$600.. Wouldn't pay more for it and would pull the GPU right away too.

That said I'm not familiar with how much the loops are worth.. though they are for an old platform and an old card though thats just the blocks.

Why would you pull the gpu?.. It runs cool only about 54c max load. Runs the 3 games ive played so far at max setting at 1920x1080 at around 65fps (cod black ops ,grid ,Battlefield bad company 2). I definitely didn't pay anything close to 600$. I love it so far haven't had any issues and everything is in mint condition for being built at the beginning of 2010. :P

Sounds like you got a great deal on it. Im surprised, usually everyone on kijiji prices their systems too high

Looks really nice. The graphics card is definitely to weakest component, but if you are happy with the fps, then it's good enough. Enjoy!

Edit... If you don't mind saying, what did you pay?

Wow that seems like a very good deal like others have said if you plan on upgrading anything upgrade the graphics card but there is no point if it is working good for you.

I would have said $500, primarily for the watercooling components. Without the watercooling the rig would be probably worth around $350-$400 I'd guess.

Pretty good deal, IMO.
