My target was a decent reliable gaming PC for under a grand with this build. If anyone is interested please PM me an offer. I can send pics and your welcome to come and see it.

Reason for sale: I was planning to get back into some gaming after being away a while, but I haven’t been using it and I want to spend some more money on Motorbike stuff !!

EDIT: Forgot to mention it has an activated version of Windows 7 installed, but I won’t be able to give you a certificate / license key for it.


Any idea how much you want for it?

Hey, I haven’t thought about price much yet… I’d be pretty happy if I got 80% of the retail price of the parts… Which would be about £700… I know the market / resale value isn’t always great on this stuff, but it’s still a pretty decent saving vs. new considering there is no build labour charge in there…

Anyway, if / when I stick it up on ebay / gumtree I’ll update a link here too

Where abouts are you based and would you be interested in selling just the monitor?

Hi Andy, I’m in Limehouse. I’m planning to sell it all as 1 lot, but if it doesn’t work out and someone wants the rest w/out monitor I’ll drop you a note.


Hey if you still got monitor how much do you want
