    Recently upgraded and this is now no longer in use gathering dust. Specifications below:

    • Case: NZXT (don't know the model).
      • Not all external front facing ports function, possibly due to amateur wiring to the mobo. E.g. fan controls works when twisting the knobs however, only one of the USB slots function, the other does not respond. Rear ports all work 100%).
    • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD7.
    • CPU: Intel i5 760.
    • CPU Cooling: Noctua NF-C12P (Rad) with NF-P14 (Fan).
    • RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8GB (2x 4GB).
    • GPU: ASUS EAH5850 1GB.
      • Plastic cover is missing which houses the fan, which makes this fan-less. Not had any issues playing CS 1.6 or CSGO.
    • PSU: Corsair CMPSU-950TX.

    It was used on a regular basis by my brother to browse, YouTube, play some CS, etc. Couldn't really handle anything more than that although we didn't try. Nothing has ever been overclocked or tampered with although, the cover falling off on the GPU was an accident during a clean up and I couldn't get it back on. The case itself was always placed in a breathable environment, was very conscious of keeping it cool due to age. As you can see from the specs above, it's a bit of a trip down memory lane for some and the PC is showing its age with knocks, scratches etc however, once you chuck in a hard-drive, it will fire up without issue.

    Price is for collection only due to weight from South Croydon CR2.

    Due to the amount of photos, I simply uploaded to Dropbox. Any questions, fire away.

    Price and currency: £130 > £100
    Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
    Payment method: Cash or PPG
    Location: South Croydon, UK
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

    Hi Jamie,

    I'll need to find a big enough box and of course there's the additional cost itself.

    I assume you're not anywhere nearby :)

    I am waaaay over in Suffolk, so economically it's not viable for me to pick up :(
    I would of course expect to bear the additional cost of shipping, a box is not essential, lots of bubble wrap is, i would recommend removal of the graphics card as it can get damaged if left in place and the parcel gets dropped ( i usually wrap the card and wedge inside the case with more bubble wrap, or newspaper).
    Economy shipping is fine, i'm not in a rush for it, and insurance will only pay if lost, damage on a pc in transit isn't usually covered.
    Using a decent courier such as UPS or DPD, via Interparcel / parcel monkey etc should be around £15.
    It's totally your choice if you are willing to send as above, i'll take it.

    Regards
    Jamie.

    Hi

    I can collect but would be grateful for some pics showing internal and external. Also, how many HDD bays does the mobo/PSU/case combo support?

    Cheers

    There are loads of pic's available using the "Drop Box" link in the OP
    Case looks to support 5 3.5" drives natively, plus maybe 5 more with bay converters?
    Mobo supports up to 10 SATA connections ( 2 of which are SATA III )
    PSU (assuming all original cables are with it) supports 12 SATA Connections

    Jamie.

    Ironically I have a massive roll of bubble wrap I purchased from Amazon that is taking up lots of space so, that'll do nicely. Will absolutely remove the graphics card too, wrap it and wedge in the case - great idea!

    Let me look in to this and will get back to you sir.

    As per below from cabbie19, the Dropbox link should have lots of photos. The motherboard model is in my first post also which after some Google'ing should confirm some of the techie questions you have :)

    Hope that helps but, if not, please let me know.

    You know more about it than me! Thank you very much :)

    Hi

    Apologies re the request for photos - I missed the dropbox link in the OP.

    I'd be happy to meet the revised asking price and collecting subject to seeing it working. Do you have any way of sorting this given it doesn't have a boot drive/OS? Also, do you have the extra cables/connectors that came with the mobo and PSU?

    Many thanks

    No harm done :).

    No extra cables I'm afraid, literally what you see is what you get here. Unfortunately, my new PC is all SSD using M.2 NVMe, which obviously this motherboard doesn't support. Unless you're armed with a HDD for a quick plug up and boot, I don't have the means.

    Ah ok. Let me give it some thought. Could you meet up somewhere mutually convenient this week somewhere if we can sort something? I'm going to be in outer SW London.

    Cheers

    Absolutely that works fine for me. I am based in Croydon so somewhere between here and SW London would be ideal. I am available Monday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 19:00 and we could meet at a public car park of some sort.

    Duly noted mister :)

    I'm so sorry for not getting back to you yesterday - have got an ongoing family crisis.

    I should be able to meet up on Wed or Thursday. I will PM you to try to sort details.

    Thanks

    Apologies for the late response.

    I now have the weight and DIMS - could I have a post code or street name, then I can home in on shipping costs.

    Thanks.
