God Bless eBay!





Several people have asked what’s up with me selling so much stuff on the LK eBay Blowout Sale post. Do I owe the I.R.S.?? Am I going bankrupt?? Thankfully, no (knock on wood). It was a fundraiser for my new PC build!

When I decided it was finally time to upgrade from my old dinosaur Pentium 4, I made a commitment to not touch my checking account and raise the money by getting rid of some old junk that’s been sitting in boxes/bins for years and was starting to seriously clutter my basement. Using eBay, about a month and a half later here we are.


Mobo

CPU
Video
RAM
Disc
Asus Sabertooth z77
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB
WD Caviar Black 3TB
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
Cooler Master HAF X RC-942
CORSAIR Professional Series HX850
Intel Quad-Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 1600mhz
LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R Blu-Ray Burner


Not a bad rig considering it technically didn’t cost me anything. No busted bank account. No spouse backlash. Plus, I had a blast putting it all together. Satisfaction is in the air.

It’ll be nice editing video with this badboy. Making the jump from a Pentium 4, I can’t even imagine how much this will reduce post-production time.

A huge thank you to EVERYONE who participated in the eBay campaign and made it such a success. I hope you’re enjoying your new stuff.

Those of you asking for new vids, you’ll be hearing from me soon! :)

Have a great day, peeps!

    This is on of the best ideas I’ve seen in a while. I need to go through my old junk and see if I can do something like this.
