Description

I bought about 5 of these excelvan or whatever 750w power supplies off amazon for $12.99 each as I often build and resell so I decided to throw one in here.

Bought the motherboard refurbished from Newegg when it was on sale for $19.99 then decided to buy the pentium along with the Case off eBay when there was a site wide 15% off coupon.

The graphics card was picked up from a Craigslist seller, it’s an old card but still very capable I’d say.

Ram was ripped out of a prebuilt system I had bought previously with 32gb ram, basically ripped out x3 8gb leaving x1 8gb left in it and resold the system making more than what I paid so I basically got all the things I ripped out free.

Hard drive was ripped out of a build I had bought on Craigslist and replaced for a 500gb hard drive and resold for more than I bought it for so pretty much got the hard drive for free aswell.

One man's trash is another's resealable trash.

Really good build for the price tag, though.
