A guy at work is selling me his box which includes.

Acer veritron M490G socket 1156 with an i3 - 540
8 Gigs generic Samsung Ram
1.5 Tb hard drive filled with 1080p movies
1Tb hard drive for the OS with Windows 10
Nvidia 9600 GT
Acer case which is quite nice
17 or 19 inch monitor (haven't go it yet)
Cheap gaming keyboard

He gave me the box to try. My GF says I have to buy it now because she wont let it go back due to all the Movies she has now meh.

Not worth it at all. Very old setup with an ancient GPU.

What are you intending on using that machine for?

You don't buy a PC because it has movies on.

Rather save a little more and you can get something so much better.


By the way, if you currently have the movies, just copy paste them to your PC :ROFLMAO: win -win

What would the value of a 1 Tb and 1.5 Tb hard drive be? Only items i could really transfer to new build.

If she wants the movies, why are you paying for it? I'd tell my gf to f off (I'm not joking) if she wanted to keep a PC because ' movies ' & have me pay for it... BTW buying a PC with movies on, without the original disks, is piracy.
