Second hand PC building rant

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Waddup forums!

 

So I'm having a good time. People around me know that I'm good at building PC's and picking parts to whatever they'll use them for, so I have some "business" going on there.

There's this one guy, Robin, he's got a boner for mITX and he loooves just buying hardware. More harware than he can use, honestly.

Yesterday I was at his place, building his 4th (5th coming next week) mITX PC becuase "Nah the 1060 isn't good enough as a secondary PC GPU y'know, so I bought an entire new system".

 

So I sigh loudly, ask him in a friendly way if it's really necessary, he sort of agrees that it's not but you know how some bonheads can be!

Anyhow; I finish it up, install windows so all he has left is the drivers. Our deal is that he pays me per PC, one build is around 40$ (some may argue that this is too expensive, meet me in comments)

But this time he proposed another deal, a deal which meant that I'd get some of his parts that, right now, is doing nothing but collect dust.

I was intrigued and said "Sure why the hell not, whatcha got?" Since I LOVE just having parts to build and play around with.

 

He gives me an Asus Z97 Pro Gamer 1150 MOBO, 8GB RAM DDR3 LP Crucial with a VS 550w PSU mounted in a Fractal Design R5 Black Pearl with a windowed panel.

 

So I'm standing there like "What the fuck is going on here", and ask him if he's entirely sure. I told him that this is worth WAY more than the cash I usually get for helping him, and getting payed is something he insists on doing (I suggested to begin with to do it for free, but as mentioned he's quite stubborn). He says something like "Yeah I really don't mind, I don't have any LGA 1150 CPU's laying around and I was planning on selling it but I dont have any boxes so it's just collecting dust now. If you want it - take it."

.. So I did.

 

Let me tell you;
The R5 is in MINT condition, he won the parts in a competition (was a complete PC) and stripped it to upgrade his former rig. IT WAS NEVER USED. The plastic is still on the window!!! My plan for the longest time has been to build a PC for my girlfriend when she moves into her apartment (that happens to be today, July 14) and I have! I made it from parts I got second hand, and the CPU just so happens to be a G3258, perfectly fitting the MOBO until she upgrades.

 

Here's the list of her PC (Bold will be upgraded):
CPU: G3258, clocked at 4.7Ghz

CPU Cooler: Noctua NH D14

Mobo: Asus Z97 Pro Gamer

GPU: GTX 660 ti

PSU: Corsair VS 550w

SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250GB (OS)

HDD: 3TB WD Blue

Case: Fractal Design R5 Black Pearl Windowed

RAM: Corsair LPX 2x4GB Black (getting 2 more)

 

And man.. I'm just a happy lil' nerd right now.

Everything fired up fine, windows runs smooth as balls.

(Also miiight have bought her the Masterkeys Lite RGB Combo)

 

Thanks if you stuck with me throught the post!

What do you think of the build?

 

EDIT:
I want to clarify that Robin is THE MAN, he might be stubborn and boneheaded but man he is the nicest guy.
In case someone misunderstood

Some people just have disposable income for stuff like that.

Don't say no to opportunities like this :P

I really wanted to say yes directly, but I can't do that.

If I would've walked out with all that and NOT asked, potentially making him regret it, I wouldn't be able to sleep.

 

Supoer happy about it now though, no regrets :D

Right??? I feel like for everything to be second hand (but the drives, she bought those) it's pretty good!

And thanks!

You can get some great things second hand. My PC is a second hand pre-built, upgraded with some second hand ~8 year old parts. It does everything I need it to just fine, and I've only paid around $60 in total!

Super worth it.

 

One friend of mine was willing to buy everything second hand, told him that there's always a risk to it but he didn't mind.

So he got a 7850 with a 3570k for the price of $350.. Pretty dope

Can I borrow your friend?

Just need some spare ram and a GPU. Maybe a case too. Couple SSDs wouldn't hurt either

gief.

Best I can get for cheap is a crappy gt 710 and I'm not even allowed to spend anymore money on gear this year (the better half now wields my cards and all i get is a daily allowance for food and cab fare. Need to conserve funds if I want to buy myself an apartment and I've been on a bit of a spending spree this year)

RIGHT? I feel like CPU, GPU and PSU are the parts that actually will need an upgrade.

And considering she saved alot of cash now she can get better for the rest :D

Ye, the base platform is pretty solid haha.

 

My GF used to have my 2500k build, but she ended up inheriting my 6700k Skylake build because the mobo was going out and I went Ryzen for what to build myself.

 

These ladies of ours getting hella nice systems lol

And for media usage a Pentium will be fine.

Welp. Cheapest decent GPU went up from 50EUR to 80EUR. WTH

Well do you really need a GPU? I mean you could get a normal videocard and be done with it tbh?

Yeah I know, VS is not know to be good for heavier than home PC's.

I've come through to my GF though, she knows the deal about quality and why it's important. An upgrade is coming so fear not.

Will reset OC until then
