Morning all,

Name is Aj, and I am looking for some feedback here. Quick overview; I am looking to build a system for around $800, but its not a solid figure if I can score this combo. Am interested in core i5 processor, but just recently found a guy located close to me on craigslist that is selling a i7 940 CPU for $350, and says that if one purchases the Asus P6T deluxe mobo he will discount the price ($450 for the bundle). My question is whether or not I should plop down the extra cash for this combo because pricing out the components ill be at around 1000$, price wise its a no-brainer. Anything I should know concerning a set up like this? Thanks for response.

The Craiglist bundle is a great price... My concern is WHY are they selling everything for roughly 1/2 price?? Have they abused the system with high overclocks?? Are they defective?? Or... Are they selling it because one lost a job and needs the cash? Have they updated to a new build and just want to see their old system to help pay for it?

I recommmend finding answers to these types of questions before you jump into buying a great soundind deal!!!

Let's see, a used C0 940 (940's never got the D0 revision) for 80 (150 if you shop at microcenter!) bucks more than a new D0 920 which will out overclock it...

If this was half the price he's currently asking and had a reputation for selling quality used parts maybe. Otherwise I'd avoid this deal like the plague.
