I've been offered to buy an MSI Z270 M6 motherboard for $120.00 it has the original box but box isn't sealed but the components are still in the manufacturer's sealed bags. I'm buying for my son, he's bulding a computer. I know nothing about this stuff I grew up not knowing what a computer was much less what a microwaves purpose was when they first came out. So i'll appreciate any advice if it's correct thank you.

Start a thread of your own.

But no, i would not pay $120 for a 3 year old motherboard that cannot support the latest, or even last gen processors.
