Many of the computer listings, especially for "gaming" PCs, on Craigslist Omaha make me /facepalm worse than /Facepalm, er, I mean Facebook, does. I'm well aware that the cost of a PC versus the worth of a PC tends to increase as time goes by (IOW what it costs doesn't decrease nearly as quickly as what it's worth), but some of these people must be insane, high, or both. :-/

I just think people like that have a different definition of "Gaming PC" than we do.

It's a "Gaming PC" to them in that it is capable of playing games. They're not selling to us, they're selling to people who are as naive about it as they are. No one who is a serious PC Gamer is going to consider those computers, and anyone who does consider them obviously is not interested in doing any kind of research about what they're buying. It's a Gaming PC to them because it will load and run Skyrim, regardless of resolution, settings, fps, etc.

I see A LOT of ridiculous PC postings on my local Craigslist, and I have little doubt that most of them are bought by people for not much less than the asking price. There are plenty of people who post for X but will be willing to sell for Y.

See the wording is where people go awry though, because he says this

GPU= GTS 450 1gb ddr5 (combined with this cpu this card runs any game you want it to!)


That's a true statement......it will "run" any game, but it will run many games poorly. Someone who doesn't know much about computers (and refuses to research,) will buy that and think they're getting an amazing deal and sadly for someone who flat out refuses to research and/or build their own, the definition of a "good deal" gets REALLY stretched.

Just the way that guy types in the ad pisses me off though...I would never buy from someone who types like that. Just sounds like a putz.
