There's no way in hell you're getting a GTX1080 and 64GB of RAM for 700 unless this is an X58 board with an i7 920 or whatever, and ECC RAM which it wouldn't even support.

Hmmmm. I'm with the rest, you need to find out what kind of i7 it is. Also, when you pick it up make sure everything works, verify it has the right amount of RAM, etc.

I'm assuming you're converting the pricing from a foreign one to US currency? Doesn't make much sense. Parts where you are are likely more expensive. Always quote pricing in the price it's actually listed in.

Eh, it's not out of the realm of possibilities. I bought a PC with a Ryzen 1500x, 2 GTX 980's, 1TB 850 EVO, 16GB RAM, 28" Samsung 4k monitor, Corsair mouse and K70 RGB keyboard, plus a DX Racer chair and desk for $1,400 Canadian last year.

 

Frankly, even if it's a 4th gen i7, it's still a decent deal.

7700? You should really do proper research and find out what exact parts it has instead of saying "or something like that."

 

If you don't care enough to find out proper specifics, why should we care enough to offer advice?

No its not.  That ram is worthless because its probably 1333 or 1033.  You wont want to hame with it.  That cpu is worse than a $129 r5 1600, and its old and used, not to mention theres no guarantee its unlocked.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".

You really shouldn't assume when you quite simply don't know.

If it's a 7700, it's not worse than an R5 1600.

Its not.  He has 64gb of ram and hes selling it for 700.  There is 0 chance that it is DDR4.  Therefore, its 4th gen at best.o

 

EDIT:  Also, look at the case and peripherals.  Straight out of 2012.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed.

Seriously, when new parts are as rock bottom cheap as they are right no, there is no reason to buy used.  That 700 will get you a pretty sick system in the current market if you buy cpu+mobo at microcenter and everything else on newegg.

People sell stuff cheap sometimes. He's in a small town, so there's also probably less interest. Meaning, if he really wants to get rid of it, he'll take a significant hit. Since it's near the end of the month, he could be short on rent. I've often seen killer systems go cheap near months end, especially in the slower construction seasons.

Granted, it could be 4th gen. If it is, then sell off the 64GB of RAM, buy 16GB of faster stuff, and you're still doing pretty well.

 

I got a pretty killer system for $1,400 Canadian. $1,000 (equivalent) for this isn't that far fetched.

 

It's not like he's buying it online. He can check it out in person to verify everything.

Pc components are an exception.  They are a commodity.  Its not like a bike or a table.  They are liquid enough, and small enough that ebay will give you close to fair value when selling.  Also, 64 gb of ram reeks of 2010-2014.  People dont make that kind of stupid mistake anymore, but it was common unknowledge back then to think more ram=FASTARRR!!!.

Some people don't want to bother with shipping an item like a PC, or parting it out. Loads of people have absolutely no desire to deal with eBay.

My roommmate has 32GB of RAM in his system and all he does is game. So. Yes, people still build overkill rigs.

@Corbinsmi You really need to get a full spec sheet and all of the information on this computer. He might be trying to hustle you because he seems real lax in getting you details on this major purchase.

 

On the other side, you could just build one yourself for a budget of 2500 USD...

 

Also, don't trust someone who tries to market their rig as having an "MSI military grade motherboard" lul

Could also mean that is stolen and he wants to sell it fast, he has no way to login and check the specs.

That MSI logo is surely somewhere on the board and the Ram if all slots are filled it's a guess.

 

But this is a very negative way of looking at this, the old keyboard and mouse he had still lying around some where.
