*[SOLD]* Budget gaming PC / Best price-performance rig

I had such a big urge again to build a PC. So I thought I'd buy somewhat cheap components that would still make a great sellable price-performance rig, and also decided to get half of the components new.

The main parts like the motherboard, Intel Core i5 3550, 8GB of Kingston DDR3 and the AORUS RX570 are used. Everything else is new. The RX570 was a bargain at 85€, but it had to go through a thorough cleaning process as it had likely been used as a mining card, and had some really nasty dust clumps. Cleaning it and changing the TIM on GPU core to Noctua's NT-H1 lowered the temperatures around 3 degrees Celsius on average, which was great.

This PC can run most of the triple-A titles on 1080p at 60fps with med-high settings. Competitive titles like CS:GO, Overwatch and Fortnite run around 150fps average.

Overall spent just above 300€ for this build, and I'm hoping to sell it with a small profit. Hope you guys enjoy this budget price/performance build, that still packs a good punch.
