    So i have been looking around Ebay for possible new systems in the new year

    I see a few well established sellers knocking out core2duo and core2quads for under £400 inc VAT and delivery

    all of which seem fairly high spec, most include a 512 or even 1Gb GFX card, a very large hard drive, snazzy case, 1 or 2gb's and even 4gb's of RAM

    i tried pricing these up to build myself and i was hitting £700 easily after VAT and delivery

    for example:

    The CPU alone is near £150 anywhere else i can find

    i know they dont include monitors but i have one anyway along with all the software i need, or is that the reason they are so cheap?

    It'll be some bloke in his bedroom with no overheads etc, doing a proper business so he will probably make under the tax threshold and also could be VAT exempt.

    Yeah like GBL states, they probably bought them in Bulk if you look at this website although it doesn't show the ebay name the parts are the same and if you look under google there is a link to that website under millenium-computers 8)

    There's some stonking bit of kit on their for a very low price:biggrin
