Second Hand Gaming PC Purchase


Active Member
I am looking for a cheap pc for some office work and 1080p gaming. Mainly older games and will consider upgrading in the future. I have found a second hand pc on gumtree which by description was built by Overclockers.

I have attached the spec, does £275 seem reasonable for this?

It does not give the system board name, size of case or PSU power rating. To me it does not look too bad but I'd ask for a bit more detail. But as you only want to play older games the CPU and RAM will be fine, you've got an SSD for the OS and a fave game or two and 1TB HDD for storage.

What games were you thinking of playing? I had a GTX770 and it performed very well on older games at 1080p you may need to turn some stuff down but here's a link for a comparison between the 760 and 770. The CPU is 6 years old but it should be fine for older games. You won't have much of an upgrade path apart from a GPU but I'll let others comment.

Thanks for the reply, apart of me still wonders whether to wait and spend double on a cheap ITX Ryzen build for hopefully £550-£600.

Apart of me really wants to try the new Jurassic World game.
