    Default Quick opinion on used computer setup

    Looking for a home workstation and I came across this online. He’s willing to do 1100 for everything including the older sapphire GPU. Good deal? Would you?

    Thanks guys

    5820k was released in 2014 ... 1100$ for a 7 year old PC is a joke even with the current market.

    Edit: 5 min build on MemEx with 0 effort for this but this is already better than that old shit. (To be clear you can build something cheaper/better than below, this is just a rough throw it together and it comes out to 1k with all newer hardware. Only diff is no extra HDD and no disc drive (does anyone even use discs anymore?) Win10 key is 50$ online.

    Memex if you really want someone to do it for you, but there's a plethora of build guides out there for you to follow so you really should just DIY.
    Memex mounts the CPU/ram for you last time I checked for free if you buy the motherboard, cpu and ram from them.

    memex for quick builds (decent) but if you want something really custom, send me a PM - I build on average, about 6 of these a year.

    It's not complicated to do it yourself.

    I struggled a little bit on my first build but now it's essentially lego. Everything fits very well and is fairly intuitive. Often the software is harder than the hardware lol.
