Eh? You said it was yours though?

So you're looking to buy it from someone else instead.
no believe it or not my brother and i found a deal with the same specs that i have in my pc (still havent gotten that 3770 though xD).
I told him that my i7 build is good for like fortnite,csgo,warzone,etc.. and he wishes to play the same games+he doesnt want to spend money on a new build since he just wants something until he buys ps5 in like 2021 or 2022 (i cant quite remember).The seller wants 300$ for the build,but im more of a "build it myself" type of guy so thats why i asked is it worth it to pay 300$ for the pc,or build it by ourselves for cheaper.Its crazy how low the prices are for a decent budget gaming machine when you are building your own pc component by component.I think the difference between mine and the sellers build is just the card r9 380 from MSI (not gigabyte like mine),the ram somekind of ddr3 (2x8gb),the mobo is the same,psu is the same,of course the case is different,and i think he has like hyper 212 evo cooler,i have be quiet! Pure Rock Slim.Bassically its very similar in performance to mine just different brands.

~Ohh! I gotcha.

300USD is a bit of a stretch...

Mobo: 30 - it's a locked board
cpu: 50, probably 40, since it's not a K SKU
ram: 30
gpu: 50
psu: freebie - it isn't a strong unit
hdd: another freebie - they're so affordable anyways
ssd: 20
chassis: 15
cooler: 10
= 195-205
See if you can maybe talk it down to 250 - definitely not 300.
Gotta be careful with some of these sellers.

ok,but wouldnt i be able to save some money by buying parts separatelly and building it myself,since the parts listed here are cheaper than in this sellers pc.I think i can save up to 50$ which is another 250gb-500gb ssd which will for sure make a difference.

Yeah, and it could save you a potential headache too.


Also, you said that the specs between PCs are similar, right? The only real difference being brands. That doesn't increase the value.
That seller just wants a tad too much for that PC.
