Good for $265

ImmanuelG
Go to solution Solved by Birblover12,

For that price heck yeah, be prepared to learn about water cooling maintenance though. Having 2x 980 Tis also doesn't do as much as you might think it does, but I must admit it looks cool as heck though. The GTX 980 Ti is roughly about an RTX 3050 in todays performance, minus all the fancy DLSS/RTX features.聽

I'd buy it anyways since if you ever upgrade in the future you can use that PC as a TV game console, baller media server, video game server, whatever you see fit lol. If you do end up buying it, probably replace the thermal paste since those parts are quite old and no idea when the last time it's been repasted聽馃槅

Found this pc for 265. Is it good for the price? The specs are:

Corsair Obsidian 800D tower, Intel core i7 6700k processor, evga 1200p2 1200 watt PSU, 2 EVGA 980Ti GPUs, MSI Z170A motherboard. 32GB DDR4 RAM.

Even though the system is pretty old, for $265 that's a great deal, you definitely aren't buying a new pc with performance anywhere close

It's an 8 year old CPU and GPU.聽聽

They're good parts, but you do need to temper your expectations.聽聽
That CPU will be a limiter in a lot of games, due to a low IPC compared to more modern CPUs.
Also, the GPU will probably be slower than a 3050 is today.聽聽

But for 265?聽 That ain't a bad price, especially with the watercooling.聽聽

Very good for the price !

The 980Ti is comparable to a 1660 or 3050

The 6700K is slow by today's standard but still quite usable

Keep in mind that I am sometimes wrong, so please correct me if you believe this is the case!
