Is this rig worth $50

That is an amazing deal for $50.

It isn't the best PC in the world, but the parts alone new would be over $200 easy.
Even if you had to replace the power supply that is still a fantastic price.

I say it's a good buy just because I have the same exact RAM

The guy says its a ac220v


Several things are possible here:
- It has a PSU with active PFC which doesn't care where you plug it in, it'll work on 110V and 220V AC without intervention on your part.
- It has a PSU with a voltage switch on the back, which lets you choose between 110V and 220V AC. If it's set to 220V and you're in a 110V AC area of the world, just flip that switch to the correct setting.
- It has a PSU with passive PFC which may only work on 220V AC. That happens when buying stuff on the European market.

some of the more expensive ones (Seasonic) just automatically switch when plugged in


Just to be extra clear, that feature is called active PFC, and it's not exclusive to Seasonic or expensive units.

In any case, it's undoubtedly a good deal for $50 if nothing is wrong with it.

What PSU is in it? Without that information it's hard to recommend a card. You'd probably be safe with a 7770 or maybe 7850 in that rig, assuming a decent PSU, though.

I'd say it's definitely worth $50.

That price is really suspicious, if it works its a great deal.

He might have plugged it on the wrong AC and burned some component (most probably the psu only, or the motherboard too). Or it "fell from the truck", who knows.

Well I meant it was more common on the more expensive units.
