Ok i need all you computer guys to tell me if this is a good deal on a computer.

It is refurbished, but comes with a warranty. It will have an AMD 64 dual core 4200+ 2.2 GHZ (not sure if this is better than the pentium D dual core) 2 gig of RAM (expandable to 4 gig), a 250 GB hard drive, Nvidia GEforce 6150le graphics, (integrated, i plan on upgrading to a real vid card) Its PCI express. It comes with a 16x DVD burner.

It will cost $549 total shipped to my door. think this is a good deal? or is there a better place to buy a refurbished computer? I tried tigerdirect and new egg, but they had slightly less bang for the buck. I am looking for a used gaming machine so that i can afford it. and this one seemed pretty nice to me. what are your thoughts on this?

Sounds very much like mine and I paid way more for mine but it was new.

Fuck yeah that sounds good, what type of ram is it though. DDR2? And also, what company is the computer from. Some of them will restrict access to the bios so you can overclock or do anything.

the RAM is DDR2. what does this mean? is it somehow better than other RAM? The brand is an HP. I bought it off fry'selctronics.com.

one of you said you bought a similar system new. how much was it? just curious about how much i am really saving. if it's even that much at all.

If all you got was the tower then mine wasn't that much more, it would have been 699 by itself.

BTW AMD is better for gaming.....INTEL is better in an office enviroment...due to hyper threading.
