  1. Took me 3 months to buy a pc only buy browsing through ebay.
    I got a PC with 8GB RAM, 980ti 6bg (founders edition), xeon e3 1230, a 600W power supply and 60GB Ssd for windows.
    It all cost me 250€

  2. I've got two of the same sticks but they are like Samsung ripoffs at 2400mhz cl15. The funny thing was they were both 4 gb sticks and I paired them together on my AsRock B350M mobo and it failed to initiate them in dual channel.pretty weird stuff. *I also tempered with voltage settings, didn't help.

  3. I built an ebay pc for $545 specs are i5 7600k, rx 580, z170a gaming m5, 16gb corsair vengeance ddr4 2400mhz ram, 120gb ssd, 1tb wd blue hdd, hyper 212 evo, evga 850w gq gold rated psu. Not bad in my opinion. I'm surprised he can't find cheap ram though. I've picked up a few 16gb sets of ram for $50 or less.

  4. I really just don't understand what's exciting about this. Almost every part imagineable is on ebay. And they're almost always new or the same condition as somewhere like amazon.

  5. I've actually built my last 3 PCs this way, everything besides the storage and case was from eBay.
    About £675 for a;
    i7 8700
    GTX 1070 Armour 8GB
    Z370-A MotherBoard
    16gb Corsair Vengeance 3000MHz
    240Gb M.2 SSD
    1Tb HDD
    EVGA 80+ 600W PSU
    All packed into a CiT case

    Considering I absolutely thrash ARMA 3 with about 30-45Gb of MODS at any one time, it holds up bloody well at max settings

  6. Who in their right mind, would pay 85$ for some Totally random unknown/unbranded DDR4-2400 ram, when you could buy RipJaws or Vengeance LSX for 65$ with the same specs literally everywhere ?
