|I was looking at building a socket 1156 system and it comes to about $780 w/tax+shipping.|
I saw this refurb socket 775 system for $424.
Is this a good deal, being refurbished?
Then if so, can this mobo overclock the CPU easily?
Then if so, should the lack of a PCI Express 2.0 x16, be a deal killer?

I know this isn't a gaming system and I am not a gamer. Although, I would add a basic PCI Express x16 graphics card.

I don't know anything about the HP cases, PSU, etc., but it looks like a solid foundation to retrofit a socket 1156 mobo in a year or so.
