Are you able to haggle down to 180?

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 - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Doubt it. He seems very firm about 200 Euro as a minimum.

Depending on the use case, you can build a superior system for less, a Ryzen 5 1600 and a good B450 board comes in at more affordable with 2 more cores, but if you want the 4790k for gaming performance then it is better. If he won't go lower, the price is good but not amazing.

Forgot to mention that I don't want to buy new. Besides, I got a lot of extra DDR3.

€200 is what the chip along usually goes for where I'm at, so a decent deal

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Then I say go for it, since you've got the ram lying around.

Ryzen 1600 or 2600 + ASROCK B450 Board is around the same Price.

Those are new and with Warranty.

 

But no, that's not a good price. For such old Hardware its really really expensive.

Guess you didn't read the part where I said I'm not interested in new parts + I got confirmation of working status of hardware + I have a lot of extra DDR3 laying around, and would have to buy DDR4 if I bought new.

So you'd pay more for used parts than for better, new parts?
You have to look at what you can get new and put that in relation to the used stuff...

 

Especially in recent years the used prices for some things have been totally insane.

For example 150€ or more for a normal Standard Board for a certain socket....

+ I got confirmation of working status

For now.

The Gigabyte X79-UD5 I got was also working. And worked when it arrived. But died on the same day.

And no warranty for that.

Was part of an LGA2011 bundle with an i7-3820. 

The CPU got replaced by Intel at the time but is rather worthless. IIRC around 100€ or so at the time.

+ I have a lot of extra DDR3 laying around, and would have to buy DDR4 if I bought new. 

Remember that the system I mentioned has 6 Cores with SMT. 
CPU, if you're lucky, can be purchased for 100€. Right now its 122€ (1600X would be one or two € more).

ASROCK B450 PRO4 is around 80€

 

But, as said, that's 6 Cores.

Somethinc closer to the one you bought, would be Ryzen 5/1400 for around 100€ (wich makes little sense as the 6 Core is not much more). The 1200 for 60€ doesn't come with SMT enabled, so is more comparable to Haswell i5, neither is 2200G or 1300X.

 

Yes DDR-4 might be a disadvantage. But the Prices are coming down. A Stick of DDR4-2666 is only 35€ right now. 

 

Remember that the Bundle is ~5 Years old and still cost the same as modern stuff.

It should be far far cheaper...
