I'd be amazed if it could even boot like that :p

That list includes an intel processor thats faster than intel recommend for gamers

a motherboard thats a bit out of date

and a reference to a completely incompatible AMD motherboard chip , as well as an AMD cooling fan that should not be compatible with an intel processor


and sadly it also includes a graphics card thats not suitable for high detail gaming . It will play BF3, but not at high image quality

That does seem fishy, who designs these systems?

Anyway, you shouldn't buy a prebuilt for gaming.

I notice the seller has no previous auctions .

And since he/she is utterly confused about the hardware they have then you should not go there IMO

Keep looking.

What about custom built from maybe Cyberpower or Ibuypower? I have used Digital Storm before and I can recommend them but they cost a little more. Also, the builders I listed have pre-builts that they put together in quantity which allows them to shave a few $ off the price.
