    There was a coupon code in their email newsletter to drop it down to 550.
    Newegg is such a sad tale, same with TigerDirect.

    Seems like its in the same price/performance ballpark as budget builds with newer parts. Cheaper, even.

    If you were selling it, what price would you ask for it?

    Pretty close to the price you stated. Around $400-500 depending on who I'm selling to, and whether I'm trying to make money or unload older parts. I've only ever "sold" to friends and that involved them paying the costs for parts and then paying for a fancy meal or two.

    But $450 strikes me as a decent price for a computer that is comparable to a $500 newer computer. Walmart has occasionally sold a similar refurbished computer with a better GPU for even less though. I think it's been mentioned here. So that might make for a lower price point. (Edit: Amazon has a similarish refurbed HP tower at $550. But it has a gtx 1060 3gb and a 1tb hd instead of what your GPU and ssd. It probably has a worse cooler and psu. I think that makes yours pretty reasonable.).

    I'm just trying to offload hardware I don't use. I've always just sold pieces on ebay, forums, etc. I've never tried to sell a complete system before. I'm thinking facebook marketplace or a local craigslist type of website.
    There isn't really a market for this stuff around me, I usually see dell/hp machines for sale but never anything custom.
    I don't like selling to friends because when something breaks they usually bitch the most.

    I've got a 7700k, Asus 1070 dual fan and 32gb of ram. Occasionally when I start a game my AOC monitor will either go super blurry or will simply "no connection" black screen and continually cycle through on and off like there is nothing connected to the display. I've tried two different Displayport cables and still the same. Would it be an issue with my GPU?

    Have you tried it with the HDMI port?

    No I haven.t At least not yet. Is there much difference between the quality of HDMI and DP?

    No. It's just a question of whether or not HDMI can meet the demand. DP has a higher bandwidth, so it can support 8K or multiple monitors where HDMI cannot unless you have multiple ports, but for video quality where both can meet the demand, there's no difference.

    It only ever happens when I open the game also. I'm not sure why or how, I'd assume it's a graphics card issue, but I have all the latest driver updates and it still happens say once or twice a week. I've been gaming on PC for 20 years and I don't know what the hell is going on.
