    I'm thinking the 3rd computer (i7 2.8 and geforce 6200) is the best bang for the buck. I can probably swap out the crappie graphics card. But what are your guys opinion?

    None of them build it or buy the parts and have someone build it for you.

    The third one as you said is very cheap. However they all appear to have very low clock speeds, which are very important for gaming. If I were forced to choose one of those 3, I would likely go with the top one due to the higher clock speed, ram and cool sounding case.

    Forgot to mention, since it is Craigslist you might be able to negotiate a better price by contacting the seller, and make sure to inspect the system and make sure all the hardware is there before you take out your cash. Perform your due diligence and what not.

    You sure about the i7 6200 combo? I mean the CPU and the GPU are at least 5 years apart.

    So what would be a good price to negotiate? I can try chop down the $200 pc to $100 or $500 to $200

    Sorry, I'm not the best person at negotiating. I'm usually on the other side of the coin, and I'll usually undersell things depending on other stuff currently being sold on Craigslist, EBay, Amazon, etc. :v

    BTW; The clock speed (e.g. 4.20 GHz) doesn't necessarily determine how good a CPU is. What matters is the exact model number (or as much info as possible) on each CPU.

    What are you going to be doing on the computer?

    I was hoping any of these would run GTA 5 on maybe Medium to Max settings.

    Sorry brother these computer the parts they have wont run that game on high, maybe low but I'm not sure haven't looked into them but they aren't current. Gta 5 requires some power, I had a gtx 770 and I could run it on medium smoothly and high with a bit under 60 fps.

    If you're going to buy one of these off craigslist you can either wait and save up or buy one use it for now and then swap out parts, gtx card, psu, cpu If you can.

    Your sarcasm isn't needed.

    Those computers are terrible and a waste of money you would have to be a fool to buy them. They could not even play anything on low 20+FPS
