Plus 50 for shipping. So i got the following, all for 500$

Can you talk about amazing deal? I was planning on buying a computer, exactly like this one, but i wanted to go AMD FX-60, or wait till conroe, but for 500$ i couldnt pass this out.

Now what do you all think about the 955? NewEgg's reviews say it runs terribly hot, not for gaming, etc. But i also read that someoen OC'd it to 4.7ghz . Anyone have it? What can i do to get it to cool down. I just spent all my money on it so i cant get a good cooling system for a while.. I was thinking about a cheap scythe ninja since there only 30$ or so, Then i was thinking of moving onto WC. Let me know you all think!

For overclocking it, i was thinking of switching out the mobo later. Mmm i didnt mean eBay auction, my bad, i meant StormPay auction lol. Theres still 2 left! Ifi had more money id buy them and sell them on ebay for a profit. Someone wanna lend me 500$ lol. Why stormpay? I was looking around different auction sites, and there it was. I asked him if he was relaly selling it for 500$ he replied i made a posting error with the reserve price, and since you bought one, i cant change it. Im awaiting your payment. So, good deal Now i just have to wait for my bank account to be verified

EDIT: Forgot the url LOL

Nice, 1/11th of the price, incredible find man. Good luck with it. Hopefully it's one of those XPS's that come overclockable stock.

post #9 of 32
looks like a good deal but the guy has no prior record and he could easily rip u off

That just seems to good to be true. I mean literaly. I personaly would love to find a deal like that(Im a deal seeker) but that just seems way to good to be true, and as such it gives me the WARNING message.
Is there anyway you can get in contact with the seller? I mean why in gods name would someone actualy sell a system like that for half the cost of the CPU. I think Id be asking alot of questions and asking for a phone number, work number and so on just to be safe, but still Id have my doughts of getting anything in return. So you might want to be carefull because that just has fish writen all over it.
