Morning Phil007,


Ideally I would start again with a whole new system (such as the one below I have quoted) as upgrading in stages if it can be avoided is definitely preferable.

If you did want to do it in stages I would buy the Motherboard, CPU, RAM, cooler, SSD and HDD as that will squeeze in under that $1500 mark.


Going for the best CPU you can at the time is preferable as in the future if you do decide to upgrade your GPU the CPU will still be more than capable of driving it.

Thanks Thomas,
I would like to go ahead.

Would it be worth trying to sell my old system on trademe etc? At a rough guess what would I list it for? I have no idea what its worth if it is worth anything?

Cheers
Phil

I'm not sure how much you would be able to get for the old system but it's definitely worth a go.


Worse case scenario you could always use it as a Media PC or in home server.


I've double checked your quote and all it all looks like we still have stock of everything.


Would you like to place your order online or would you like to proceed with an in store order?


If you would like to make an online order I can create a special order link for you to add to your shopping cart :)

Hey Thomas,

Sorry to be a pain, my Son has expressed interest in putting this rig together with me as a project. How much would it be for just the parts (with out hardware and windows install and RTB e.t.c)?

T.I.A
