to me it looks like a ok everyday use computer. Keep an eye on castanet. I found a alienware outdated computer, but i7 3930K with GTX 660 SLI. Pulled the SSD out of my old 1366 i7 920 rig. got it year ago for $400. It play all the older games I want just fine, mostly just a quick surfing computer for me. I only game in the winter.

If I wanted to i could get a better GPU and use the more modern games better.

I bought 1987 Mustang with 450,000 kms for only $5,000! It has racing stripes and a cool hood scoop, goes fast, and awesome mirror dice. Good deal!

Doesn't Computer Resource still sell these old refurbs? Except they usually had 2-4 yo former office computers, not 7yo ones.

That's not even close to a gaming computer.

I literally have the exact same computer at my desk at work. I'm looking at it right now.

We use the computers for internet research, 3 data programs specific to our job and paperwork.
