    Hey guys,

    As the title suggests, my computer is finally on it's last leg and I am in the market for a complete build. Emphasis on gaming and multitasking so CPU and GPU are my main targets.

    Looking for:

    CPU: Amd fx8350 or an i7-4770k (price will dictate the rest of the build)

    GPU: Anything in the $200 range (love Nvidia)

    OS: Windows 8.1+ (imagine someone here has the hookup on keys)

    MOBO: Asus or MSI (color nd performance important)

    The rest I will piece together from other sources unless someone has a decent combo like CPU, Mobo, and RAM.

    Looking to entertain all offers and will spend my budget by next week. Let me know what you have and I will throw my moneez at you :)

    P.S.
    I am almost 100% sure this is the right area for this, if not please advise.

    eBay is your friend here. Make sure you get an SSD drive as well. It will make all the difference.

    Ah yes. Ebay has some things I'm watching. And most definitely the SSD. Nothing like a quick booting computer and programs.

    What kind of problems are you experiencing right now with your pc? AMD is dropping in a few months and will be 2x more powerful than the fx 8350. So you may be able to get an ssd, do some cleaning and extend current lifespan before a total upgrade.

    I wasn't trying to diagnose a problem. I'm just at the point where the computer won't keep up with anything I want to do.
    My computer has stayed virus and dust free for quite some time. It's just time for an upgrade. I know how to maintain my equipment ;)

    on average the 6770k is $50 more expensive from my research with a marginal performance increase. Only main benefits would be supported DDR4 memory and 64GB max but I don't need that much juice.

    Don't you know any part specialist sites? Im in the UK so can't really advise you I tend to stay away from ebay unless its a vital piece and it's dead cheap. Tried a fresh format to see if it speeds it up? I managed to speed mine up by restricting windows defenders auto scan when using certain apps. Leeching bugger that is. I also tend to do a lot of editing of priority for files that require more power. Sometimes no matter what you do age gets to a machine and it needs an overhaul like you have found out :D

    I think everyone is missing the point here. I want to know what people have to sell. Any of the parts I have listed. Nothing is going to improve the performance of my computer any more. It is overclocked, gpu is only 1gb od ddr3 with very low T/flops. I'm not asking for repair advice, just some deals on some quality used parts that someone might have laying around.

    I'll entertain ebay listings, craigslist ads, etc..

    Scored an i7 4770k (Haswell) cpu, an ASUS Hero VI z87, and 16gb of Corsair Dominator RAM for $350 today , pretty stoked because it puts me under budget and will be a hell of a system for the next 4-5 years when I'm done. Got a free blue ray drive in the deal to.

    Still looking for:
    Video Card, 4GB preferred DDR5.
    Need a 750w+ Power Supply
    A physical copy of Windows 8.1
    SSD hard drive 256GB
    ATX case

    Find it hard to believe you guys have nothing laying around.
    I pay cash from verified paypal business account!
