Ok, so I'm building a gaming computer and i was gonna get all the parts off of Newegg. The total of the parts is slightly over $8500. I was telling my friend about my dilemma of getting money and they told me that they get their parts used and the parts are really cheap. since I don't want to spend eight and a half grand on parts, I decided to get the parts used like my friend does. I looked on Amazon a little and I was wondering if there is any other website that I can go to get the parts i need, used and for very cheap. Thanks!

If your parts list for a gaming computer costs 8500 you have done something very very wrong/gone for bragging rights that actually make you look foolish.

At that price, it sounds to me as though you're building a monster server. Dual Xeon 8 core CPU's, quad SLI 690's, I think I'm still coming up short of your budget - maybe not but, that is not a gaming computer - that's just sick (IMO) - (I'm jealous I guess)
I'd try Ebay but I haven't seen to many great bargins there lately - Craig's List perhaps?

lol :)  thing with building like that is (you can't SLi 4 690's) for 8500 it will game the same as some guy that spent 2000..... difference being the guy that spent 2k will rebuild in 2 years or less and remain cutting edge.

I hope that 8500 is not in US dollars. If it is, I have some ocean front property in Arizona for sale, you interested?

Problem I see here is,
if stuff is cheap and brand new kit, its most likely stolen, a ripoff or broken,
and any genuine gear for sale cheap isn't going to be cutting edge kit, how many 690's are on ebay 'used' right now?
lower your budget, be it Dollars or Pounds and build according to what you can afford, or you are lining up for misery down the road man
