      Although with that said, I bought a whole PC for $200 Aussie dollars (our dollars are about as worthless as yours) about a year ago. It has a pleb tier i3 4360, and only 8gb of Vengeance DDR3, but it also came with a 4gb GTX770 Gainward Phantom GPU. It's a belter of a GPU for the price, and despite the rig being ghetto-tastic, it plays all my games at higher frame rates and higher graphics settings than my old PS4. Sold the PS4 for $150 with no hard drive (Took out the 2TB I upgraded the PS4 to, for use as a storage drive in the PC, and the PS4's original 500GB drive is now in use in my old Fat PS2, running custom OS and stuff), so really the PC owes me nothing, as it has just replaced the PS4.
      Cheap second hand stuff can be great, provided you find a good seller. I bought my cheap old rig from a friend of a friend, hence the great price.

    Ryzen 5 with 2x 8gb ram is the way to go now ... , over clock then a little bit and you can get a really good fps on any game , and u will save money for buying a gpu in the future

    jerrylee22 3 months ago

    $799 for a great 1080 Ti. Even $740=760 for ones with questionable aesthetics (usually the white ones).
    I've seen the same $800 1080 Ti I got sell for $850-1100, though, so you need to find the right seller. Even Amazon may have two or three different sellers with very different pricing. Like he said in the video, I did have a chance to pick up a Nvidia 1080 Ti Founder's Edition for $699, but I absolutely did not want that. If I actually had enough money left, I maybe could have snagged it to resell in this crazy market.

    i have a phenom ii x4 960T (yes o know I need to upgrade my cpu and I do plan too) I was using a GTX 570 which is about a 7percent bottleneck, but I just got a GTX 1060 3gb which is a 24 percent bottleneck. Now will the better card even out and still be a upgrade from the 570 at all or will I get better performance with the 570 all together? I am sorry I just got into pc and I honestly don't know if I should keep the 1060 out of my system for now till i get a better cpu or if it is still a upgrade from the 570 even though the bottleneck is way higher? Thank you in advance!
