    What is this?

    Up for sale today is a gaming system which has pretty much everything you need sans case. It could benefit from a better CPU, but I include a single core 2.8Ghz Sempron 145 to get you started that CAN unlock to dual core (not sure how stable that is, but worked fine for me briefly).

    What's left of a fine rig:
    This is precisely what you will get, in newegg linked parts:

    1x MSI 970-g45 AM3+ Motherboard
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130608


    2x 2GB DDR3-1333 DIMMS from this kit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231260
    Only 2 DIMMS, not 6

    the MSI Motherboard: $35

    2GB G.Skill Ram: $15 each (2 available)


    What's the catch?

    I have to admit, there is a slight catch. As many have already guessed I'm sure, This was a mining rig. It was however babied and kept in very low temp Air conditioned. I will even warranty every part here for 90 days, and most still have manufacturer warranties to boot!

    However, there are some parts which have some minor defects, listed below. Please read.


    1.) The motherboard is missing a SATA connector that broke off during a bad hotswap. It still has 5 SATA ports and the connector was a clean break, meaning no shorts or anything bad!

    All other parts still have manufacturers warranties, and are for all intents and purposes, flawless and great for a gamer. A real steal at this price

    Finally, picture proof time:

    Thanks for looking, and remember, individual offers are accepted but a complete system order gets the best deal!

    They were mining cards, even when taken care of that always brings the value down... just the stigma and I feel I got my money out of them, lol. ;)

    One thing my heatware should show: I always disclose potential issues, and I always price fair. :)

    They are a good price... and good cards, despite the one bad connector on them. I always try to price with what I got out of something in mind, and in this case, they were good little cards that made me a lot of money before retiring to a life of good gaming (And they are still very good at that.)... so I'm passing a bit of that wealth here. :)

    I'm actually playing Rome 2 on them right now as a stress test, dude, they kick my GTX 580's ass, the poor thing!

    These will go to ebay for higher prices in 24 hours. Please buy them before that horrible online-mob eats them alive... I'd much prefer a TPU user to get them. :)

    Heck, I'll even ship international for the actual shipping cost... for most of these items I see it costing sub $20, some sub $10 to anywhere in europe...

    I sold the first 7970 to myself playing Rome 2 on it too long (hate it when that happens), so now there is only 1 7970 left...

    My GTX 580 will likely be coming up for sale soon though, if nvidia fans are running around. :)

    One last bump before I convert to ebay auctions. Grab a deal! I'll even consider best offers for the time being, though I'd ask you to keep them fair. ;)

    Bump. These are now on ebay, but I will honor prices here, and even give you $15 off on the GPU just for being a TPU member. :) That's $ 175 people!

    SSD is pending.

    Still, to answer your question in the event it does not sell, I'm not sure of the exact wear on the SSD but it's been used approximately 2 months with 2 windows installs to near full capacity w games and such. I imagine the total write-wear is under 600GB.

    As far as firmware is concerned, it's been running the factory firmware. No updates yet that I know of for M550's

    SSD and PSU sold. We are down to those sticks of ram and the mobo. Buy both and I'll throw in a unlockable Sempron 145 I have lying around free! Heatsink too!
