    Sure, it's beautiful... but would you pay $2500 for it?

      I like how performance uplift from Greg's 900 $ to sellers value of 2500 $ would be like 2-3% but price would go up like 3times xd sure..worth it right? even if you're RGB fan it's not worth it. Like it's not like you watch PC box 90% of time ; you watch /percieve perforrmance/monitor. I would always suggest against buying monitors bundled up with other things; unless it's brand new or if you want cheap monitor for office pc.

      Prolly not, but why would you buy anything but a Ryzen 5 2600x for gaming atm? It's... the best gaming CPU for price to performance. You aren't ever going to run into bottleneck at the CPU with this chip regardless what game you are running.

  • JP Stone

    I hare when sellers plug the specs into PC Parts Picker and then quote that price as the asking. As a now experienced 3rd party seller of a custom built PCs I gotta say its tough sometimes. This is for sure over priced with a 1070 and R5 2600. In many cases though the sellers expect to get back what they put into the PC and also want to value (or overvalue) the time they took to build it and for their "expertise." I myself had to come to terms with #1 I was not going to get what I put into the build back and #2 my time and effort putting together the PC are worth little to nothing to someone looking to buy a gaming rig on Facebook or Craig's List or what have you... To often sellers will over-inflate the price because they are experienced builders and made a nice looking PC but you can also get a nice PC from NZXT Bld or IBuyPower or other boutique custom PC fabs and they are all new parts with a warranty. You also gotta consider that if someone really wants a costume gaming rig they want it cheap because if Money is no object they can go buy the most expensive offering Alienwear has at the moment or they can take their money and build their own rig which is a lot of the fun for many. If you want to build custom PCs for profit...Don't. I mean can it be done...sure but not easily. If you love buildilng computers look for a job at micro center or something and if you want to sell your old rig because you need cash quick or want to upgrade be reasonable and do not expect to get 100% MSRP for all parts and a premium for labor.

    I want to get into gaming pc's. I really appreciate you taking the time to do these vids as when i first saw this pc I'm like shuddup and take my money coz that pc is CAF. But between your channel and a few others I've been watching, man have I learnt some stuff...... I looked at pc's on line and the prices and now pick apart what they're selling, where be4 I would want to throw my money at any one who had rgb's everywhere..... so yeah thanks for your help...... I'm currently running a 6yr old laptop and thinking switching to dex on my note 10+ would be better...

    I don't understand why people sell their entire PC's expecting to get what they paid for them back. Typically, to reduce my losses when building a new PC -- I keep all parts I can reuse such as RAM, SSD, HDD, Fans and sometimes the case. I simply sell the MOBO, CPU and GPU and hope I get enough for a new CPU for all 3. Not only that but selling storage such as HDD is such a eehhh.. thing to do considering you can pull data erased from the drives with free software.

    Good video....So I tried to build one close to this ad and here is what I configured:
    With an RTX 2070 Super and a 27" IPS 155Hz monitor for 1440p gaming. For $500.00 less. To match his price of 2500 dollars you would swap out the RTX 2070 Super for the RTX 2080 Super er...close...price goes upto $2232.00 with an RTX 2080 Super Gaming X Trio from MSI. Still $268 cheaper and better graphics card and monitor.

  • Mateusz Wojtkiewicz

    There's nothing wrong with spending $1000 on making your pc look nice. It's only wrong when you had to sacrifice performance to do so. Spend your money first on that 3950X and on that RTX2080 and only then spend it on custom cables and magnetic fans.

    True Greg, with $2500 I could build also build a better system. That the sad part of the used reseller market, they think they have gold and that gold will never depreciate in price. But they forget in the PC world the new tech usually move the older tech down the ladder of price. That's an overpriced system for sure.

    I think you're reaching on this one... Aren't these videos supposed to keep people from being scammed? I don't see much of anything wrong with this ad other than possibly the "new" label, and maybe the guy had an unused 1070 new in box laying around and put it in the build. Take $500 off for the GPU and you get ~$2300 for the parts with a 10% mark up for the build labor, it's not outrageous at all.

    I recently spent $400 updating my rig to a 011-Dynamic with a vertical GPU mount, a new AIO, and 9 total ML fans. Doesn't improve my performance one bit, but it looks nicer.

    Just because you don't like the parts used, and it can be built by using cheaper parts, doesn't mean the seller is scamming anyone. Is it a frugal purchase, probably not, but it's also not a scam. By that logic, all computer parts should be as cheap as the cheapest alternative. "This 360 AIO should only be sold for $20 cause I can buy a cheap air cooler for that price. Why would I pay $200 for a case, when I can buy one for $35? You can't ask $100 for a PSU when the one that came with the $35 case will work."
