Wanted – 13″ Macbook Pro 2018 with at least 1tb SSD

As per subject, looking for a 13″ Macbook Pro with at least 1tb SSD to upgrade to from my current model.

Spec of my current model:
Retina 13″ Early 2015
2.7ghz i5
8gb 1867MHz DDR3
1tb SSD (can be upgraded)
Performance benchmarks of 723 single core and 1551 multicore
Cycle count: 572
Battery condition: “Good”
State of health: 84.4%
Case in very good condition with no dings or scratches, but some minor ‘screengate’ marks from keys visible when screen is off.

Based on performance benchmarks, I don’t believe 2016 or 2017 models are enough of an upgrade, while prices of 2019 or 2020 models appear out of my reach.

What have you got?

For Sale – Full gaming PC – GTX1070

I was going to upgrade my PC this week when I ended up ordering parts for an entirely new build, hence I’m looking to sell my old one. It was built by myself and upgraded over a number of years and has been rock solid throughout. I know there isn’t always a lot of interest in full systems but I would like to sell it all in one go if at all possible, I wasn’t really sure what to ask for it so I’ve just added up a rough price for each component which was about £450 but feel free to make a reasonable offer! Price would be for collection only as I’m not looking to post it for obvious reasons.

Specs are:

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX case
Asus P8Z77-M Pro
Intel i5 2500k (has been OC’d to 4Ghz)
Corsair H60
8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 RAM
Palit GTX 1070
512GB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD
1TB Samsung HDD
Corsair HX650
Windows 10

All parts were purchased brand new, I’m pretty sure I still have the original boxes for everything as well.

Monitor has no dead pixels, minimal backlight bleed, is fully g-sync compatible.
It has one small nic on the bottom bezel of the screen, a photograph has been taken to show this.

I would prefer this one to be collection, but can be sent by post as I still have original packaging. Insurance will be an issue, since most commercial couriers do not insure against damage to screens. If it is sent by post, I will not be liable for any damage caused by couriers.

Silverstone Headphone Stand Black £45.00 £40.00

For Sale – EVGA GTX 1080 SC

Hi all, on behalf of a friend, I am selling some components from his old PC after an upgrade. These parts have all been tested by myself and it has all checked out well with no issues found. These are all parts from a Chillblast pre built (sorry lol) as he doesn’t feel comfortable building his own, so the Motherboard splash screen is a Chillblast splash screen, I could probably change this, but I have no real reason to do so as it works fine as is and I don’t want to mess anything up. The comonents and prices are as follows;

Intel Core i7 6700k CPU – £SOLD (I will do my best to clear the thermal paste from around the edges of the CPU, Chillblast were pretty generous)
Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI Motherboard with IO Shield – £SOLD
2 x 8GB Goldkey 2133Mhz DDR4 Ram – £SOLD
EVGA GTX 1080 SC (There is a small, lets say dint on the GPU back plate, was there when removed from the PC so my assumption is there was a minor mishap during the build, doesn’t effect use in any way) – £300 (warranty for 106 days checked on 05/06/2020)
Integral M Series 256GB NVMe SSD (M.2 2280) Brand New – £SOLD
Corsair CX750 80+ Bronze PSU (Non Modular) – £SOLD
Noctua NH-D15 Air Cooler (Intel attachments only due to being a pre built) – £SOLD

All prices are negotiable and include the cost of shipping (I’m dreading the PSU and that behemoth of a cooler ). Please do note, that I have none of the original boxes, but each item will arrive in some form of box with adequate packaging (this will likely be old component boxes of mine, so nothing will be packaged badly).

I would like to see this go as a bundle and will be shipped via DPD insured delivery and packaged as boxes within a box for the maximum protection fo the components I can get should it go all together.

This would make an ideal PC for those looking to get in to PC gaming at just about any resolution (pretty sure the 1080 can handle 4k with some reduced settings on a good majority of games).

I do have a boxed 1080p AOC IPS 21.5 inch monitor (I2267FWH) I can include in the sale, brilliant condition other than a small white dot on the screen, the screen still works great, it just has a white dot at the top of the display, some people wont mind it, otherwise will be driven crazy by it. Pictures will be uploaded of this later when I get it out. I was after £40 on this due to the screen issue, but I’m again, open to offers.

Sorry for the lengthy post, and if you have any questions please do ask.

Payment would have to be via Bank Transfer please.

For Sale – Entry level upgradable gaming PC – GTX670, i3 3225, 8GB, 128SSD&320HHD – £200 delivered

Hi, selling my daughters PC after she’s had an upgrade (well technically my eldest son upgraded, sold his old one to my younger son and the ripple effect is she’s got this to sell!). Condition is a bit tatty (pictures in link below), has side window with blue LED lighting everything up. Also comes with CD ROM and ye olde floppy disk (which is not plugged in – more being used as a blanking plate lol). She mainly used it for Fortnite, Minecraft, SIMS4, Overwatch and CSGO…never had any issues…this is a great entry gaming machine and is easily upgradable to the amazing i5 2500K and something like a GTX 970/1060 which would be good level and get you into VR.

So specs are:

GTX670 GPU Gigabyte OC Edition
i3 3225 CPU Stock h/s & fan
Asus P8H61-M socket 1155 Motherboard
8GB RAM Corsair 2x4GB 1600Mhz DDR3
128 SSD Samsung
320 HHD WD Scorpio Blue
500W PSU OCZ

Anyway, really not sure on value – was thinking £200 inc. based on a basic value of each part if I sold seperately.

Wanted – Ryzen Setup (CPU / MB / RAM) & NVIDIA GPU

Hi all,

My 3570k is getting a bit long in the tooth – time to look for an upgrade. Looking for a Ryzen CPU, Motherboard and RAM combo.

Also looking for a decent nVidia GPU – something better than an RX 470. As much as I love the card (and AMD cards overall) – the issues with drivers and getting ReLive to work reliably are a deal breaker for me and they’re driving me nuts – never had any issues with ShadowPlay so looking to go back to the green side. Don’t mind a few gens old.

Basically all I do these days is play Modern Warfare anyhow! Would like something to be able to run it on Medium or above at 70FPS+.

Not looking to spend the world, but offer up and let me know what you have.

Thank you!
