Description

I really like putting together used-parts builds around an especially good deal I find on some part or other. This time, it was a motherboard and RAM combo going cheap. I got it, then set out to get the rest of a system. The case was bought brand new, but everything else was bargain-hunted down in the wilds of the internet.

I'm posting some photos here, and for the rest please see this album.

Overall, a good system I think. A few things of note:

The case is terrible as it comes but fixable with some effort (for full details of that saga read the write-up in the linked album). The CPU overclocked to 4.7GHz at 1.35V with temps acceptable under the budget cooler. My testing in PUBG using FRAPS showed the system giving ~80fps on average at 1080p Ultra. (That is the game of the moment right now, so I figured some folks might be interested in that stat!)

costs? If used parts/Deals I'd be interested to know your prices paid

Hi, sure, I will dig out the details from my embarrassingly messy spreadsheet of parts, builds and prices :-)

Thanks. You do awesome builds by the way. Very sensible :)

Hi again, sorry to be so slow. Prices paid for parts: GPU $530, CPU $360, cooler $50, mobo $50, RAM $30, SSD $50, HDD $20, PSU $120 (new), case $50 (new)... Some alright deals here. Would have like to find a better-priced graphics card but mining was inflating new and used prices.

Hey, thanks for your interest, and yes, all parts but the case here were used. This one was sold a while ago, but if you're looking to buy in April then please do let me know. If you're in Australia I could do something for you, and if not, I'm always happy to talk parts and plans :-)

Hi, yes, and Intel's 9th-gen Ice Lake processors are already being teased. Exciting. Also, I see from your profile that you've broadcast this news in several places, so I'll just assume there's no point specific to my build that you're making ;-)

This guy has been causing trouble around here lately, I saw him on another post trolling and his accounts have been banned.
