Hello, some of you may remember me from when I was active a few years back.
I recently sold a significant portion of my rig because:
A. I never OC'd it and a K series i7 was becoming a waste.
B. Most of the games I normally play don't use more than 2 cores.
C. The 2GB Vram of the 960 was holding my modded Skyrim back.
D. Value was dropping fast so I decided to get as much money back from it as possible without really ripping anyone off.
As of today everything has been sold aside from a stick of ram and my SSD and I made around rupees 62000 of which I have 44000 left.
I have been looking at second hand computers and parts for the last couple of weeks and have recently come across what seems to be a good deal but I don't know if it's worth it today.
Here's what it entails:
An i5 2400 with the standard Intel cooler
An ECS H67H2-M3 motherboard
A single Corsair 8GB 1600Mhz stick
A Gigabyte Luxo M30 casing
Some 450W Corsair PSU
The price of everything is rupees 12000 and the seller lives in my city so I can go over and check everything before buying it.
I was thinking of getting it, replacing the PSU with a new 500-550W unit for 5000-6000 and adding a 1TB HDD for 3000 and then saving up some extra money to buy a GTX 970 or GTX 1060 6GB (whichever one is cheaper) like a month or two later.
Is this a good deal or am I better off looking for something else?
