Description

I love buying people's old computers and making them desirable again, so when I saw someone selling their old Ryzen system for $220, I quickly offered to pick it up for $200 and they accepted. The computer came with the Ryzen CPU, motherboard, video card, and some extras that I didn't include in the final build. Overall the core components of this build were really cheap to acquire.

CPU / Motherboard - The star of the show, I knew a cheap budget Ryzen build would sell well in the marketplace. Personally I wouldn't use this CPU, but for the price I got it for, the performance and the ability to upgrade gives this combo a tremendous value.

Memory - I actually had this kit lying around from a previous deal waiting for an Intel build and ended up throwing it in this one.

Storage - My first time using an ADATA branded SSD. I bought this one because it was cheap and the green label actually matched the theme I was going for.

Video Card - Came with the original computer, I would've upgraded this to at least a RX570/GTX1060 but decided to just save costs and let the Ryzen sell the PC for me.

Case - Picked this up on a used deal on Facebook for $20! I was originally going to use this case for a build that used those ugly green OEM motherboards, but I never got one that I liked so I used this mATX combo instead. This case was never used as far as I can tell so it came in great condition.

Power Supply - Picked this guy up brand new for very cheap after MIR. Perfect price/performance for this system and blacked sleeved cables look nice.

Other Features - I added some cheapy $2 chinese green LED strips at the top of the case. Honestly it makes the case way too bright and makes the motherboard look like a cheap OEM Dell. It still looked pretty cool, sooooo much green!

I really wanted to hold onto this case since. I got it for super cheap and was actually a fan of the neon green, but the dimensions and layout really bugged me. I'm not a huge fan of the flat motherboard and these cube cases are just a little too big for my taste. Ultimately I found a buyer within a day that really liked the green theme I had going. I also posted it for a cool $420 so there's that also. Thanks for reading ;)

3570k + GTX 1070 for $500 is actually a pretty good deal. Good luck will sell, especially if it's in an H500.

I feel so old when I see something like "selling their old Ryzen" because they aren't old yet, to me!

Haha I'm with you...but the guy priced it as "old" so I'm not arguing! Should start getting used to it though, the used pc parts market is going to start flooding with Ryzen stuff.

I've heard people getting up to 3.7Ghz on the Wraith Stealth! That being said though I was way too cheap to upgrade the cooler anyways. Most of my customers don't even care about OCing.
