Hello everyone so very very shortly I'm going to be buying a computer off of my good friend for only $500 is this a good deal?

here is the specs of it - I do think it's a great deal, wanna hear some suggestions.

GPU: GeForce GTX 560
RAM: 16gb
HDD: 3tb
ODD: Blu-Ray Drive.
PSU: 750w

it also comes with a nice monitor. (it is 22-23in i think.)

Sorry that is all the specs I know - but it should be enough, is $500 for this a really good deal?.

It can run any game out at the moment at good settings (High-Max for nearly every game. - Medium on the occasional high-demanding game. - say Metro2033)

It's a great deal depending on the CPU.

It should be worth it; as long as the CPU is at least an i3.

Oh sorry forgot to mention the CPU, the CPU I believe is i5-2500k. Or i5-3470k One of those two.

It is Non-Ti, CPU specs I listed as much as I know. :/ 
Brand of PSU?, it's an expensive 750w, Im pretty sure it's an Antec one.

What CPU does it have? But that looks like it is a good deal. If you got your parts used from ebay it would probably be about 650, but you didn't say cpu or what mobo which are two pretty expensive parts.

Sounds like a great deal. If it is the 2500K, it's fantastic considering it comes with a monitor.

Although before you buy be sure to actually know what the cpu mobo, and psu are.

it is just not wise to buy blind

Alright - will ask him next time I see him - tommorw. and find out what the CPU, Mobo and psu are so I know 100%. but so far it's sounding great :D 

because the monitor is worth over 100$ it's self and then win7 64bit is another $100 so the parts only come up to $300.. which is pretty good. :) 

**note** when he bought it a year ago it was about $1500 /wout Monitor.

If it is an Antec PSU and the CPU is an i5, it's worth it, hands down.

Damn you got a pretty good deal there. I found a similar deal on my local craigslist that was similar, except it was for $650, not including a monitor. I'd get that instantly if I was you!
