Hey, sorry if this is in the wrong section...

I am about to buy a new pc off of eBay and didn't know if I would be getting my money's worth. I am trying to get a computer I can play a few games on such as CoD2 and others...

Here is the information provided...

RAM - 2 GB
Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz
Hard Drive Capacity: 300 GB

and

-Raidmax Sagitta Mid-Tower

-NZXT PF-500 500Watt Power Supply

-Intel Pentium D 920 (2.8 Ghz)

-CoolerMaster Liquid CPU Cooling System (with fan control)

-Asus P5N32-SLI Deluxe nForce4 SLI motherboard

-2Gb of DDR2 667 RAM

-Dual GPU SLI with Two EVGA GeForce 7800 GT's

-300GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16M Cache 7200RPM Hard Drive

-LG 16x DVD-/DVD+/DVD-RW/CD-R/CD-RW Drive

-Another LG 16x DVD-/DVD+/DVD-RW/CD-R/CD-RW Drive

-Wireless G Networking Card

-------------------------
It will also come with XP completely installed...and I was wondering how much you guys thought this would be worth and should I buy it with the GFX card provided...

Right now the bid is at $340.00 and $20.00 USD to ship but there is still 4 days left .. max I would go is $400.00 USD

I appreciate any feedback, and thank you all in advance.

I would say that's defenitely worth the amount you're paying.
Asus motherboard, liquid cooling, 300GB HDD, 2.8GHz; it's defenitely a good buy.

Safe to say you arent going to get it for $400 its worth more than that the guy will have paid at least 1500 to put it together probably more youre not going to get it for 400 A. itll go over that sharpish B. the guy would be nuts to sell it for that.

That's the problem with Ebay, you really can't get a good idea of what you will be paying until about 15 minutes prior to the auction closing.

Well, he is saying that he is going away for college, and that he needs the money.

Right now, there is a guy with a very high max bid, he bid 300 and I bid it up to $455.75 and he is still under his max bid. I hope I can get it for like 500, but if 460 is under his max, I don't think there's much of a chance.

He started the bid at $10 and didn't put a reserve on it. I hope I can get past the top bidder right now, but idk.

Stupid not to put a reserve on it, but i dont think you have much of a chance its not a totally up to date system but its enough to make 1000 a bargain.

Ahh I'm pissed. Out of nowhere the top bidder, (I was second with 450) put it up to 900! >: (

So it looks like you guys were right that it was going to go for a lot. I guess I'll either look on eBay or try to configure one off of www.cyberpowerpc.com. Try to get something good for a nice price.
