Amazon Fire HD 8 review: A brilliant combination of function and value – with one massive caveat
Hi everyone , and thanks for taking the time to read this post , I'm sure the question has been asked a 100 times . First of I'm using my phone right now I don't have a pc to upgrade etc , looking for something second hand and cheap as possible . I want to use it to store and play music , surf the net , download and stream movies through my tv . Store pictures and do basic editing to them . And the usual net surfing , play online poker no other gaming at all I have looked on eBay but have no idea which one is better than the next and if they are good or bad lol . The best reply would be one that said buy this pc in this link . One other thing how can I be sure a pc has in it what the seller says it has . Any tips or advice appreciated and thank you for reading this
I had a lap top before but its about 7 years old hard drive broken , think the fan also and I wired the power direct to the board as the connector kept breaking , The budget really is the cheapest I can pay for a pc that will do what I need . Really a case of looking on ebay or gumtree and buying the cheapest that will do what I need .
200 , to give a figure , I know I want get a lot for that maybe upgrade when funds become available
Again, depending on your budget you may be better off looking at a "refurbished" computer. You would get a warranty which you wouldn't get with a second hand one. As per iscanut's comments you may not get the spec. that is advertised.
I read on here about a program you can run that tells you about what is in the pc , not sure if the seller would be ok to let me do that or how long it would take . A refurbished pc might be a good idea , I'll look into that ,
I'm going to post details about pc's for sale , any advice on them would be appreciated
Thanks for the replies

Some random questions Can any pc be hooked up to a tv ? And can a pc be hooked up to my surround sound system what connections would it need .
If you fancy using the PC for more than a couple of years, XP is almost obsolete. It will be by early 2014.
It should work well, mine does, but spares are difficult to come by, as many parts are no longer in production. You may find that some, of the latest, kit will not work on it.
