Description

Sold for $1200.

This is the most expensive/powerful PC I've built and I think it turned out great! The roots of the build started with me picking up an Asus Turbo GTX 1080 Ti on craigslist for $200. After that I found an AMD Ryzen 7 2700x (cpu only) on OfferUp shipping for $185. Like magic, in the next few days I found a perfect deal on Newegg of a Rosewill PRISM S-BLACK ATX Case w/ a free bundled Rosewill ARC 650W PSU. The case is beautiful with full tempered glass, PSU shroud, included RGB fans, and a free PSU; the purchase was a no-brainer! Found a local OfferUp deal on 16GB of Corsair Vengeance 3000MHz for only $40. I quickly picked up the Intel 660p 1TB for $65 before it was out of stock. All I needed now was just a motherboard and an AIO, I waited patiently for Newegg deals and found the Corsair H100x + ASRock X470 Master SLI/AC.

I loved building in the case with all the parts, I'm glad I went with a black theme as to not interfere with the RGB fans. The Rosewill PRISM S-BLACK even has a bracket that holds your GPU upright to prevent sag! I'm interested to see how much I can sell this flip for :)

No idea. Backstory is a posting on Craigslist showing the GPU it's serial number sticker everything checked out but I couldn't buy it had to go to work. 12 hours later and the post is still up and I pick it up, seller tells me nobody else contacted him but me, and he upgraded to the 2080ti for overwatch.

Congrats on the buy. I doubt I will be able to find a deal like that. Plan on buying a B-stock RTX 2070 $400

Ehhh, I wouldn't hold hype for long (craiglist isn't considered safer than eBay to begin with) as the warranty is probably expired and did he told you whether GPU was heavily mined or not (replacing fan on blower is a more hassle than regular AIB design)? When such tier GPUs are priced between 400-600$ it's kind of okay as minor damage is always expected, but with 200$ in price tag sounds fishy...

It came out of a pre-built system, it had a white backplate permanently 'taped' to the GPU that I proceeded to snap off at home.

How was stress testing?

No problems, no artifacts. Opened the card up and it had no weird smells, showed small signs of use. Cleaned it up applied new thermal paste and it topped out at 83F on a stress test. Was able to take a +160 core overclock. Nothing out of the ordinary
