I am currently using the system I built in 2015 (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/8xr6Mp) and have suddenly got the urge to upgrade my current system/build a new system.
My friend is in the process of building a new system and, as the title states, has offered me his used i7-8700K and GTX 1080 for the combined price of £260.
I am asking whether you think it is wise to go ahead and purchase them from him? I am aware that the CPU is now nearly 2.5 years old and the GPU is over 3.5 years old, but I still think that for that price, these parts are worth the money, providing they work as expected?
I am aware that I will need to purchase a new MOBO to support the CPU.
Any advice you can give is much appreciated :)
