) and 12 GB ram is overkill, 8 GB will be more than enough and invest the remaing money in ur GPU
