I bought a Dell 745 off Ebay a few years ago. The seller had thrown in 16gb ram and a 2tb drive. But I had to get a graphics card for it. I got a used Radeon SFF low profile for twenty bucks and now it's fine for low end gaming. And I did have to get a usb wifi dongle for it. I got one for a dollar out of China, works fine. For cheap low end gaming, these systems aren't bad. But many of them have the original cmos battery and they are starting to need replacing. As long as you do that, you shouldn't have issues. Most of those systems come with a terrible integrated video that won't play anything. You have to put a video card in. For super cheap low end budget gaming, they're fine.

you can build something x58 based for not too much money nowadays, ok the mainboards are not exactly cheap but you can find bargains here, i got a w3550 xeon cpu for 6 gbp and a set of 3 x 2gb for 25 gbp a new 250gb ssd are quite affordable nowadays about 40 gbp there is even a deepcool malestrom water cooler for 37 gbp if you wanted do some overclocking and obviously you can spend what you like on a psu case and gpu and if you get a decent gpu and psu you should be able to play modern games at 1080p quite easily

You guys gave up on the integrated graphics way too easily. That thing is listed as having a GMA X4500, which is supposedly quite good (relative to integrated GPUs' reputation for sucking), especially with custom drivers. I mean, my vastly more useless GMA 3150 lets me play half the games I've tried. Here are a couple of lists of games tested on the X4500: http://augmentarium.blogspot.com/2011/09/gma-4500-game-list.html http://gmax4500play.blogspot.com/2016/08/top-best-games-since-2010-that-intel.html In fact, I've been so surprised by the supposedly useless GMA 3150 that I now do not buy at all the constant dismissal integrated graphics get from gamers. I'm currently upgrading and have ordered a used office PC with an integrated HD 4600 and I intend to use it without a discrete graphics card. I'm too tired of those dying on me every few years and needing expensive replacements. And every game I'm interested in running either straight up has HD 4000 in the minimum requirements or has people reporting they can run it fine on HD 4000 or 4400/4600. And if more demanding games come out that I'm interested in, 5 years from now I could buy one of those low-profile low-power cards. By then I should be able to find one that's several times as powerful as the 4600 and cheap enough that it won't be too much of a loss if it dies on me in 3-4 years. Meanwhile the CPU (i5-4670) is set to last me at least a decade and by extension so is the motherboard. I mean, the Core 2 Duo I've been using for 11 years is still quite adequate for gaming and will continue to be adequate for years to come. And if I do get a discrete card and it dies, I'll have the decently powerful integrated graphics to fall back on so I'll be able to play almost everything while arranging a replacement. The only thing that worries me is the durability of the HP power supply. And replacing that one won't be straightforward since the board and PSU use a proprietary main power connector and to use a standard PSU I'd need an adapter.

Upgrading a off lease business box is one of the best ways to build on a budget, not necessarily something quite this old but Optiplex 3020/7020/9020 MT type stuff can be had crazy cheap and includes the memory, pretty decent haswell processor often hard drive, ram, case, and most important a valid Windows COA for sometimes under $200. You have to buy an adapter for ATX 24 pin to 8 pin dell to put a new PSU but those are available on ebay with prime and even with a EVGA 600B and a used GPU or even a new GPU you end up well under the price of building a similarly performant system from scratch.

As much as I love socket 775 it's just such a massive limitation these days. Yeah the system was cheap as hell but you're getting at best Core 2 Quad and it you're willing to put one of those weird pin things on your processor maybe a xeon but pretty much anything you can put in it even overclocked will end up being a bottleneck in modern games. You basically need at least 1366 or 1156 if you want anything remotely intensive to not totally bottleneck your card.

I had this exact PC setup as my first gaming computer, got it for 50 bucks because the HDD went out, threw a graphics card in it and to make it fun I had to cut the case , played just cause 2 and Garrys mod all day every day....graphics card stuck out like an inch on the top. Still running to this day, passed it on to my little sister for a minecraft machine. Core 2 duos are still reliable workhorses I must say.

I am pretty sure that the shipping was intentionally marked up. I've heard that the expenses on online sites like that come from the main cost of the product, and it doesn't touch shipping and handling costs. So you can mark up the "handling" part and lower the 'main cost' in order to be sneaky with ebay's cut.
