(I don’t know if there is a specific section for asking questions like these, so I do apologise if I’m posting in the wrong place)

 

So I’m looking to buy a new computer and I see this one for £650 that a buddy of mine put onto Facebook. Just want to know if this is worth me buying?

Yeah I know I could go for brand new, but Christmas did hit my bank relatively hard and my current pc is starting to run into some issues so I wouldn’t be able to wait till March/April to have the funds sadly.

ah, bummer... well, it's a bit on the high side, but knowing the used market a bit and knowing it's your friend, it isn't that bad.

That's a pretty damn good price. I'd get it and, if you can, throw in a used 6700k/7700k.

For itx? It's got a good overclock motherboard, an SSD, a 980ti, and a great power supply.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

Eh, it's an ok price. Not the best price ever, but ok.

 

If you sell your current parts, you might be able to recoup a bit of cash too. (The RAM alone can still sell for at least £50 on ebay)

It's old tech I wouldn't pay more than 150 pounds for a 980ti and 150 for a cpu mobo combo.

Since this post, I have looked around and it looks like the best that I'm going to get without going out of the way to find parts all over the shop and build it myself. I'm going to keep my current PC and keep it as a spare, mostly for my mrs to game with me. Cheers for the reply's though!
