So i found a add of some one selling his rig because hes moving to another country the specs are:

Watercooled AMD 3.2 GHZ am3 6cores black edition
8 Gig RAM geheugen
MSI CYCLONE Geforce gtx 460 video card
60GB SSD windows 8 Pro + mediacenter key
500 GB hdd

samgsung syncmaster flatscreen 20 inch
Razer deathadder gaming muis
Razer tarantula keyboard
Microsoft HD 720p Webcam

All for 250 euro. Now i dont know if some one remembers my topic from last week where i decided to get:

Intel Haswell Core i5-4430 3.4GHz
Asrock B85M
Crucial 8GB 1600 Kit
500GB HDD
AMD Radeon HD 7790 1GB

For 675 euro. How does the above spec compare to the one i was planning to get.

The CPU in the second one is better, but not worth the $400 difference.

7790 is a little better than the 460, and newer, but again, not necessarily worth the $400 difference. The second one will likely have a longer longevity and futureproofing due to the newer series of GPU (a lot of games semi arbitrarily do not support older GPUs, despite being power enough to run the game). Still, you can always buy a replacement cheaply.

CPU is also more futureproof and it would cost a lot of money to replace the 6 core when you do (probably around $300-400), but it's fine for the time being, might struggle in planetside 2, but that's about it.
