    That computer isn't nearly as nice as the one he posted. I'd say it's a decent deal, not jaw dropping but if what you said was in it was correct then you're looking at a pretty good deal.

    Intel Core 2 Quad CPU, Q8200 - 350 refurbished
    500 GB HD depends on speed
    4 GB RAM depends on speed
    Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
    ATI 4560 graphics card - 30 bucks?
    Blu-ray player - 60 bucks maybe more depending on brand/speed

    HP W2207h glossy flat-panel monitor - 280 new

    maybe 150 for everything else not accounted for + ram and HD

    total = 890

    Check NewEgg and TigerDirect before you purchase used...

    I don't really care for refurbished/used systems. No recourse when stuff breaks, and it will break... just a matter of time!

    Home built with quality components can be done for what you are looking at there... Start with the barebones, and add to it.

    Good luck with the decision!

    What kind of warranty are they going to give you on the computer?


    ETA ... do you really need a blue ray player on a desktop computer?

    $600 is a lot of money to spend on used electronic equipment at a pawn shop.

    I agree, for $50 - $75 more/less he can get a new computer that doesn't have Vista installed on it.

    Keep an eye out for a good deal on computer(or anything else) on slickdeals.net. Very good website. You should be able to find a comparable deal on a new desktop pc.
