    tfw can do this in half with a 980ti for 200. Xeon workstation 6 core with 16gb or more ram, 1tb, get a cheapo pc case, a cheap psu, and a 980ti and it can be under 400, around 320-350 depending on the day

    Really the only sketchy thing in this build is that no name ram. The 1600, and the 1070 should carry any crappy ddr4 you throw at it. I mean this video could have been "We built a gaming computer with parts from, Mecari, Facebook marketplace, etc... (Insert reliable reseller website) Over all you stand to save around $200-300 over new retail. Bout the same amount youd save if bought from Amazon/new egg vs. BestBuy/any big box store.

    They buy used pc parts off of Ebay and spend the next 12 months fixing it because things keep dying. I've built close to 100 pcs for myself/friends/family and I don't do used parts any longer. If they don't want to buy it retail they can build it and maintain it themselves. Nobody is selling 100% new retail parts on ebay.
    You guys buy all the openbox/refurb/used crap off of Ebay that you want with no warranty or possibility of manufacturer RMA. I'll spend 10% more and have the peace of mind that when something goes wrong I have somewhere to turn.
    Maybe quit being cheap and saving for another month or two so you can buy retail parts that have never been used and have a full warranty from the manufacturer and good store return policies. It's worth the extra money more than twice over to me.

    I've never gotten an eBay motherboard with the wrong I/O shield. When it comes to motherboards, that's all I care about. You could ship it in a chopped-up cardboard box so long as you include the proper I/O shield and I'm good.

    I've got two of the same sticks but they are like Samsung ripoffs at 2400mhz cl15. The funny thing was they were both 4 gb sticks and I paired them together on my AsRock B350M mobo and it failed to initiate them in dual channel.pretty weird stuff. *I also tempered with voltage settings, didn't help.

Not bad in my opinion. I'm surprised he can't find cheap ram though. I've picked up a few 16gb sets of ram for $50 or less.

    I've actually built my last 3 PCs this way, everything besides the storage and case was from eBay.
    About £675 for a;
    i7 8700
    GTX 1070 Armour 8GB
    Z370-A MotherBoard
    16gb Corsair Vengeance 3000MHz
    240Gb M.2 SSD
    1Tb HDD
    EVGA 80+ 600W PSU
    All packed into a CiT case
    Considering I absolutely thrash ARMA 3 with about 30-45Gb of MODS at any one time, it holds up bloody well at max settings

    so you went to ebay and bought everything new? wtf?! The idea is to buy all your parts second hand ol' long john linus. i could make an x58 or x79 based pc that would just absolutely ruin your build on price to performance. And perform better at 1440p. for between 300-400 bucks.

    my issue with all these videos.. but I'm being a picky prick.. I never see (and you guys aren't the only ones) action intense scenes in the games you demo. Just for example like Doom, you may get 60fps on boot but by 1/2 way into the game, shit's so intense you could be lookin at a steady 20-30fps. but I'm just being picky.. I'm sure that's more trouble to go through than it's worth.
