    I have the same unit and was able to procure it for $20 CAN only thing I changed was, I upgraded the cpu to a E8400, and installed 8gb of ram, and to top it off the video card, I was able to procure a R7 240 low profile card, after all said and done. It was a great budget build pc, was able to run Need for Speed Rivals on it with a decent amount of frame rates at 1080p

    you're wrong. i've been buying these for years now and shipping WITHIN the u.s. is typically between $20-30. Nice to see others catching on to what these lil machines can do, a lot more if you know how to mod them and rid them of their proprietary constraints.

    I actually have a Dell Optiplex 740 that was given to me and was able to get an AMD radeon hd 7470 graphics card for like $6 and the PC has an AMD Athlon 64 x2 3800+ cpu with 4 gb ddr2 ram and now, it actually runs most games well made up till about 2010 to 2011. I like these pcs because they are quiet. My other main desktop is much more powerful, an i7-4770k with a gtx 1080, but its also much more louder.

    I buillt my system bit by bit sa80 tarted with a optiplex 745 which seems similar but not as good as the one in the video.
    Cpu e8400 to q6600 (ridiculous increase in gaming capability)
    Gpu: hd 6950 but upgraded to gtx 470 (50% fps increase)
    I'm using a pci-e riser but one for mining and my gpu sits beside my computer on the desk.
    I originally started by using power adapter like in the video but WARNING I would not recommend this long story short I was very lucky to not electrocute myself or set my house on fire!
    I upgraded the psu to a 750w which is overkill for the system but will allow me further upgrades or can be transferred when I upgrade the build. This however is far to big for the case so also sits on my desk beside the computer.
    The computers side panel is removed with the gpu and psu cabled into it from outside. In total I have spent around 200 but this was more due to lack of knowledge when I initially started I would love to share a picture but I am unsure how.
    Loved this video keep up the good work riley.

    hey linus,
    a year ago i found a dell optiplex 760 with intel e7500 on the garbage. after the first tests, I found that the dvi adapter card was broken and the hard drive did not work ..
    I have ordered these parts again and found that the memory has also suffered.
    I could not afford a new pc, so I ordered an Intel xeon x3220, 2 * 2gb + 2 * 4gb ddr2 ram. that works great.
    the next step was a video card and hard drive.
    i ended up with a kingston a400 - 120gb and an a400 - 480gb SSD and a gigabyte gt 1030.
    the system runs perfectly and got in unigine benchmark heaven and superposition partly better results than an i7 with geforce 970 and similar.
    I do not regret the almost 200 €.
    I can play and work with it.
    my system is:
    Dell optiplex 760 - Bios a16
    intel xeon x3220
    gigabyte geforce gt-1030 2gb-ddr5
    2 * 2gb kingston hyperx 1066mhz
    2 * 1gb kingston hyperx 800mhz
    (both run at 800mhz)
    1 * kingston a400 - 120gb
    1 * kingston a400 - 480gb / steam games)
    as an external hard disk i use a toshiba canvio basics 500gb.
    operating system is windows 10 (update 1809)
    Linus I'm just as nerd as you are, that's one of the reasons why I built the system that way.
    In 2011, I had a new PC built.
    intel i5-2500k
    gigabyte z68 per
    corsair vengeance 4 * 4gb - 1600mhz
    corsair h60
    corsair 64gb ssd
    samsung 500gb hdd
    amd radeon 6870
    but the system never worked as well as what I have now.

    and for that I spent round about 1000 €-

    I've been working with computers for a long time.
    But I was really surprised what you can get with little money in performance.
    if you feel like you can write me.
    I do not know as much as you, so at least I feel: - /
    but i would be interested to know if we could maybe do a joy adventure beyond cannad borders.

Picked it up at Free Geek Minneapolis for $108 which included a Viewsonic monitor and not so great keyboard. I thought that price was pretty crazy considering after adding a Crucial 500 gig SSD for $50, this thing is really quite speedy for general workloads. It is currently running Ubuntu 16.04 and I am going to leave it with that for the time being, because I like to torture the kids a bit...
