I have a coworker who is selling his old gaming desktop. I've been considering building my own but haven't done much research yet and when this opportunity popped up I thought maybe I'd get a better deal than building my own, albeit used. Based on the accessories included alone it seems like a great deal, but can anyone tell me how much bang for my buck I'd be getting at this price with these components? For instance, how long can I expect these specs to keep me running for upcoming games? Any help is appreciated.
