I m considering purchase of a used computer on craiglist. My budget is low, and my needs are high...so thats that - but ofcourse i gotta be careful about it.
I have some conditions the seller has agreed to. He's willing to do a clean install for me with a legit copy of windows7 home premium and hand me the key. He's also willing to let me test the machine (i told him this would take about 2 hours and hes cool with it).
I want some opinions on testing this machine. I was just gonna install a game quickly/ see it in action. Run pc/3dmark on it, and run prime for a few minutes, while i gave it a complete visual inspection. Then I plan to run memtest. Device manager has to register everything fine too.
Can you guys suggest any other tests i may run to ensure that its in good shape?
Here's what i m buying
i7 2600k processor
Asrock z68 extreme3 gen 3 mobo
16gb ddr3 1600 ram gskill ripjaws 4x4
1 ssd crucial 64gig, 1 hdd 500 gig 32mb cache 5200rpm from WD
corsair 750 PSU (one with teh 80+ rating)
2 x radeon 6950 (reference cards unlocked) 2gb each in crossfire
a Corsair liquid colling unit on the CPU (h80 i think)
Rosewill gamer case (blackhawk extreme is what its called i believe)
dvd writer drive
I intend to clone the primary drive, or just wipe it clean and do a clean install on a 240gig vertex3 i purchased. the Crucial will become a photoshop scratch drive- i m not too worried about its lifetime.
I'll be testing on the seller's monitor.
