Picked up this i5-3570k for $140 along with other things like a i5-6400, gtx 750ti, 8gb ddr4, 400w psu, 1tb hdd, I definitely got it for less than $30 but I just thought I’d throw that in there for $30.
Since I didn’t have a motherboard for this cpu, I found someone selling this motherboard with a pentium g645 for $75, I bargained for $50 but we agreed at $60 so I picked it up, thinking I can get $10 for the pentium, I valued the motherboard at $50. I had to update the bios on this motherboard to support the 3570k so having the pentium was a life saver.
Ram is a single 8gb stick I ripped out of a system I bought on Craigslist awhile back, pretty much got it for free since I sold the system for more than I bought it for despite ripping most of the good parts haha.
Picked up the hard drive last week along with 3 others, 4 in total for $40
I bought a rx560 a couple weeks ago for $70, my brother in law wanted to get rid of his sli gtx 460s so I decided to trade him, didn’t care if I was losing out, I was just trying to help him out, still pretty ok cards on sli
Case was bought last week for $33 or something but there’s a rebate that’ll make it $12.99, I can’t recall the exact deal but yeah
Power supply was bought a couple weeks ago when there was a promo that dropped it from $69.99 to $29.99, I wish I had bought more.
Only thing left to do now is to get a better cpu cooler for some overclocks
