I'd watch out - their eBay ad doesn't inspire confidence due to several errors about the construction of the system.

It's your money, your interest.

Why ask strangers to decide it for you...when it's obvious (to me) that you want a favorable answer?

why would he stick nvidia cards into an AMD machine. Sure they'll work most likely but why? and using 2 9500 GTs..achieve a better effect using a 9800 or a 4850.
Was going to make a comment on the insane FSB they report on it but after reading on hypertransport i'm shocked and amazed and thinking maybe the next board/cpu i buy will be amd lol

I think you could find a better computer. I'm not really aware of the price difference between you guys, and us in the United States, but I don't think I would even pay $500 U.S. (which is probably close to half the price you would be paying) for it. Two 9500GT graphics card's is a waste. They are pretty medium-low end card's, and a better card for about the same price of the two would probably be much better.

You should also know that it doesn't come with an operating system either. A disc to install windows costs at least $100 U.S.

Also, the processor isn't really 14.4ghz either.. It's really 2.2ghz. Scammer's try to trick people into thinking the processor is blazing fast by taking the frequency the processor run's at, and multiplying it by how many cores it has. In this case though, he didn't even quadruple the right number...

You asked for opinions and he gave you his opinion. The same as usasma gave his opinion on using eBay, or Sterling14 saying you could do better with a different computer

Surely you don't think that every opinion is going to praise you for making such a wise choice. If you did, then why even ask
