Picked up $88 pc at second chance pc store

Went window shopping with a friend today at the 'Second Chance PC parts' I saw a really odd modded case with a system in it for $88 came with a MSI branded red steel series mouse and keyboard. Wrapped up in plastic wrap

When I took it back to office to check it out, I was surprised what it was in it. 

 

Steelseries M400 machanical keyboard - (red and black with MSI logo red led) 

Steelserries rival 100 mouse - (red and black MSI logo red led) 

Coolermaster N200 with window

Intel i5 4460

Gigabyte Z97mx gaming 5

Kingston hyper X Fury 1600mhz 32gb X 4 sticks

MSI  GTX 970 4gb gaming

Seasonic Focus FM650W - dead

Western digital black 2tb hdd

Other the the dead psu everything worked fine

I changed out the HDD for a 500gb ssd

I think I can resale the system or use it for a second gaming pc? 

What do you guys think I should do?

That's actually a really decent deal. Good find. If you're not interested in keeping it you could easily flip it for around $400-$500 once you replace the PSU and get it working.

CPU is rather underpowered for rest of the system. If you can get decent priced 4790k and cooling, that's very capable gaming machine.

I mean, I think that's a bit of an understatement. I just paid about that for an SSD, and this dude just got a mouse, keyboard, case, an i5, z97 motherboard, 4 sticks of ram, a 970, AND an HDD.

 

The i5 alone would go for $150, at least, nevermind the rest of it.

Don't forget the dead psu for scrap metal, I don't think anyone would pay $150 for a 4460 since a Ryzen 2600 is $160. lol
