Steer well clear of this. Remember that if something is priced as cheaply as this is (when compared to what you would pay for the same at a reputable retailer), you need to ask yourself why. To give you an idea of what I mean, I've just purchased a Crossfire Bridge from Amazon for just a couple of quid less than this seller is asking for a full i7 system.

Caveat emptor.

To start with, I inherited this PC with 2 SATA drives and 1 IDE drive. Jacked up from the beginning as it naturally boots off the IDE master then has to search out the primary OS partition on SATA 1, but that's not my real problem since it boots ok. The problem is a 320gb drive on SATA 2, which...
