I just bought this on ebay, item 5116931769
It is a AMD XP 64 3200+
512 ram
200 gb hdd
6800 128 card
Was this a good deal?
(If not,lie and say yes!)

$1099, yeah thats not a bad deal.

The listing seems to contradict itself several times, I assume you did verfiy whats in the machine.

Might think about getting another 512 MB stick of RAM, that seems to be the only weak point of the machine (Not bad, just some of the new games would work a little better with more RAM).

Have fun with the new computer :smile:

It's based on the Chaintech Zenith board. You should like it. Get the silver or black case. Double check the power supply too. They come stock with an Aspire 350 watt not a 500 watt Enermax. Looks good though, enjoy!

Splendid
It really had me worried when I saw "chip type: AMD Athlon xp"
The speed of 3.2 gigaherz may not be accurate as well.
Looks like a great system, wonder how they sell them so cheep?

Yes, now that I notice it the add contradicts itself several times. I hope he payed with a credit card or PayPal.

Yeah the listing makes it a little suspcious, but if he gets exactly what it "should" be, its not a bad deal.

Of course the listing would tend to make me steer clear of it, after all you get what you pay for, and if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

I would have emailed the seller several times, to verfiy exactly what was in the machine.

Hopefully it's all on the level though, should be a great machine.

Computer arrived. Chaintech ZNF3-250, 512 memory (It says BRAVO 512/8 it is one stick, I emailed him to find out what it is 2700,3200...???) It is an AMD 64 3200+. It has the Chaintech media card, the dual layer DVD rw, the CD rw, round cables (and a couple extra came with mobo), 500 dual fan power supply, Far Cry, Norton w/90 day upgrades, Win XP Pro (I guess, when I went to XP tour it said welcome to XP ?Pro)...
I am only trying to decide whether the 6800 GT is worth an extra $100 (in vid forum). I just wanted to say I got it and it was a great deal. Guy was very honest.
