    I have been offered
    this; a person is selling this, it looks great, but just need to check i am not being ripped off if i buy it.

    quote from seller
    64bit PC
    320GB S-ATA 16MB 7200RPM.
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz LGA 775 4MB, BOXED m/vifte
    2 x Corsair TWIN2X 6400 DDR2, 2048 MB CL5 (4 GB)
    NEC DVD brenner AD-5170.
    Microsoft Vista Ultimate 64bit Engelsk DVD.
    XFX GeForce 8800GTS 640MB GDDR3 PCI-Express, 2 x DVI/HDTV/HDCP 320-bit
    Zalman CNPS9500 AT Ultra Quiet CPU Kjler
    Asus P5B, P965 Socket 775. ATX GbLAN, DDR2, 2 x PCI-Ex16.

    Im prepared to sell it for around 10,000 Nkr ( 1818$ / 1248€)
    It cost
    17,000 Nkr (3076$ / 2121€) a year ago, so I think thats a reasonable discount.
    Especially as it still has a 2 year parts & service guarantee
    running....
    Thanks for tips

    Case and power supply?

    From your standpoint I think the primary question would be, "What can I replace this machine with for $1800?"

    All the parts listed seem pretty current with the exception of the processor and motherboard, so can you build a better PC for less money this time around or would it be cheaper to just upgrade what you have?

    indeed, that is the question, although the guy said "around" that price hence it culd be playable.
    Never had a desktop, so have no clue if this price is too much.
    Seems like a great system no?
    as for the casing i do no care. The heart is essential.

    Wow, you're ripping him off with that piece of old junk. Take the deal. Better yet, ask for more, not much but a reasonable amount.

    Hehe, a bit of confusion here. Anyway, if the whole package is rock solid and quiet, maybe 800€ would be good price.

    I dont know where you live but here better new parts dont cost that much.

    Yeah, but then it says, "Im prepared to sell it for around 10,000 Nkr ( 1818$ / 1248)", so you can see where the confusion arises.

    At any rate, I probably wouldn't go for it.
    New CPUs and chipsets (like the e8400 and x38) are demonstrably superior to the items in this build.
    Newer RAM is faster and the 8800GT vid card is almost as good at way less cost than the GTS.

    So, for the $1800 you could probably build a better new PC than this one.
    Which is probably exactly what the seller hopes to do...

    Yes, this PC is not worth that price. You could build a new one with updated, better hardware for less money.
    The video card is an older GTS which uses G80 memory modules and is actually slower then the regular GT 512mb.
    And as clocker said, the CPU and chipset could definitely be better.
