    I'm trying to build two computers for my nephews so they can game with my kid. They are new to gaming and have been asking for a computer for a while so I'm trying to build them one for each.

    I got an i5 free (donated with ram) so I need an 1155 motherboard now - Found Locally

    I have a Lenovo desktop that all it needs is a 4th gen i5 so if you got a cheap i5 (probably non K) since I don't have that much spare money.

    PM me what you got and price.

    I do have this guy, it's not a 2500k but it performs almost like one

    Specs
    I5-3570 Non K with intel stock HSF
    MSI B75ma-e33 with backplate
    8 gig DDR3
    Windows 10 key attached

    If you can do $150+shipping I"m also willing to throw in the 256 gig ssd I have on the system that will have a legit clean windows 10 install.

    The only 4th gen chips I have are i7's sorry.

    Thanks guys, keeping your offers in mind.

    By the way I mainly went with 2500k combo due to the performance and the price. Seems people sell those combos fairly cheap in here.

    I have a i5 2400k with an asrock sabertooth z77 with 16GB of ram. One of the pins is broken on the HD audio header but the rest is fine. To be honest I was gonna build it for funzies but I dont need it. I just need to recoup the cost of the ram just bought so its be like 80+ sshipping. Its really the ram which cost me $60. DDR3 is difficult to find cheap. Thats your only issue.

    Seems like LGA 1155 boards are hard to find.
