    More intelligent folks required!!

    Hi,

    A PC learner here ... just lookin round various sites, mesh, dell etc and decided to look at ebay too! Found this and was wondering if you could advise me if it's:

    A) a good deal at the price
    B) Up to doing basic video editing

    I'm not really a gamer, Champ Manager would be most I'd do, which ain't high spec at all I know!

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/INTEL-CORE-2-D...QQcmdZViewItem

    Thanks for advice, appreciate it!

    Looks quite a good machine for the price. Good that it has an Asus mobo aswell (even if it is a entry range model it's better than the ECS crap some people on eBay try and flog)

    That 7300GS is quite a good card to with 256bit RAM and GDDR2 RAM, you'll probably be able to play a few games at low-med settings.

    Right so thats £340 with vat and by my estimation the components alone would set you back just over £300.

    Also there's no OS or peripherals included with that, it's just a barebones system.

    My worry with that system is the psu. It's in all likelyhood the cheap unit that came bundled with the case and not something I would entrust work I didn't want to loose on.
