I would like to see an article on this... I've been using Ebay quite a lot recently and i find it quite interesting how good a bargain you can find when it come to components. I was wondering, given a budget of say £800, how powerful a system you could build buying parts new from retailers and compare that to a system bought with parts from Ebay. Seeing as many of us are still unable to afford top-notch new hardware, Ebay seems like a worthwhile option, though some luck will of course be needed. If anyone from Bit-tech or CPC is reading this, could you please accept this challenge?? Give yourself a time limit of a month or 6 weeks. What do you think?
