|Subject: High End Used Gaming PC For Sale! Tue Jul 27, 2010 1:23 pm|| |
Since several of our clan and non-clan members playing BF2 and other older games would like to play BC2 and BF3 (when it comes out, LOl!).
I’ve recently priced some new Gamer PC’s for filiftos and others, and I thought, I’d offer a lower cost alternative using some of my used PC’s and their running parts. After pricing many of these retail and custom PC’s, many have topped $1600.00. I've also researched just replaceing these parts new and the total is over $1000.00 just for these parts.
I’ll be offing a PC with similar or better performance for about ½ the price $ 850.00! ($700.00 if all subtractions are taken)
The $700.00 PC, I’ll put together, will run Games, will run faster and have several performance and safety features those retail PC’s won’t have, like RAID 0 or 5! PC will also have all the standard support softwares loaded like Adobe Reader, Game Booster and all gameing ready OS tweaks performed!
Since this will be assembled from the best of my personal and company Socket 775 PC stock, I can only do this for one person right now.
You will have a choice of Cases, CPUs, Mother Boards, Video Cards, Operating Systems and Raid Configurations.
Choice #1 Cases:
Both cases cool very well but the silver case #2 will work better with SLI mother boards and SLI video cards.

Features: Front Panel USB & Audio
Fans: 1x 240mm Side fan, 2x 80mm Front fans, 1x 120mm Rear fan, 1x 120mm & 1x 80mm Card Cooling fans. (All these extra fans ensure great cooling!)
Case#2. Larger Silver Mid Tower Gamers Case with Florescent Blue Front Lighting.
Features: Front Panel USB & Audio
Fans: 1x 80mm Side fan, 2x 80mm Front fans, 1x 120mm Rear fan, 1x 120mm & 1x 80mm Card Cooling fans. (All these extra fans ensure great cooling!)

* Note use of this CPU is equal to the retail PC’s dual cores and i3’s.
(Subtract $50.00 for this CPU, will still play both BC2 and BF3 very well!)
Choice #4 Video Cards:
New Video Card #1: EVGA GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (Will support BC2 and BF3 on all High settings and many other games for years to come, direct X 9, 10 and 11 support for Windows 7!)

New Video Card #1: EVGA GeForce GTS 250 1GB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (Will support BC2 on all High settings but BF3 may need some scaling back and should support any game available today at all high settings, Direct X 9 and 10 Only)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (included, fastest)
Windows XP Pro Corp SP-3 32bit (Subtract $50.00 for this OS, fast)
