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.

i7 960? that thing is pretty old. GTX480? seems a bit overpriced for hardware from 2010 or earlier.

Yeah, for 600 it looks fine. But it's about 4 years old.

I just shot him an offer for 500 dollars I will see if he goes for it. How does it stack up to modern rigs can it play modern games well, or even at all?

It depends on the card. The CPU is fine but the card may struggle a bit and if i recall, the 400 series of gaming cards are power hogs and produce a fair amount of heat.

I'd say if its a 1GB card you could get away with 60 FPS @ 1080p on a fair number of recent games.

Hmm interesting I just looked it up it looks like the Titan is a better card between the two, and its not that powerful from my understanding. I will keep looking if he doesn't go for my deal.

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

The titan beats that card like a pro athlete beats his gi... Like he beats little leaguers.
