    Not sure about that. I would baulk at paying more than $300 for the rest of the system (second hand), and that's just a break-even point if you part out. I definitely wouldn't advocate keeping the base system, looks like a basic bitch.

    yea the gfx card sells for 2400 alone so 600 for the rest was a bit meh, unknown mb, cheap ram, apu at least so if you removed the GPU the PC alone would work still, looks like they wanted to get rid of some stock.

    excellent, hands down one of the nicest looking 30 series cards out there, epic all-white build to match?
