Alright, 2 guy's are selling computers locally on craigslist both are still for sale and I want to know which is the better deal, the best bang for my buck.
My old PC crashed and right now I'm not looking for something big but just something that will last me and I can upgrade later on in the future and can run my current steam games; CSS, Killing Floor, Gmod, etc things like that so basically a PC I can run as a mediocre mid-range gaming rig as well.
Which do you think is a better deal and can run what I want ?
the author didnt give me to much of a description but I saw the PC in person and it seems to run great
hp pavillon desktop
360 gb hard drive
amd athlon(tM) 64 x 2 dual core processor 5000 + 2.60ghz
did not say the video card either but I am currently not worried because the one from my old PC will be the one I'm using
author was a lot more descriptive

HP, like many OEM companies, will not always be everyone's preference in making a purchase decision, (such builders don't use top quality parts for example), I understand that....but HP at least has much better pricing at the outlet side compared to Dell, (and even better than Tiger Direct/CompUSA)...
