Where to buy used PC parts besides craigslist?

So I'm travelling to the Philippines for the holidays and want to build a small form factor PC, one of those mini ITX builds if you will.

 

im trying to keep it really cheap, scrap yard wars style, but unfortunately i live in a small town, not many PC parts on craigslist unless I drive down to LA, which would cost me about $40 on gas alone. So I was wondering if any of you know any other good website that sells used PC parts.

 

Here's the PCpartPicker link --> http://pcpartpicker.com/user/johnjoseph/saved/cpHypg

 

i feel like i'm still spending more than I want to on that list, and it's definitely open to suggestions.

 

I will mostly be gaming on a 720p monitor, mostly just dota 2, so a GPU similar to the 650 Ti should be sufficient.

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

eBay. You gotta look out for warranty coverage left and make sure it's functioning 100% though.

If you live in a small town then the chances of other people having any decent parts for sale will be much lower. You might be able to visit some local businesses/schools to see if they are getting rid of any computers and salvage what you can from there. You might be able to find something at an op shop, I think might be called thrift stops or something similar in America.

 

If you can't find anything locally then eBay will probably be your only hope if you want used parts.
