Questions concerning buying a used PC.
So I've been wanting to build my own PC for a while now but with the market beeing as it is I don't see that happening for a bit. So I've been searching up used PCs in my off time and found this one thats selling for $1600 and I wanted some opinions on if its a good deal or not (kind of new at this).

Here are the specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5 10400 Cooler: Cooler master Hyper 212 Black GPU: 3070 Founders Edition Motherboard: MSI Z490-A Pro RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3600mHz Memory: 1TB Wd Blue SSD Power Supply: EVGA 750 B5 Modular Case: NZXT H510 Black

Also has a Wi-fi antenna and some extra fans inside the case. Is this a good deal? Apparently its being sold because the person enlisted. Is it even smart to buy a used PC right now? Sorry for so many questions and thanks for the help in advance!

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

Pretty exciting existence.



Is it any worse than someone who makes fake accounts on a daily basis to ask people why they bother with this forum? Despite having your bogus accounts closed to the forum, you just can't stay away LOL.

"You mad, bro?
Actually I am kinda proud of myself that I get banned for the most innocuous statements.
While all you bitches just moan and fight and name call and generally be trolls, but apparently, you suck Chinese dicks or sumthin."

How is it you don't see this is what you are doing? You are literally trolling, trying to start a fight and moaning while you accuse others of it.

Dab less, your reality is getting foggy.

Why not just pick a name and stop coming in with a new alias everyday? People used to chat with you, you used to chat with people, now you just come on say some shit to poke at people then your out. It's funny some times, I am not mad at you. I just don't see the point in it, your the troll who is anti troll? How does this seem logical to you? Do you or whatever, I don't care at all, I just don't see the point.

Logical doesn't apply here, that's why some folks somehow think a simple post about a PC, with no advertising, is spam. Old folks are so cute!

...and to OP, IF you are genuine: (and there's no reason why they wouldn't be, despite a chance they could be some "new, advanced" "spammer":. No, that's too much for a used, mid level computer, at least here in the US. 1000.00 can buy the most powerful gaming PC, and if you don't game, or host a network, you just don't need the excess power, honestly....it's like a 300hp car on a 55mph highway...much will be unused.

Now, wait 3 weeks, go and edit this post for nefarious purposes, lol...
Hilarious, this place isn't worthy of "past tense, secret advertising"...once a thread falls off the front page, no one will see it, lol, And Cilika makes a dozen threads like this a week, followed by Skeets....maybe they are "secret spammers from the future" also?
