Found something rarer than the I7 4720hq Linus uploaded

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

While doing my daily research on the internet for cheap pc components, i dedided to give a try to TaoBao ( the web that they used in the video ), I found something quite interesting, and surprisingly cheap.

 

(Look at the attached files).

 

This means that you can build a surprisingly cheap PC for gaming, just add a second handed gtx 970 or a 1060, buy a cheap 16gb ddr3 kit and you're almost good to go, asuming that everything does work.

 

Almost forgot, if you want to buy this, grab the most expensive option, that's an I7 4980hq (if they do have it in stock).

Well maybe is not in countries other than the one i reside, it's strange for me having to pay extra for a shipment from china ( not even taxes of any sort, but i suppose that could vary from seller to seller), maybe i was lucky with all the other products i bought from china.

also, you rarely have warranty on second hand products, i know, on ebay, for example, you have buyer protection when paying via paypal, but what if you bought it on person.

Linus mentioned the extra charges, the shipping at the door, the customs. Just buy a used i7 +mobo locally and you'll still save money

Yeaj, i know that, it's just that in theory, its a good deal, asuming that they won't charge anything extra.

if they didn't charge anything extra i would by everything tech from the US (i'm from Europe) ?. You must be really careful with the extra charges.

Its a bad deal unless you already have both the motherboard and RAM and even then just getting an used i7 4770/4790/4770k/4790k would make more sense most of the time.

Ryzen beats this in value easily if you have to buy the rest of HW as well and you will get a warranty and you are not investing into an 4-5year old platform.

I'm from Europe too, and at least in Spain they never charged me anything extra, but it could be just luck.

 

Also i never bought from this website, so i don't know anything ?

pretty sure you would have to pay customs on this on Spain, it's EU regulations. In my country at least the VAT i would have to pay them.

i would never buy something like this, cause I want my new PC to be 100% new ( something hard in Spain, gpu and ram prices are still sky high ), so i'm still rocking the worst gaming pc you'll ever see ?, and no, it's not old, it's just ... stupid, my system has an intel Xeon e5-2665 v1 (socket 2011), 16GB of RDIMM ECC DDR3 (at just 1333mhz) a propietary motherboard ( from an HP z420 ) and a HD 7870 Ghz edition from gigabyte all of this inside of a NOX hummer MC case ( it does have RGB lightning, but my motherboard does not have a controller, so i have the CPU fan at a fixed color right now, and yes, the case has a dent, i realized it once i had everything inside ).

 

That CPU was not cheap when it released ( i bought it for 60€ ), but this thing is so bad for gaming, and only 2.7ghz max turbo frequency.

I know someone who tested the 4980hq, very interesting chip although the level of support on the board he used is very minimal. Was glitchy and generally unstable half the time. Trying to get him to send it to me so I can test it on a z97 board with a broadwell bios as I suspect the l4 may have something to do with it. Would be nice to have multiplier control of the l4 unlike on his z87 board.
