    Hi,
    I have a PC with a i7 2600 3.4Ghz, 8GB RAM, a EVGA GTX 660 2GB GDDR5 a 2TB WD HDD and a Blu-Ray drive. Still has the recovery partition on the HDD so will be factory restored to Windows 7 Home Premium.
    Its 3DMark "Skydiver" score is 14558 and it runs GTA V on very high settings at a pretty solid 60fps @1080p (hovers around 54fps when driving through busy areas)
    I would like to swap it for an Alienware Alpha console. Not fussed about the configuration, just as long as it's complete and in good condition!

    I'm only swapping as I need the small console form factor to tuck away and the Alpha fits the bill perfectly.

    PC is this, but with the GTX 66o Installed.

    Yes, it's will be more than capable for those! Not wanting to talk myself out of a potential sale, but it would actually be waaaay overkill for basic office tasks or home media use lol

    Appreciated.

    I couldn't be further away as I'm Rochdale. Would it be safe to courier? Or are you near Poole 7th July onwards.

    + Have you had the notification to install Windows 10? Ideally I need Windows 7 Pro for my business needs.

    Well, I could FedEx it to Rochdale but it I may have to ask more for it as I imagine that would cost quite a bit!

    I would ensure that its very well packaged so wont come to any harm.

    Is it self built? Reason I ask I bought one from here a few years back & it was shoddy.

    If it was self built I'd be reluctant unless it came with 6 months parts warranted.

    Depending on the above, could you get a price to OL11.

    No not at all, it's an HP!
    And a very nice looking one too :)
    Only thing I've done is replace the graphics card. (I have the box for that and will include it)

    I'm not keen on self builds, hence me wanting to get the little Alienware.

    Regarding the courier, I can send it from work and it would cost me £12 to do that. It would be a FedEx next day service.

    However, I don't think I can ship it till Monday!

    Would you mind doing a computer screen grab of the spec test?

    Very good I'd say. The CPU is still very good and no need to change it at all. It pretty much the best you can get without changing socket's. That would mean a new motherboard and CPU.

    The GPU is good for a while yet, as mentioned it plays GTA V on very high settings at near 60fps. And again, changing it would mean a new motherboard.

    To be honest, unless you want to do some SERIOUS gaming on it, I wouldn't worry upgrading it at all for quite a while.

    Appreciated.

    On the agreement it's packaged safetly (your iTrader rating is spot on so I've no concerns on that), would you offer 4 months parts warranty? Replacement like for like?

    If yes to the above I'll offer asking including postage mate.

    Even though I'm 100% confident you wont have any problem's with it, I cant offer any kind of warranty Im afraid.

    The PC is out of warranty and has no issue's and will probably tick along perfectly for many years, but if in 3 month time the CPU packed up I wouldn't be in the financial position to be able to spend £130 odd on replacing it for you!
    I'd also have no evidence that it would have just failed naturally, and not due to an overclocking attempt etc!
    Not saying you would do that, just showing you from my point of view lol

    Hope you understand?
