Actually, for $200, that's not half bad. It's dated, to be sure, but probably better than any other $200 PC you could find.

Saw the title and immediately thought that if it's 200 dollars it's pretty much always going to be a piece of crap, but that's not that bad. It's dated, but the GPU power is what makes it pretty decent. If you were going to upgrade you would need a new CPU which would require a new motherboard, so the upgrade would be pretty costly, at least 250+ dollars for a decent upgrade. With a more modern CPU that would be a pretty decent gaming rig, but even as it stands it's more than sufficient for playing most games on medium or even higher. A lot of games would run on high if you leave AA and the intensive options off

Even just swapping in a new GPU would give it a decent boost. Even though it's old, the CPU is still quite solid.

Corsair 256GB SATA Drive


Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this the Corsair Neutron 256GB SSD? And the entire PC including that is selling for $200?

The deal is fantastic, actually. You can buy it and use it for a year or so then upgrade, or just sell it for a higher price and buy a new rig.
