Description

Just built this one last week, and its for sale!!! =)

Here is a link to my ebay listing: http://tinyurl.com/kbtvs3e

Parts list isn't exact but this baby sure is powerful.

Still putting some finishing toutches on as far as cable management and stuff.

I put my heart into this computer and it will be painful to sell it, but I'll just have to put even more love into the next one

Let me know what you guys think, or if you want to buy it!

Edit* I've noticed some criticism towards the Buy it now price on the ebay listing. Please keep in mind that there is also a running bid price and the reserve is SIGNIFICANTLY lower than the buy it now =)

Please try to keep feedback constructive, thanks everyone else for your positive feedback so far!!

Also, I apologize for the horrid picture quality, I had to borrow the camera and it was the best I could do at the time. I'm working on getting better pictures, will post when available.

no one is going to buy that pc for that much money. its very nice don't get me wrong, but today's economy everyone is tight on their wallet. i can't even build a 1.5k pc anymore because money is tight.

3200 bucks, really? The worst part is you will probably get it to, someone will stumble across it on ebay and not know what they are doing and will buy it for that price.

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 0 points 16 months ago

Yes really =) It has a bid price as well, the buy it now is really just in-case someone wants it right away.

Awesome build. Great part choices.

However, at 3.2k, I would probably have expected a 512GB SSD Array (2x256GB), RoG Impact and a 780 classified. Other than the price, this is a really solid build

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 0 points 16 months ago

Good suggestions =) I have been considering adding another 250gbSSD and the 780 was out of my budget at the time of the build, especially with a waterblock

 
 
XIscottyIX [3 Builds] 3 points 16 months ago

+2 for the awesome build -1 for the photography maybe you can use some of your 3.2k to buy a new camera!!! :)

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

I know I don't even had a camera, I had to borrow that one.

wow.

i want to buy it but....

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

I know D: Had to save up quite a bit of money before taking on this build.

kind of hard to beleive that that gpu can outperform a 780, you forget the 780 can be overclocked too

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 0 points 16 months ago

Yes, I should have specified that it out performs certain 780s while they are at stock settings. People started bidding before I could change any of the mistakes I noticed though lol, ebay won't let me edit it now.

Your disclaimer is almost illegible because the font is so small.

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 0 points 16 months ago

Holding alt + mouse wheel will let you change font size if its too small.

 
 
sketch24 [6 Builds] 4 points 16 months ago

That's not the point. I know you can do that, but it doesn't look like your taking into account browser and resolution compatibility in your listing, or it almost looks like your making the font that small to be disingenuous.

Awesome Mini build.

Cheers on the great work

 
 
sketch24 [6 Builds] 1 point 16 months ago

I hope you turn a profit, but it looks like you're gouging on the shipping costs. On ebay, most people expect you to eat some of the shipping costs no matter how heavy the object is. Maybe you'll get lucky and some sucker who doesn't know better will use buy it now, but usually for these premium builds, people will add up the price of the parts and see it is way less than $3200. They count the hard work you put into building and overclocking it as worth absolutely nothing. Good luck.

 
 
fsma92 [2 Builds] 1 point 16 months ago

So you wanna make 1500-1700 profit? is this a joke?

 
 
Djhidden5 [1 Build] 2 points 16 months ago

a watercooling setup like that isn't cheap. Probably cost $500 or more

 
 
fsma92 [2 Builds] 2 points 16 months ago

not worth that's 500$ ok what about the extra 1000$ ~? lol this is ridiculous

 
 
Djhidden5 [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

i agree with you on that

[comment deleted]
 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

Yes, as I said in the description the parts list is not complete. I spent a lot of money on the water cooling system, waterblocks, pumps and reservoirs are not cheap and fittings are only like 8 bucks when when you need 8 or more of them it adds up quickly.

 
 
fsma92 [2 Builds] 1 point 16 months ago

doubt somebody is gonna buy that, it doesn't improve performance in any way, you can get a h100i for 120$ for the same performance this kind of build is more for an enthusiast and most of the time enthusiasts will build the PC themselves, imo you should sell it for what you paid and cut your loses.

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

Thanks for your opinion =)

 
 
fsma92 [2 Builds] 1 point 16 months ago

dont take it to offence but like i said most people with that kind of budget will most likely build it themselves :/ most of this is the thrill of building the pc :/

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

Rest assured, no offence is taken

 
 
fsma92 [2 Builds] 1 point 16 months ago

alrighty

 
 
Yochewy 1 point 16 months ago

It's a good build but 3.2k????? uhhh.... goodluck.

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

Thanks, yes and thanks =)

 
 
Firecrackers [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

Guys, he's just doing what any other Gaming PC Company does. Makes a computer and sells it for more! :P nice build though.

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 0 points 16 months ago

Yes exactly! We all know there are people out there willing to spend this kind of money on alienware, I might as well sell them something more dependable and cooler looking. Thankyou

 
 
DoHbOyBlAzEd [14 Builds] 1 point 16 months ago

At $3200, you might as well tell people to go buy an overpriced Alienware.

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

Can't think of a single reason why recommending alienware of this computer is a good idea. Keep in mind there is a bid price too, the buy it now price is really just there because that is what similar computers on ebay are selling for.

 
 
GMC_TheLegend [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

Really nice build! I DO think that the buy price should be a little cheaper but the bidding makes up for that, I commend you, good sir on all of your hard work!

 
 
CanadianPilgrim [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

Please post the rationale for the components you chose. I am chronicling a build in-progress (stalled because the wrong SSD was shipped to me!), and I plan to post the reasons for selecting each of the components, with quotes from articles read (because I can't hold myself out as an expert).

 
 
PickItApart 0 points 16 months ago

Beautifully done. Great components but the pictures ruin it for me. Clearly you know how to build a case, now learn to make it shine...clearly.

 
 
Wario567 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

I know, the picture quality is terrible. I'm working on finding a better camera to retake the pictures.

the Bitfenix Prodigy isn't very mini. Its a M-ATX case.

 
 
deathsoap 2 points 16 months ago

it's a mini itx.

 
 
JoeOC [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

It's as big as some M-ATX cases.

 
 
BevanGachett -1 points 16 months ago

Its not mini itx, They just call it a mini itx case Hes proof. http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/products/chassis/prodigy-m/

 
 
deathsoap 2 points 16 months ago

that the prodigy m and it's not even out yet. that case is a prodigy case. 2 different case.

 
 
BevanGachett 0 points 16 months ago

No its not. They just changed the inside layout. Its the same size as the one that's out now. People like me always said that it was too big for mini itx and Bitfenix has proven it by making it MATX without changing the size.
