        Hi Linus. I'm An italian it technician and ti prego prendimi con te e portami a lavorare in Australia. 500 euro al mese di stipendio mi bastano per essere felice. Yours sincerely

                                          i got a 4790k in 2014 for £250 brand new and up until 9 months ago they were selling for around £300 secondhand, they dropped down to around £200 now which is what i sold mine for last month so lost £50 in 5 years! Never seen anything like it for computer parts or anything else really, well apart from Spectrum computers that are now vintage and worth more now 2ndhand than when new!

And have 2 HDDs totalling 750gb, about to pick up a 256gb SSD for $25 locally and have a reasonable system with 1tb total storage for $125, the same cost as that cpu before the fees
