    So I found this pc for sale on craigslist and I was wondering if this would be a suitable tradeoff instead of making a new pc. My new build is going to be an i5 3470k a z77 extreme 4 and a gtx 760. Or should I go with this build? Im planning to play bf4 and the dayz standalone

    Looks like everything is retail price unless I'm missing something. Is this thing new or used? I'd rather have a single HD 7970/7950 over two low-end cards Crossfired together.

    Yeah, PASS!!! Those prices are not a sale deal at all! And Justin is 100%, get a single beefy card instead of crossfire lower end 1gb cards.

    Seems like you could get a newer gen processor for $225. No one wants to pay 1200 for a pc that is ~2 generations old.
