It’ll play a mean game of solitare

I’ve seen countless systems labeled “Made for Gaming” followed quickly by “plays World of Warcraft”. Have you seen the minimum specs for WoW? I’m pretty sure a beefy netbook could play it. My second favorite part of this ad is the overclocking. You overclocked a Celeron? Congratulations, you’ve upgraded from a crap processor to a barely mediocre processor. Turning hyperthreading off to get that few extra megahertz is really just a well aimed shot to the foot.

Sony is the Apple of the PC world

Sony computers have always been over priced for the features they offered. The seller seems to think that continues once they sell it to someone else.

Was bought back in 2005.
$800 OBO

$800 will buy a very nice desktop these days. Most computers in this price range will come with a 500GB hard drive, 6GB of RAM, a dual or even quad core processor, and a nice dedicated graphics card.

I think you’d have to price this down for less then $100 before it becomes tempting. Even then, there isn’t a lot of utility there.

An AMD Dragon with bite

It may have cost you $3,500 new, and you may want $2,000 for it now, but has it for a lot less. It’s even guaranteed smudge and dust free.

It’s not as bad as some, but I think they need to discount it further before someone will even consider this. Overall, it’s a high performance system, just not at the right price.

Doubling Down

I understand being out of work, needing money for rent, and having to part with your favorite desktop. I’ve been there before. However, your desperation does not a good deal make.


Ohh, pretty colors…

That’s about the only thing going for this desktop. When they said that they “spent a lot of time and money investing in this rig”, they apparently thought that meant that they would get back all that they put into it. Sadly, technology depreciates worse then cars, houses, and Twinkies.

Lucky for us, Newegg has all of the parts (except the motherboard). I found the motherboard on eBay for <$100.


All told, you could put this together now for about $1,200 “new”. Your ~2 years of sentimental value and wear/tear isn’t worth $800 more.
