Do you really need 2 monitors and a TV? I wouldn’t pay £1k for the main PC and for gaming I’d much rather a single 1080p 144Hz monitor than 3x 60Hz displays. Also warranties are usually not transferable and gpu prices have come down a lot in the last year. Personally I would not pay more than £500 for the core PC without monitors.

Is he really giving away 2 monitors and a TV included in the price?
If not, then you can get a new pc with same specs for less money.

Monitors aren't included I forgot to take them off. So how much would you say the pc is worth? It's basically new because he built it last year. If it really is only £914 I'm willing to pay the 1k because I'm not exactly strapped for cash and he's my friend.

Because its used, and hes your friend, id say 20-40% less than new. So 6-700 pounds, being generous.
But, thats between you and your friend. You know the system, brand new is only worth about 900 pounds.

1 year in age really tanks the price that much? I know barely anything about building pcs, is there a good reason for this?
