WHAT.... $650 for a used computer... I wouldn't, but I don't know what all that stuff means that you listed. Have you priced out a new one?

Unless the computer comes with all its original information (booklets and/or CDs), and there is a good chance it doesn't, I wouldn't spend $650 on a three year old computer - least of all a gaming computer if your intention is to use it for gaming. You can find a completely compatible machine, though it may not be intended for gaming (again, if that is your intention.) the majority of new machines are capable, for slightly cheaper and you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're the first person to have used it.

(This was Shari's somewhat tech savy middle child. Hope this helps!)
