boredom can be a killer of wallets.
i was browsing ebay today. and saw an nvidia 1070 for about a 150 dollars. ( I dont look often at them. The shortage of supply in video cards 2 years ago made sure i stayed away from checking prices until recently) given that my last "decent" card i have had on hand are an amd 390 and nvidia 1050ti for my hp computer that i use in my living room, it got me slightly interested in checking prices.
One thing led to the other and i ended up messaging the seller asking him if he would sell the card for 125 ( I am low balling mind you and i feel a bit bad for doing it) I half figured he would say no. Well to my surprise he accepted. Which got me thinking what other budget shopping i could get away with. I started searching carefully and so far, I have to say i am surprised at what i was able to pick up for a second hand gaming pc:
I am well aware i am gambling it so much but (specially with those SAS drives) but lets see what i end up building end of day to replace my crummy hp 6300 in my living room. now to find a cheap 240gb ssd to install win 10. The pc already comes with 500gb regular hd but we know that is not going to cut the mustard.
stay tuned for the follow up on a massochists quest to build a garbage gaming pc for his living room.
