Trying to find a good place for cheap cpus

I've been looking for a while for a cheap FX 8350. I'd love to swap to ryzen but cash constraints. Anyone know a good place that sells hardware( new or used) at a good price?. TIA

Can you check EBAY? (not sure your country) that's where I would start.  And I game on an FX 8350 (sig) and a Ryzen - Ryzen obviously better but I still play AAA titles maxed out with my rig (most games - and if not maxed...plenty good enough for all the crap people throw FX 8350 way LOL)

Local Facebook groups, like Buy/Swap/Sell PC Parts. In Australia, there are about 6 groups I'm apart of.

Shop locally. I'm in a small town in the middle of nowhere in Florida, and FX-8350 systems come up for sale every now and then. You'll have a hard time finding loose 8350s unless you're in a fairly big city, but I can usually talk my way into a pretty good deal on the whole system and sell the rest of it, ending up with a very good price on an 8350.

 

Alternatively, you can troll eBay late on weeknights (especially Friday) and look for auctions that are about to end. The number of people on eBay tends to be lower on Friday nights than any other time, and if an 8350 is ending its auction right around then, you can probably snipe a good deal at the last second.

Sincerely,

 

me
