Hey guys, Ebay is not bad, just get sealed or new stuff. I got my Pentium D 820 proc, Intel D945PSN mobo, Windows XP Pro, Adobe Photoshop elements and Premire pro for $330 w/ S/H. its a great deal, if your looking for a cheap dual core solution.

Make sure you read the details very carefully. My friend just sold a PICTURE of an xbox360 for $500. He stated that it was a picture but the bidders were too busy to read it carefully enough. I know that this doesnt happen often (or i hope that it doesnt) so just watch out.

And.....after the buyer complains and the cost is over $500 for a picture, the buyer can actually file a crimial complaint with the FBI! Hang on dude, someone will be giving him call!!! It is a class 1, internet fraud felony and they do prosecute!!! Yikes! By the way, I buy and sell regularly on Ebay. I have bought a bunch of puter components and only been burned a couple of times.....never buy anthing that is listed as "As Is". "As Is" = S**T!!! I did have one huge proplem when I bought a XFX 6800 gt and the GPU was fried. Kid said it was never oc'd (a lie). I simply called xFx and explained what happend and they gave me an RMA # and a New Card!!! If you pay using Paypal you will get automatic buyer protection anyway! I like e Ebay!

There's some good stuff on eBay and there's some junk stuff as well. Like others have said, read the auction up and down and check the sellers feedback. I have bought and sold many things on eBay with no problems yet.
