I'd personally have a hard time paying $400 for that, $200 maybe, but it looks good enough to last a couple more years. Upside to playing video is that it doesn't demand high end, but there's no Blu-Ray in there either. I'm sure if you shopped around at some local stores, you'd find a better deal on a new pc.

I wouldn't pay 400 for that, or even close. $250-$300, tops.

My original offer was going to be $200 and he keep the Logitech G11 and G5. dont need those. The big bonus is I get OS included which I would have to buy if I built my own. I am trying to avoid that.

If I am going to build my own. I would rather go the APU route. better GPU than i3-3225. Is my thought process correct?

if you are going to build your own HTPC w/o a descrete GPU, yes APU's iGPU are better than intel's and make for good HTPC builds.

Just for a HTPC? For $400 you could just buy a pre-built with newer technology. For less money and it would use less power.
If you plan to use it as a Gaming Machine Switching the GPU out for a newer series could extend the performance a good bit, but that is more trading.

The 2nd listing didn't show a PSU.

I'd also offer $350. While the Quad is still a good performer it kind of lost its' window to get cost back in a sale. You can buy newer cheaper tech that out-performs it now.

It would be used as a combination of HTPC, second PC & gaming rig.

What could you get that out performs this for $350?

That was just for the HTPC, for gaming you won't find anything new for $350 pre-built that would compare.

Also I was just stating the CPU individually would probably sell for $100-150 today and you can get an i5 or FX for the same cost.

What price would make this worth it? I dont want to pay $400. I was wanting to pay more like $200-250.

If I spend $100-150 on an i5 or Fx what does that get me? I already have a gaming rig that can play anything right now. My money would be better spent on getting a newer GPU or a 8350. Both of which are going to happen when I get my tax return.

My thought process is that I could get a PC that would do everything I want, but for much cheaper than building a lower tier build. This would be a fun little rig to tinker with and the Q6850 cpu seems like it could handle being paired up with my 6950 down the road when I upgrade. let me know if I am thinking about this wrong.

Thanks

For option 1
Specs:
- Intel Q6600 2.4ghz quadcore processor
- EVGA 750i SLI FTW motherboard
- 8GB Gskill Ram DDR2 1066
- Nvidia GTX 260 Video Card
- Corsair 750watt power supply
- 750GB Sata Harddrive
- Antec 900 Mid ATX case
- 3 intake fans
- 2 exhaust fans
- DVD/CD Burner Combo

I'd offer $350. It lists all the parts and looks ready to go. $300 would be a steal.

Option 2
Processor: Intel Quad Core 2 Extreme [email protected]
Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX275
HDD: 2x 150GB 10,000RPM Raptor Drives
Ram: 8GB DDR2 Ram
OS: Windows 7 HP
CD/DVD Drive
Asus Sli Ready Mother Board.
Almost New Logitec Keyboard and Mouse.

I'd actually go back and ask for more info. No PSU listed, what motherboard?
Same price range. $300-350.

Either of these systems would benefit a lot from a current series GPU like a HD7870 or GTX660. More so for the Q6850.

I am leaning towards the option 2. Seems like a better CPU and GPU to start with and then I can put my 6950 in it when I upgrade my sig rig with a 7950.

I would love to get that build for $250 because he has had literally no hits on his listing.
