Or there is this http://cgi.ebay.co.u...e...p;rd=1&rd=1

I could upgrade the cpu to AMD Athlon x2 3800 for £47 extra

And maybe upgrade to 2gb of ram

Im seriously thinking about buying this now, i would upgrade ram to 2gb and choose a black xblade case. I just need to know if it is good for the money or if i should upgrade anything.

The last one seems pretty good, though you would probably want to buy a new power supply as ones that come with cases are rarely very good. Upgrade to 2gb as well. The 7600gs isn't an amazing graphics card but it's better than onboard graphics.

And remember it doesn't come with an operating system, so you'd have to pay more for that too.

the first one is the best. It has everything except a graphics card, just buy a GPU and your set. That computer is good.

The second computer is horrible, and the thrid one - the seller is trying to trick the customer by stating that the processor is 4.6 ghz. Its actually 2.3.

The third one is also good, but it has 1 gig of ram.

As a general rule you never buy anything computer related from ebay, they are alot of great companies about with a good rep, and we can always help you build your own which will be cheaper.

Only the one with the 4600+ is AM2 socket which is a must and they all use poor quality cases and the AM2 one has a not fantastic motherboard brand.

Checkout cyberpower, or newegg see what you can get built for you or build yourself, it really isn't a box you want to open getting computer stuff on an auction site.
