Hey guys,
I'm buying my first DECENT desktop from eBay and i just wanted to know if its any good.

Here are the specs:
- Intel Core i5-760 Processor (8M Cache, 2.80 GHz, 2.5 GT/s, Max Turbo 3.46 GHz)
- New 4GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM
- New 500GB SATA Hard Drive
- New H55M USB 3.0 Motherboard boost 50% CPU performance(Upgrade to P55 USB 3.0 Motherboard + $10)
- 512M GT210 BRAND NEW NVIDIA PCI-E GAMING GRAPHIC CARD

I heard this graphics card is a load of ***? I can upgrade to GT240 for $57. I asked about upgrades to the 5670 or the 5570 as well. Haven't received a reply yet
And should i upgrade the motherboard to the P55 instead of H55M only $10?

Thanks for your help,
Caius

It's 96.3% crap :) 

Build your own

Here is the problem, it says brand new 500GB drive.. that could be anything... that could be the slowest hard drive known to man thats 500GB

Another problem, New 4GB DDR3 1333MHz ram... that could be CL9... junk.

New h55 board... that can range from garbage that doesn't work to a $500 overclocking awesome board.

Graphics card is ***. its just ***. pure *** :)

Do you wanna make me a build I can make then? I live in Australia and have $760 either that or I could find out the brands of the ram and harddrive.
Thanks,
Caius
