So I built this pc from used parts last summer for about 400€ only part I bought new was case. I bought CPU, MOBO, Ram and PSU as a combo. And I didn't even know what psu was coming with and tbh I didn't even care what it was as long it got power to the pc. But when I got the parts it was pleasant surprise that it was full modular and from reputable manufacturer. I was gonna buy better cpu i7 or i5-K but that combo was the only way that I could get with Z97 chipset mobo at the time and I wasn't gonna wait until I get the best kind of deal and I think that it was pretty good deal. I also bought GPU used but therewere nothing special but just when I had send the money to sellers bank account there were 980 sold at same price as the 970 I had just bought. I bought my ssd basically brand new from one guy because he accidentallu bought sata version and not nvme version of 970 Evo. First batch of parts game prefty nicely (CPU, MOBO Ram, PSU, ssd and GPU) because both sellers had sent ghe parts same day throught postal services and I got lift from my mother to post iffice which was like 200m away from me not nice to walk with microvawe (The part combo), box and keyboard box (GPU) and ssd. I wasn's so lucky with the case because I had ordered it after the part just to be certain that everything i get will fit to it si it came the day after the other parts. I had to go with stroller because I wasnt gonna carry it from the post office to my home because it wasn't still become magically nice to walk that about 200m with big and geavy box so I took my mothers stollers for little sister which propably looked very akward for others. I had 750GB hard drive and DVD-Drive which Iactually installed but I used it for nfs most wanted 05, and nfs underground 1 and 2 but there is now lying darude before the storm cd because I havent it really much and I put it as joke to listen sandstorm from it.

I have been living happily with the pc I have put some cheap RGB leds which I basically just stole from my brothrer to the computer but they have some leds broken so If I put them on white some of them will be pink but it looks somwhat cool because pink spot will illuminate from cpu heatsink. I also bad do buy new hardrive (surprise) and one 1T drive for basically a steal so now you may thin how much I got it for. Was it 2€? Maybe 15€? or did he actually steal it? The answer is I got it for 5€ from local recycling center. It was WD purple or something I don't remeber and can't get to my computer until next week.

I'm thinking about getting another 8gb of ram and 5775c if I'm lucky and can actually find that from somenoto sell but if not then I'm gonna get 4790K if I can get summer job. I will also paint my Gpu shroud and backplate white and maybe motherboard heatsinks if I'm brave enought.

Pics will come late next week when I get back to my computer
Some of the parts are still not on this website so sorry if you cant see it and in case of hardrives I cant check their models until I get to my computer.
English is not my first language so sorry if I wrote something wrong but if I did I would love if you could comment what did I write wrong and not to just chuckle alone lonely like you will always be (jk)
