Bought a build from craigslist

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I saw a build today on craigslist.

$500 for:

Asus 24" monitor (VW246)
CM storm scout case
asrock z77 extreme 4 mobo
3570k processor
8 gigs kingston ram
asus 7850 2gb video card
wd black 1 tb hard drive
crucical m4 128 gb ssd
asus dvd/rw
cm hyper evo 212 cpu cooler
corsair 600 power supply (CX600)
random usb wifi adapter
windows 7 oem

So, I took a chance and bought it. The Asus monitor is brand new, and everything else seem new. Monitor was ordered from newegg and some of the other parts have microcenter stickers on them.

It posts, and I'm formatting the discs and installing windows now.

What do you guys think? The price was way too low as the parts come out to over $1000 on newegg.

If it posts and plays games, good job buds!
Now just change out that air cooler for something better, maybe upgrade gpu (not nessesary at all) and you got yourself a fantastic build.


*EDIT*
I took the time to put the parts together in PC parts picker, its probably worth more as I dont know which corsair 600w it is and how fast of ram it is or which asus monitor it is, but still

Cheapest you can possibly get that stuff about $1300

Seems stupid cheap for the components that are in the rig. If it works tho, it works. Good deal thumb.gif

Wow, wonder if there were problems with it and the person just kind of gave up. Even if something is going out the door and about to break replacements would still keep you well within a great deal.


I couldn't really think of a reason someone would sell it for that cheap without some problems. Could have just been a virus lol... You never know.


Great deal either way though, lucky.

It was probably stolen, but hey you didn't steal it so I guess you are not morally culpable.

After a bit of tinkering with the lan driver, I've connected to the internet and am installing all drivers. Seems to work just fine!!! Good deal :-) I do hope it's not stolen, I dug around a little for any notices online of stolen PCs in my area and haven't found any.

Now the big question is, should I hang on to this asrock extreme4 mobo or keep my msi g-45a?

Also, what is a good price to throw this puppy back on craigslist for?

I'll probably hang on to the asus monitor.
