Default Is this a good system to invest in?

Hey everyone. Just wondering what you think I should offer for this system. These are the specs he provides. It is a medion computer and has not been upgraded(I dont think). I already own 2 medions and have only good experiences witht the company so this comp is pretty appealing even as a pre-built.

How much should I offer for it?

Maybe around 700. Depends on the type of ram and HDD.

I'd get a Radeon 9600 Pro/XT instead of the Geforce FX5200

Ya, I agree. If you are a bigtime gamer and want to play every game with everything on the highest detail, go for the Radeon 9600XT or any other cheap but good video card.

If you are not a very big PC Gamer, that card will run almost every game, but just not on the highest detail available.

Besides that, the computer is pretty good!

wow really you dont think its up to the job of high detail on all the games? I dont know much about video card specs as I only have an 800mhz heap with integrated video

But when I saw that it was 256 mb, I was like, whoa, thats serious.
My dad has a 64mb geforce 4 and it runs UT2k4 just fine on high res/detail. Cant really think of a more demanding game than that.
