pulled this from the AMD site for the card:
ATI Radeon™ X1650 Specifications
* Dual-link DVI
* Twelve pixel shader processors
* Five vertex shader processors
* 128-bit 4-channel DDR/DDR2/GDDR3 memory interface
* Native PCI Express x16 bus interface
* AGP 8x configurations also supported with AGP-PCI-E external bridge chip
* Dynamic Voltage Control
Judging by this ALONE, the motherboard it is in should be able to upgrade to a more modern card. Please understand that this card was sub 100 dollars in 2007. so honestly I dont even think 200 is a fair price for this "PC"
you are purchasing a old OS(XP)
a smallish hdd that at best is worth 25 bucks and 10 bucks worth of ram.
I would think you would be better served purchasing a bare bones system and building your own, or if you simply must purchase this one, offer them 100 dollars as is where is, and then start replacing the parts with better stuff. It makes no sense to purchase a system that out of the box you can not do what you wanted it to with out upgrading the parts first.
You, yes YOU! STAND STILL WITH IT! How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?
