Yeah a great combo
Just check that the old user was using it with which cpu cooler as running on stock cooler and playing games hard would shorten the life of cpu as the temp reaches above 70c on stock cooler


Just check that has he overclocked it
If yes till what frequencies
This would help u to know that how intensely the cpu is used

I don't think so because the i5-2500k, even though it's 2 generations old, has the ability to overclock while the 3550 doesn't

If it works that's a great deal, regardless of age, the 2500Ks still have a few years in them and they OC great, I run mine at 4.8 24/7 with a Hyper 212 EVO and paired w/ 32GB of 2133 DRAM.....you could prob buy at that price turn around and make a good profit on it

How about the i5 3570k + z77 extreme 4 VS i5 2500k + z68 pro 3 gen 3?
which will win?

I've got the 3570K/EX4 at 4.7 and a 2500K/P67 (different mobo) at 4.8 the 3570K edges it out a little bit most everywhere
