    Unable to resist the temptation of VR, I've recently upgraded my PC in preparation for delivery of an Oculus Rift, and so now have the following components for sale:
    PLEASE NOTE - NO CPU COOLING INCLUDED - YOU WILL NEED TO SOURCE THIS YOURSELF (I have no idea what happened to the stock cooler, and I've recycled the 3rd party heat sink I was using in my new setup).

    All purchased together back in Nov 2011 at an original cost of £350.

    The PC has been used regularly since without any problems. It's been in use for a couple of hours most days, probably about 40% of that time for gaming on average. Although suitable for overclocking, I have never been bothered to figure out how to, nor needed to. Paired with a decent graphics card, it's coped well with games like Warframe, Elite Dangerous, Cities: Skylines, Rise of the Tomb Raider at decently high settings (possibly max - TBH I just use GeForce Experience to set optimum settings and don't take too much notice of the detail).

    As stated, I'm only selling now as an upgrade is required for the Oculus Rift (running a GTX970, the performance is just short of that required, albeit not officially supported - see 3DMark score attached. The Oculus checking tool also didn't seem to like the USB3 controller suggesting need for a separate controller card, though I've never had any connectivity issues with any other kit).

    The motherboard comes in the original packaging complete with all included bits and bobs. I've left the CPU in the board and will secure the RAM in the box.

    Not looking to split at this time.

    If it helps, I can include an old XFX Radeon HD 5770 graphics card for an additional £25.

    If you have any questions, please post and I'll do my best to answer.

    Thanks for looking

    Delivery: Delivery cost is included

    Why don't you overclock the cpu?
    Seems like you're only just under the Oculus Rift recommended spec and even a modest overclock should send you over. These 2500Ks can OC to around 5 Ghz, with sufficient cooling.

    Fair enough mate. Sometimes it's just time to upgrade I guess :)

    Would you be interested in splitting the items? If yes, I can offer £18 posted for the Memory kit. Let me know if this interests you or not. I can Paypal you and add an extra quid to cover Paypal fee.
    Cheers

    Hi cabbie19 - great stuff. I'll assume you didn't want the graphics card unless you say otherwise. PM incoming :)
    777sevy - not keen to split, but bundle now sold anyway, sorry
