I'm not the most tech savvy fellow around and I just want to know if this is a rip-ff. If any of these brands are super unreliable, or something. It feels too cheap to be true.

AMD Quad Core 3.2Ghz Desktop with GIGABYTE Motherboard, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB SATA2 Hard Drive, 24X DVD Burner and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

For 600 dollars.

What do you want to do with the PC?

The graphics card is poor!

As for value I live in the UK so it's hard to say.Here in the UK just a quick search on each item Graphics card,Memory,Hard drive,Case with Power supply,Processor,CD/DVD drive,Motherboard & window7 home premium 64bit comes to approx £412.

Possibly you could get it cheaper with a bit more searching.

Obviously with no return to base warranty
