I'm a PS3 man myself.. But with the Elder Scrolls Online coming out later this year, I'm lookin' into goin' to the Dark Side ;)  :o  ..
So, I'm wondering if this build is up to par with the games that are out right now? (BF3, Diablo 3, Farcry 3, etc..)
If I do get this rig I'll add more storage.

Any help/info would be great.

Thats still a good gaming computer

The price will determine whether its worth buying

Decent build but don't pay too much for it (new it's worth about 8-900$ now)

I'd personnaly pay a maximum of 450$ (half the new parts cost) and i'd try to 350-400

So I bought it for 450$ and he threw in a cheapy LCD monitor, keyboard and mouse..
Thanx for the input guys.
