Where can i find cheap gaming computer parts?

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!

  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. well besides amazon is there anywhere where i can get computer parts for really, really cheap? like as cheap as possible
  5. you should check out craigslist, ebay
    or
    garage sales :lol:
  6. Hi :)

    Troll ???

    More info needed ??

    All the best Brett :)
  7. I hope that 8500 is not in US dollars. If it is, I have some ocean front property in Arizona for sale, you interested?
  8. @Brett928S2 what other info do you need?
  9. what are you planning for $8500????

    Hi :)

    Budget and WHICH currency ??

    All the best Brett :)
  11. 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
    Moto
  12. i would like to see the Specification that you are thinking to buy for 8500 $$$$$
  13. even alienware computers top of the line cost 4-5 grands max
  14. I don't know if you'll be able to find the exact parts, but I just scroll through Craigslist "computer-parts" section with an open mind. That's what most computer gamers do. Anyone who can afford an $8500 computer has to have a full time job with no spouse, or kids. I'm rocking an HP Pavillion case/mobo ($20), with 8gb mix and matched ram ($30ish), Nvida card (traded for a 32" tv), AMD Athlon II X4 561k ($45), Arctic freezer 7 pro rev 2 ($20) a 60gb SSD (from an old inspiron laptop), 1tb hard drive (recycled from a computer I can't even remember), Ultra LSP ATX 550w PSU ($30) Some thermal paste ($5). Valuing my old TV at $100, I spent about $250, and it does as much as I need it to. It might to be shinny and new like some of the stuff you see online, but it will definitely play all the games I want. If I had a couple hundred dollars I could throw at it, I'd have a new case, motherboard, CPU, and a larger SSD, but I'm just not rich like that. Hope this helps :)
  15. Has anyone stopped to consider it might be $850? lol
