Hi, guys, so I've been looking for a computer that is below 1100$, issue with cyberpower & ibuypower is Shipping costing 300 Dollars! If New Egg had good pre-builds, I would buy automatically, since their shipping is around 30$.[Im in Canada] Issue with New Egg is most good ones are out of stock and do not include wireless cards.
So I turned to Kijiji [Local classifieds run by Ebay] and found this for 970$
Computer for sale
Case: "Full tower" with 3 fans included - (Value ~ 75$)
CPU: Intel i5 3570-k (3.8 Ghz) - (Value ~ 250$)
CPU Fan: Thermaltake - (Value ~ 50$)
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX (USB 3.0 + Sata 3) - (Value ~ 150$)
Power supply (PSU): Ultra LP series 650W - (Value ~ 100$)
According to himself, in quotes
"There's about 6 months left of warranty on CPU, Motherboard, GPU and memory, for the other parts no. But I built it myself and it's a very reliable and well maintained rig.
And if you add up all the parts value, it comes up to about 1930$ (to give people a rough idea of the total value and money spent on it)"
The value is more like is more like $1500 I would say. Those figure you showed are really high. It's a good pc, but you might be able to get a new pc with all of those components for only $100 more. I am not much into used parts anymore. I used some used PC components for my first build, which was made earlier this year. The only original components are now the psu(bought new), ram (bought new), and Hard drive from my previous computer.
Thanks, From the picture, on the Kijiji link, does everything seem fine and intact
If you have PC suggestions
I am looking for a
I5-3570K, 8GB Ram, GTX660 Or Raedon 7870, W7 OR 8 Does not matter, Just not w7 Home premium, 1TB HDD, WIFI card is an essential
I can find them for 1000$ but shipping! If you find it on a Canadian company that is legit! I would appreciate it
Well, I was talking about doing it yourself. I know that it sounds scary at first, but it's not that bad. Use newegg's tutorial on YouTube. You already have every part that you want selected, so the hard part is already done. I don't get why you are against W7 home premium. I used to have windows 7 ultimate, and with my new build I "downgraded" to premium. I have literally noticed no difference. You can get a good wifi card for $10. If building your own sounds like something you would consider, I would be glad to help. Building your own will almost always be better. My computer is about $950 new, but many websites would sell the same thing for $1100.
building isnt something I would do
Pre-built from Newegg, the amazing ones are out of stock.
Where do you suggest I should buy a monitor if I dont buy from the person on Kijiji.
I need it cheap[under 120$] 20-22 inch. LCD
***What should I get motherboard.. etc..
Im taking the I5-3570K
What is a good fair priced motherboard
Power supply around 500w, Ill take Corsair
Raedon 7870 2GB, Whats the big difference between sapphire, MSI, XFX.. etc
Good cooling system [not using stock, plan to OC around 4ghz-4.2ghz [Flight Sim X Processor eater -_- ] I heard the hyper 212 was good
The pictures aren't all that helpful. About the psu, it's not that it is to weak. The other guy doesn't like it because it isn't a well known brand. It's more about how questionable the reliability is. That monitor looks pretty good. Since the transaction is through ebay, aren't you under ebay buyer protection if something doesn't work?
The system is a bit overpriced i believe it is more 900 dollars with the screen. the psu used is an ultra lsp series 650W that is right on edge you might need a bit more juice. the ultra psu's have good reviews on tigerdirect. the problem is why dont you buy components and build it yourself , buying used computers like these can en up being a nightmare as you have no idea what might happen to it in a month period or so. get the parts build it your self it is not hard at all. unless you find a good deal that is to good to be true.
Newegg.CA , canadian newegg they have ibuypower and cyberpower computers. also if you don't mind Openbox or refurbished (with 30 days money back guarantee) computers they have them from time to time and you can get good deals that way, and the shipping is free.
i got this computer from newegg USA for 600 dollars ( i will comment on how good cyberpower is when i receive it Monday)
