So I just found another tower pc Deal for 600 good, or bad deal?

If it were just the tower that wouldn't be much of a deal as you could build a new system for $600 with roughly the same performance.
Example, Anandtech lists the 480 a little bit better than a 750ti and about the same / a little weaker than a 660.
Since it comes with a monitor, keyboard and mouse, I'd say that wouldn't be a bad deal as a beginner PC and you needed those things.

In my opinion.. A keyboard shouldn't be considered a gaming keyboard if it isn't mechanical.


You mean spring buttons? Because it seems thats what his rig is using.

A GTX titan is a top tier GPU. It is literally leagues above a GTX 480.

That looks pretty good for the price, but what's a "gaming" monitor?


I imagine it just the buzzard they used for it from who ever he bought it from.


I lol'd. It's buzzword. thx

Not anymore, It is now Buzzard, much much cooler, or maybe Griffin or Eagle.

Oh and that setup will cost you more to run than a newer build at the same price that matches the performance.

If you buy it I'd sell the mobo, processor and GPU.

Griffin? Pfff those aren't real any way typo's will lead to the death of civility it seems. At any rate I shot the guy a take it, or leave it 500 counter offer. Seeing as how he has had it listed for a month with no takers I imagine he will go for it.

$500 isn't bad for all that, you'd be hard pressed to beat it with new parts, a modern i5 and 750ti (this is making the assumption a Haswell i5 would be close to on par with that i7, it would definitely be ahead in most games though, the GPUs are definitely close) would run you about $600, forget windows, a monitor, mouse/kb.

The parts are old though and the 480 is a massive power hog. Assuming you're buying this as a starting point it would be the first thing I upgraded.
