Used vs. New Hardware

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am planning on building a PC for light gaming.  I need recommendations for the GPU and Motherboard.


These are the parts that I am planning on using:

i3 9100f (already have it) ~ Using the stock cooler

8GB DDR4 2400MHz (already have it)

B365 Motherboard;  Used Option, New Option ~ I would like to stay under $80

600w 80+ Thermaltake Power Supply (already have it)

240GB SSD (already have it)

1TB 7200rpm HDD (already have it)

DIYPC Solo-T2-BK (already have it)

For the GPU i'm not really sure, I was thinking RX 570 or RX 580, or GTX 970 or 980 ~ I would like to stay under $130 (I've found the RX 570 & GTX 970 are selling for about $90 including shipping, and the RX 580 & GTX 980 are selling for $110)


I was wondering if it would be worth buying used hardware when for $20 more I can get a brand new B365 Motherboard and for $30 more I can get a brand new RX 570.  I am completely open to changing the GPU and Motherboard options I've gathered if you can find something better or that makes more sense.  Any input is greatly appreciated!
