Currently I have this pc:

CPU: AMD FX8320 3.5 Ghz Water Cooled
GPU: R9 270x W/ Aftermarket Cooler
RAM: 16gb DDR3 RAM
HDD: 1tb
SSD: 250gb
PSU: 650w

I've had this pc for about 5 years now, so it's getting pretty old so I'm going to be selling this pc (anyone got a good idea of what to price this at? It still runs most new games at MED/High Settings)


Here's the current build I've came up with, my budget is around $700-750 max

Is there anything wrong with this build? Also should I change anything in it?

I still need to pick a case and as far as peripherals and OS goes I already have all that.

NOTE: I will be taking my SSD out of my current PC and putting it into the new one I get, which is why I chose a 750GB HDD.


Currently on my 1tb HDD, I'm only using 200gb of space, and using most of my SSD so I really dont need more than 750gb max.

you could easily sell the old one for 400-600 dollars and then use that to get more RAM an SSD and maybe a case and fans etc.

Really you think I could do like 600?


I'm hoping to get at least $450 but still don't really want to go over 700-750 because I'm trying to save money right now lmao.

You could be the CPU is soon to be outdated with the way games are evolving.

i guess if you want to save money then yeah just replace the GPU and wait it out

That PSU is trash, $200 is waayyyy too much for a 1050Ti.

What monitor(s) will you be using with the system?
Will you be overclocking?
What exactly will you be using the new system for?


As far as your current system, sell the CPU/Mobo/RAM as a combo, might be ablee to get $120-140 for that. Not sure how much for the cooler because I don't know what specific cooler it is, but if it's a 5 year old AIO, it's about ready for the bin anyway. $50 or $60 for the GPU. PSU might be worth re-using if it's good quality. Just re-use the 1TB HDD and 250GB SSD from your current system.

The 1tb hdd has some issues or it's the PSU not sure so just going to get all new.
Monitors are both 1080p dont know the exact specs, no to overclocking. New system will be for gaming.

It could very well be the PSU, since we don't know what PSU you have. Your SSD is working anyway, so carry over your current storage and if you still have problems with the 1TB HDD on a new system, replace the HDD.


Can you tell us the make and model of your current case and PSU please. These aren't going to be worth selling probably, so I'd like to see whether they're for the bin, or worth re-using to save you some money or let you get better parts elsewhere within your budget.

Will you just be gaming? No editing/rendering/music production, etc? What kind of games will you be playing?
