    Buying a prebuilt computer is this a good deal?

    So I was about to buy a computer from a guy I dont really know and was wondering how these specs sound. Right now the specs kill my current set up but I want to feel good about making this purchase so i come to you mmo-champion members for your knowledge!

    SPECS

    OSS:Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
    HSF:COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 RR-920-N520-GP 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Intel Core i7 compatible
    CDROM/BDRW:CDLITE-ON Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 8MB Cache SATA 12X Blu-ray Burner with Blu-ray 3D feature
    RAM:CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 4GB (2 x 2GB)
    CPU:AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition 3.2...(OVERCLOCKED 3.9 ghz)
    EVGA 01G-P3-1366-TR GeForce GTX 460 SE 1GB.....HDMI PORT BUILT IN
    MoB:GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3......6 CORE CPU...USB 3.0....HOLDS 16 GB of RAM
    PSU: Cooler Master 700 Watt
    6 x USB:3.0
    HDD:Seagate 1tb
    FAN: 2 x 120MM
    Dude is asking 700 Is this a rip or a decent deal for someone who doesn't want to take the risk in building one himself?

    Edit* also wondering if these specs could handle swtor?

    You could probably build your own at equal specs for that price, it's alright though.

    If you get receipts for every component showing those really arent older than 6 months and preferably still under manufacturer warranty, it's fairly decent deal. It's not optimal for SWToR, but you wont get better for less money.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    I'd say that it's a fairly decent deal, as long as you get the proper receipts (warranty), manuals and boxes. Also make sure you check so the Windows license is proper (legit). If you can, make sure to check that the computer is properly built and doesn't have any apparent flaws (like damaged fans).

    For reference, this is what a custom computer (excluding Windows) would offer:
    Budget Gaming 650
    MoBo: ASRock H67M (B3)$79.99
    CPU: Intel i5 2400$189.99
    RAM: G.Skill 1600MHz Ripjaws 2x2GB$29.99
    GPU: HIS Radeon 6870$169.99
    HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500GB$89.99
    PSU: Enermax NAXN 450W$44.99
    Case: CM Elite 430$49.99 Review
    --------------------------------------------------
    Estimated Total Price – $655

    Recommended for:
    Strong budget gaming build that can tackle
    most newer games. Has a fairly nice upgrade
    path as well.
