You can easily future proof the system you build for around 500 dollars. Well future proof it much better than than thing. I have a computer similar to that one but a bit better. The 2 core AMD x2 x64 3.0ghz 4 gb ddr 667 dual channel hynix and a thermaltake 500watt purepower (great psu) and such with a 5770 and its strugling to keep up with some of the greater titles today. SC2 is my main game and its a steady medium because of my CPU. Crysis runs at a smooth medium aswell. That could be a point of reference I guess. Let me know if u got more questions though.

Just choose what you want the system for and what your going to do with it. Make sure you ask to see it working and check out the condition because its a pawn shop but other than that, make sure you know why your buying it.
tha nks for the input. i know why i am buying it and what i am going to do with it. I just want to get a fair deal. so far no one has wlaked in and bought it. its been there for a long time. the longer it sits there the less valuable it becomes.

Have you ever watched pawn stars? Lol if that show has taught me anything is that most pawn sellers if not all would at the very least expect to break even, then again that is the same with any business, no one wants to lose money.

Just my $.02, but pawn shops are typically very underhanded as far as business goes. Ususally, you can expect that whatever they "said" they paid for it. They only spent 1/4-1/2 that actual amount.
It's pretty similar to a car dealer showing you "invoice", which is not their actual invoice. Nor does it factor in the manufacturers bonus for units moved. So don't feel bad about lowballing them at all.

Now, back to the original question. $175 would be my initial offer, not to go above $225. Bear in mind, this is used older hardware. So comparing against N.I.B., isn't reasonable.

I agree. I've purchased electronics in the past from various pawn shop and have regretted it each time. Pawn shops are there to make money, not to give you a good deal on a used computer. I'd save your cash and build something yourself. I know it can be real easy to walk into those places, see something that catches your eye and want to buy it, but I think you'd just end up paying too much in the end in this situation.

OP says he wants it "for something else". I'm wondering if since he said the shopkeep is a lady, if this might be for something other than computing

As others mention, be careful when purchasing electronics from pawn shops. If I were you, I wouldn't hand over the money unless you did a boot up and brought a USB to run some system tests to make sure the CPU/GPU are working as advertised.

I feel like $200 is even a bit too generous. You're taking a huge risk here in purchasing a used computer without any fall back options. The main component that is noteworthy would be the GPU but even then, a 3870x2 is comparable to that of a 4850. Recently on Newegg, they had the XFX 4850 for $47 after MIR.

My advice is to take all the necessary precautions, i.e. system checks and see if the pawn shop will let you open up the case. A lot can be learned from just looking inside the case. Wire management can inform you what kind of owner the previous owner was. Never sympathize with the pawn shop owner; once you do, he/she is going to screw you. Sell the point that the computer is just being a dead weight, and if they do not sell soon, it's price will just continue to plummet. Best of luck!

Maybe save up some more, maybe up to $250-$300 and then could then help you pick out better components than buy a computer from a pawn shop. Do you live near Frys or Microcenter?

$750 price tag made me lol,

I agree with the majority here start @ $150, but I would not go a cent over $200 for what is essentially a 4 - 5 year old rig, also I would ask to take a look at the inside before buying just to make sure the parts are what it says and are in a resonable condition

No way that a pawnshop would pay that much. Unless they are the worst run business ever. They usually check prices when buying stuff. I doubt they payed more then 100-150 for it.

Love pawn shops, but you gotta buy the right stuff. I wouldn't buy a computer from one. Offer 150.
