Question Buying My Comp of Ebay or am I?

Hey im looking for a computer that is good and is fast, ebay has a cheap custom built computer. I was wondering is this a cheap buy for me as far as everything goes? I'm looking to uprgade memory awhile after I have it, if I get it. I'm looking to be able to run BattleField 2. Also as this price goes do you have any disagreements on the buy? Please Help, this is a very cheap price on Ebay and there feed back has 7 negatives out of 5000. If you guys could please include reassons if there is, and or better buys from better people, Thanks for all the support please Reply

It is my opinion that you could build you're own computer, that would be better, for less $.

1. No operating system. You'll have to buy an OS which will cost you another $100-$150.

2. That video card sux. FX5500 is far from a great card.

you can build better, fx5500 is pretty much crap. Amd are better for gaming.

Did he just say DE**?? What's up with that? Dell is probably the worst thing you can do if you're capable of learning to put your own PC together. I mean, it's good if you're into unreliability, unupgradability, and throwing your money away.
