    Hey guys,

    My son has been wanting a gaming PC for ages and now seriously looking to buy.

    He is mainly interested in FPS shooters,PUBG etc, survival games and The Isle.....

    Found a used system locally :

    i7-4790K Gaming PC for sale

    Processor - i7-490k.
    GFX- 1070ti 8GB MSI Geforce GTX 256-bit
    RAM-16gb DDR3
    HDD - 1x 250 SSD - 2x 1TB Stanard HDD
    Display - BenQ Xl2411z
    Peripherals- Gaming Keyboard Razer Black Widow, Corsair Scemitar Mouse, Blue Yeti Desktop MIC, Microsoft HD CAM, Avermedia HD Capture Card.
    Windows 10 Pro - Legit Copy.
    Case -Corsair 540 High Airflow Case

    From what I can see this is a decent system and should be good for gaming for a while, what do you think ? What do you think this would be valued at ?

    Cheers for all advice [​IMG]

    edit - put this as build advice and now cant change it - sorry if this is wrong !

    It's advertised at £700 but seller will accept £600.

    I was thinking CPU/MOBO/RAM may need replaced as future upgrades but considering the new cost of the keyboard, mouse and mic etc I thought £600 was'nt too bad.

    We would not consider new and this looks to be the best system at a reasonable price which is local to me.

    I will ask for mobo and PSU info....

    Looks a fair spec for the money to me.

    The accessories are worth a fair bit and some like the Blue Yeti Desktop MIC and Avermedia HD Capture Card can be sold to recoup some of the cost.
    The SSD is a bit small but can be sold and upgraded to a larger capacity.
    It looks like a good deal to me.

    PSU Corsair GS800 and mobo is -Asustek Z97-P.

    Going to go for it and as said above the bits not needed will be sold on, probably upgrade mobo, cpu, ram next year and sell current bits on too.

    Thanks for the advice
