Hello all - newbie in search of sage advice on the following PC.
I'm in the market for a new desktop, and have been offered a base unit with the following specs. It was built by a housemate within the last 2 months - he is selling it due to losing his job and imminent departure from the country i.e. I have no reason to doubt his integrity.
AMD Athlon X2 Dual core 5000+ 2.60Ghz Asus Barbone Case with HDMI Out 2GB DDR 800Mgz RAM 500GB HDD Onboard Geforce 8200 GPU Front Panel Memory Card Reader DVD ReWriter 6 USB Ports(2 Front, 4 Rear) 2 i1394 Firewire Ports(1 Front, 1 Rear)
(I've seen that it has an ethernet card of some sort - possibly built in with the Asus case/motherboard? - even though it's not listed here by him)
He's also throwing in an Microsoft Cordless (IR, not bluetooth sadly...) Keyboard/Mouse
He brought the parts for for £230ish, delivered late August. He's offering it for £160
Is this a good deal? I'm not a gamer by any means but do stream a lot of video, and often work from home so need it to be relatively sound and sharp.
