Too much of a risk, especially these days.
My last... 3 PC's have been built from 2nd hand parts. Mrs computer is all second hand parts.
The only new part in my current PC is the PSU.
My last 3 gaming PCs were also built from used parts the only parts bought new in my current PC are an AIO watercooler, games SSD, case and PSU.
I always buy a brand new quality PSU for every build without exception. Everything else is sourced from the good trading folks here on OCAU, or cheap hand-me-downs from mates who upgrade every 12-18 months.[/b][/b]
Why on earth would you do that??
...im running my psu's into the dirt. but if you buy bottom of the ladder you will probably get used to buying them every 3-5 years anyway i guess...
I've had my current psu for probably about 6 or more years. Buy a decent one to begin with and you won't need to keep buying them.
If you want to stick to windows 7 compatible hardware, you can get a haswell era cpu/motherboard and still play the latest games. That's what I would do if I was going to buy a pc today
