This man has an idea of how the world works. 
 
 
Anyway 
  • M4A77TD Pro motherboard 
  • AMD phenom dual core processor BUT PLEASE NOTE I HAVE UNLOCKED THIS PROCESSOR TO QUAD CORE PHENOM B40 WHICH RUNS PERFECTLY at 3.60ghz 
  • 4gb ram 320 gb hard drive plus a 80 gb hard drive 
  • ASUS NVIDIA GEFORCE gtx 570 Directu ii Version i have easillyy overclocked this to run faster then a gtx 580 910 on core 2200 on memory
  
I'm not familiar with that MOBO, and is that AMD Phenom dual or quad core? That video card is great, the ram is a little low on size but it's very cheap to add 4 more gigs, and his hard drive is probably tired and needs a change. 
For 400 pounds which is a little over 2000 shekels for me, this is a pretty good deal, but you gotta inspect the PC and test the memory and the rest of the parts, make sure he didn't overclock them to death.

I wouldn't touch it, the only thing of any value is the video card and it's probably been run hard.

Link us to this guy. If he can't use periods then I wouldn't trust him.
