One of my new toys
 
I just bought a used Dell 9300, which has been pinmodded to 2.13 Ghz, ram is 2GB, 60GB 7200 HD, 17" flawless screen, and both the GPU and CPU have AS5 applied. The best part is the 7800 GTX, the famous upgrade. It has a clean run of XP Pro on it, and all drivers on a cd as well as installed and an XP disc. Also, the used leather case.

Ran this overclocked for games, and it's fine, can play Crysis on high, and most other games run just great.

Condition: Replaced the whole top plastic case with the 9400 edition, with new mouse pad buttons, and the keyboard with a brand new one. The screen has full pixels and looks like new still. Everything else works on it, including the DVDRW. As for wear and tear, it's got quite a few marks on the bottom and some on top as it came that way. Nothing which affects performance obviously.

I picked this up for about 650. I think I did pretty good. Opinions?

What resolution you playing Crysis at? High is not impossible to play at a lower resolution.

Crysis challenge is a playing on high/enthusiast at 1920x1200 or higher.

That is cut and paste from an email from the seller. I should have it next week and will update the thread with gaming performance.

And 'high' does not necessarily mean 'max'. To me 'max' is all settings as high as they will go (res, AA, etc), where 'high' can mean just about anything above minimum. I'll find out for sure next week.
