Default Good Deal?

I'm looking at building a second machine for home use from scratch, but i don't have a lot of $$. I found a combo at ebay cheap I think, It seems like a lot of hardware for the money. Can anyone help me out?
Here is the link hardware

thanks

I emailed the seller and he said the board was the M7MIA-R and I found the specs here. http://www.biostar-usa.com/products/...ia-r_specs.htm He also said that the board will support up to 2000+ and send me this link with people's overclocking http://www.sysopt.com/userreviews/mb...r_M7MIA-R.html and it looks like guys are running over 2ghz.
Thanks for the tips.

Even if the board is an early rev, the BIOS will likely support anything up to 2000+, but it doesn't meet AMD spec because it will report the actual clock speed rather than the P-Rating. The new BIOS update would fix that.

*NOTE* Biostar, and most everything ending in *star SuCkS! They are cheap boards, and won't last but like a year or so... (My experices... not yours; i could be wrong)
