Just scored a good deal on eBay

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I was looking for a PC under $50 just to do basic things. Figured a Core 2 Duo would be good enough for all I wanted to do, so I was about to pick up an HP Compaq 8000 Elite (e8400, 2gb of DDR3, 250gb hard drive) then I stumbled across this!



$46! And yeah it's free shipping and yes it's a reputable seller.

Opinions?

nice! If it supports an i7, you could get a i7 920 for pretty cheap these days. That and an SSD and you are going to have a solid rig for cheap. thumb.gif

There is a reason someone is selling that so cheap, it's such a trash it's cheaper to sell it than to recycle it lachen.gif

It's actually LGA-1156, so it's range of compatibility is kind of narrow (doesn't include the i7-920). I've never truly felt the speed of an SSD myself, so I might buy one later on as well.

I hope not lol. Still better than what I was originally going for though.

to the consumer choices?...

1156 also had xeon counterparts.

I mentioned that I would most likely upgrade to a Xeon in the OP. Unless I can get my hands on a cheaper CPU and mobo, since 1156 quad-core Xeons typically go for more than $50.

Can't go wrong for $45!

Wow! When you look up the same CPU on Google Shopping the prices are way higher. I guess I should have checked eBay first.
