HP Pavilion Elite Makes Me Money

Hey guys,   This is the pc I bought which got me into PC's and flipping them. I got this pc for 110 dollars.  It came with a keyboard, mouse, Logitech speakers, and monitor. This was when I barely knew that I could take the side cover off a computer. I really liked this computer, it had an i7 and to me, at the time I thought i7 was the best. I didn't even know there were different version and generations of the i7. Here is how this Hp Pavilion made me money. Before I sold the computer I gave it a fresh install of windows 10 because the previous owner didn't delete everything from it and I had to learn to do that. I ended up selling the computer for 130 dollars and just the tower nothing else. The reason I sold it was I picked up 30 dollar gaming rig which I was told worked, but once I sold this one. I got home and plugged it into the computer wouldn't show up on the monitor long story short it ended up just being the graphics card and I swapped it for a new one. I tried new cables and everything none of it worked besides a graphics card. In the end, I got to keep a monitor, keyboard, speakers, a mouse, and 20 dollars. This computer is was a real decent computer and did everything I wanted it too. I would recommend to anyone trying to just surf the web, watch videos, and even some light gaming. This PC could handle a lot more if it had an upgraded graphics card and maybe a power supply. The computer came with MSRP of $1,099.99 dollars. The computer started off with windows 7, but somewhere along the long it was upgraded to windows 10. It was really neat to learn from this computer and see what I would want/need in my next pc. Since this was such a base model computer, it showed and made me appreciate higher end rigs. This also goes to show you that anyone can really flip PC's and it's not hard to do at all.    Hp Pavilion Elite e9270f CPU: Intel Core I7 860 2.8 GHz MAX: 3.46 GHz RAM: 8GB 4x2GB MAX:16GB HDD: 1TB GPU: ATI Radeon HD4650 PSU: 350W MOTHERBOARD: MSI MS-7613     Hope you enjoy this little pc flip, catch you later!

PC Part Lot

This a PC part lot that I got for 100 dollars and I have no idea if anything works.... I will find out later and post about it again! When I first pulled to this house to buy these parts, I was already a little sketched out considering the location I was at and I was somewhere I was not familiar. The person selling all these components had found them in the basement of a house that she was currently flipping. When I first got all of this, I was super pumped. Considering that all of my stuff I buy is second hand and i'm just starting out in the PC world. First impression was awesome. It looked like it all would work. Once I got home I realized how gross all the stuff. The graphics card had so much corrosion on it, i'll include a pic. The Gigabyte motherboard box had like rat poop in it. Some of the DDR2 ram had this bug in like a sac in it, that looked like a little worm. Some of the other ram just looked like someone put gel in it and touch it with dirty hands. The hard drive ports were a little destroyed.  I cleaned it all up and tried to get it to worked, but sadly it wouldn't. It was all pretty gross, I definitely washed my hands after this.    Memory (DDR3) -OCZ 2gb (2) -G.Skill RipJawsX 2gb (3) -Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2) -Bunch of DDR2 Ram   Graphics Card -Vapor-x Radeon HD 5770   Hard Drive -Seagate barracuda 1500 gb   Mother Boards -Gigabyte 78LMT-S2P -ASUS M5A 78L-M   Also got a evga 6 pin power cable   ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************* UPDATE Sadly not all of this worked. I'll make a list of what did and didn't. I actually got my money back and just bought the Asus motherboard for 10 dollars and she gave me some of the ram back to see if I could get it too work. The graphics card she gave to me for free. In the end it worked out good. Memory (DDR3) -OCZ 2gb (2) (didn't work) -G.Skill RipJawsX 2gb (3) (didn't work) -Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2) (didn't work) -Bunch of DDR2 Ram (I didn't have anything to test it on)   Graphics Card -Vapor-x Radeon HD 5770 (Worked)   Hard Drive -Seagate barracuda 1500 gb (didn't work)   Mother Boards -Gigabyte 78LMT-S2P (didn't work) -ASUS M5A 78L-M (I assumed it works) ********Pictures of the components after closer inspection*******
