Default Is this PC Any good?

A friend of mine is selling his pc, no special price for me or anything he sells it to everyone who is interested in it for 250,- euros.. It looked like there was something wrong with it because the price is incredibly low for this computer, 19 inch flatscreen and a really high tech keyboard + mouse. The only downside is that it's a selfbuild pc with no OS on it. Can anyone tellme if it;s any good?

Selfmade PC, 4 years old.
Componenten:

Motherboard: ASUS M2N4 SLI
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ (3.01 GHZ)
Memory : 4 GB
Grafical card: 2x XFX Geforce 8600 GTS XXX ( in SLI, so 2 installed grafical cards in it )
Cooler: Watercooling, with extra liquidcooling
PC closet/housing: Thermaltake Armor Jr. (very nice blue colored closet/housing).
HDD: 500GB

Flatscreen: Packard Bell 19" Flatscreen
Keyboard: Logitech G15 with LCD screen
Mouse: Logitech Laser mouse
Caution: This pc has no OS installed, considering it's a selfbuild pc. I do have all ioriginal CD's with drivers for the components.

Askingprice: € 250,-

So do you guys think I should buy it? Would I have some nice FPS numbers playing RO? Or is it just not worth it...

I really hope someone can help me ;p

Edit; I think Ive should've posted this in the inn? Sorry..

Pricing seems fair considering it is secondhand, perhaps a bit lower than I would've expected.

The CPU is decent but slightly outdated, I can't say for the RAM (What MHz per stick?), I've not heard of that exact graphics card model before but I'm guessing it's going to be substandard by todays standards but having two of them is an improvement at the cost of a higher PSU usage and lastly the HDD isn't exactly huge and I'm guessing it has standard 5400rpm or 7200rpm at most.

Overall it seems a good deal for that price range, of course if you're looking for a new computer I'd suggest buying new as you can easily get better if you have the budget.

He didn't give any info about the RAM tbh so I can't answer that question.

But if I undestand you right, you're saying this PC is decent, and I will get decent FPS numbers but if I want a really nice gaming pc I should look further?

Then I will assume it's the standard 1333MHz per stick, in which case the RAM is meh.

Yes, if you're looking to spend money on a good computer and don't find the prospect of upgrading constantly appealing, grab an extra few hundred euros and look elsewhere.
Preferably find a good site to custom-build your own.

Well indeed I don't really would like to keep upgrading my pc constantly, and putting my own custom-build pc is what I would like to do in the future if I have enough money to test things on, for now I want a nice Game PC/School pc, well we all know a pc doesn't have to be a beast to help for school. Gaming is a nother story though, and what's 'and extra few hundred euros' ? Around 500 euros? Or around 1000 ;p ?

Of course, if you're looking for a temporary computer that you don't intend to use intensively then this second hand one fits the bill magnificently.

It depends, go for the best you can get for your budget but 750+ will get you a desktop to be proud of at least for a few years.
I do know a very helpful site you can build your own computer and order from but I'm not sure whether they cater outside of the UK.

I just want to play RO on at least shader model 3 with nice graphics and around 40 FPS in a 30vs30 war, for the rest there's not much I would really like to do with it (except for school of course but then again school projects don't really need a magnificent computer) would I get that much FPS with the computer I showed in the first post?

And would you mind giving me that website? Would like to have a look myself ;p

I'm fairly confident that said computer would manage to meet those requirements, perhaps with a slightly lower FPS (Again, a graphics card that I don't recognize so I can't be sure).

You will need to be at least vaguely familiar with computer hardware in order to know exactly what is what.
