Default Buying A Gaming Desktop

Guys, I have the chance to buy a gaming desktop that consist of. Black Case with a see through panel, on the side it has a multi-colored light fan, same with on top. It has a pink light on the bottom by itself. and it has color lights around the sides of the front panel.
It has a Amd Athlon 64 4400+ dual core processor. Nvidia 6800xt video card, gaming surround sound speakers. Windows Xp Pro with service pack 2. Comes with speakers, the cpu and keyboard. the guy wants $400 bucks for it he said he has almost $800 bucks tied up in it. He's gonna work with me since he knows I want it and he's a very recommendable computer technician and he owns a computer store.

I would say that it's a great gaming computer for $400. The video card is great to overclock, and the processor is great.

Yeah, that's a really good deal for $400. I'd go for it, maybe tweak it later on.

seems a litle odd on the price the 4400+ is worth 400$ but the video card sucks what mobo does he got and how much ram and how big of hard drives and how fast are they i know people who build beastly comps but put 5400rpm hd to keep it cheap so in the end there system ends up sucking anyway

Mobo Just means Motherboard, depending on what is installed will govern how upgradable in the future your PC is.

mobo = motherboard

Since he's a tech, runs a computer shop, and is going to work with you (so if it dies he's still there), I say grab it and run! that's a very sweet deal.
