Just in the process of building a media server/htpc/seedbox and before I buy brand new was wondering if anyone here has any parts they want to offload?

Sort of things I am after are m-atx motherboard, cpu (something with low heat output, maybe i3?), ram, ssd (120gb would be ok) for os, 2TB hdd or larger for data storage and psu. Already got a case.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

i got the following full build without HDDs. Not parting sorry, and only pickup auckland CBD

CPU: i3 3220
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-H61M-52PV
Case: im not 100% sure, but it looks identical to Inwin BL641, version number might be slightly different but looks identical.
PSU: small 300w, probably came with the case.
Price: $150?

can also sell you some 1tb (seagate)/2tb (wd green) drives in couple of weeks when my new build is done (and once i migrate all my media to it).

Hardly used, i pretty much upgraded to a 4th gen i5 build before i used this as my media PC. Only use is to pull it out once in a blue moon to do some OS test or play around to see how to install something. So maybe single digit hours (at most, very low double digits). 

PM if interested.

I also have a few bits and bobs. A Gigabyte something or other with an i5, a couple of 2TB drives I think, and a small 60 or 120GB SSD. 16GB RAM. And an passive gpu too I think. It's currently in a Silverstone case (was my old file/media server) but I'm happy to sell the case separate. 

This is all in Wellington and if you're keen on it then let me know and I'll get the actual specs this evening when I'm home.

Bump. Got some hard drives but still looking for ram, motherboard and CPU.

Anyone have a socket 1150 CPU, m-itx motherboard or some DDR3 ram let me know. Otherwise I will be buying brand new end of the week.

Thanks for the offer but at this stage not intending on putting in a video card. But if I do I'll let you know.
