NO a thousand times NO.

He has no feedback. It's Ebay. You know nothing about him. If it is legit, it's got nearly a week to get into the hundreds of pounds.

What? Would you sell 200 for 10? Look, if it's too good to be true, it probably is...
If it get's towards a more reasonable range, and you're willing to pay, you are protected by paypal/ebay to a certain extent (if you can wait for you're money back).

Take the previous poster's advice - steer clear. Do you also notice it is a stock photo and not a real photo of the items he is selling which would make me think - does he actually have these goods ?

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...
