Seriously except for the video card they fill it with old stuff, phenom 9550 is more then 2 yeas old and already EOL for about a years:P But for a fdree computer it's pretty good I would take it:P If you have a better rig sale part and upgrade your main rig:P

Ask for more.

pretty cool for free, I'd just plunk in a 550 or something. What exactly is the damage, the photo just looks like garble to me.
