    I found one on ebay with a quad core for almost $50 and was wondering if its over clockable or upgradeable or even gameable

    Depends on the specs, 770 series aren't meant for gaming.

    Not worth 50 bucks, specs suck for what is needed today.

    It's a desktop tower. Yes. However id recommend you at least spend $400 if you want to game.

    Depends on the form factor, SFF can only use low profile and Tower can use standard profile, but don't waste your money on this Optiplex 755.

    $50 is a bit of a stretch. I got one for $25 with monitor (but that was a school). Aside from that, I think you'd be forced to use a Windows 7 32-bit anything above that will take up all resources just for the OS. Maybe you can play Nintendo 64 emulators, I doubt gamecube or citra. When I installed mine, I had to overcome said obstacles to see stability in emulators. NES, SNES without a doubt could be run. Idk about linux but if you can run Win7 I'll bet you can run Ubuntu or something.

    This is the gpu that I tested on the optiplex and worked without any incompatibility issues on Windows 7. Since you are looking for older hardware idk If you'll find the drivers updated to work with different parts. I had to sift through old drivers on the site for this dung.
