Started with the case which I found being sold for $15 on Craigslist, it’s in fair shape despite the front USB ports not working and some light cosmetic problems.
After that, I picked up a computer awhile back on Craigslist for $100 which had the ram and hyper 212 I’ve put in this, I basically stripped the hyper 212 and ram off that build I bought and then put in 4gb and a stock cooler to replace em and resold it for $250 so I’m essentially also gaining the 8gb ram and hyper 212 for free.
The hard drive came next, it’s actually a 160gb Drive and not 250gb. I found it refurbished being sold for $9.99 on a Newegg flash sale and quickly picked it up, I originally bought 3 and was gonna raid 0 2 of them but I wasn’t expecting myself to be building more computers so since I don’t have any spare drives, I’ve just decided to throw this in.
I then came across an rx 560 being sold for $70 last night and he also had the mobo/cpu and power supply I am using in this build. I offered $140 for all the parts and he accepted so I quickly got home last night and put this system together.
