£250 i7 gaming rig?


I found this pc for sale on a used goods site.

The specs are:
Packard Bell
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 2.67GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.7GHz
9216MB RAM
Hard Drive:
618 GB

Ive emailed them asking about gpu, psu, os etc. and waiting for them to get back to me.

Its an i7 920 which a quick google search shows that it retails for £200+
Apparently, it works perfectly and comes with a monitor. I've always gone by the rule the if something is too good too be true, it usually is so im rather hesitant on this ad.

My questions for the experts is; is this an amazing deal or am i being ripped off?

  1. Might be OK and the person does not realise what it's worth, presumably you can have a look at it before you pay for it?
  2. Actually i cant, the pc is in manchester but i live in london.
  3. This one yeah?:
    (Pro tip don't just copy and paste if you want to keep it a secret.)

    Hard to judge from the photo's if you got an inside shot you'd be better placed to make a judgement on what's inside but could be an old GPu 4870 or GTX 9800GX2 (if you're lucky). For the price it's very good especially with all the stuff thrown in but you never know if it's been nicked. I've had a good experience with Gumtree though, i got my GPU from it.
  4. Unless you can go and test it personally, I'd walk away. £250 isn't much for that system, especially if it has a decent GPU with it, but it is a lot of money for nothing if it turns out to be a lemon.
  5. Just the rang the seller and its already been sold =(

    Thanks anyways
