Hey guys, thought I'd offer this to users here first prior to listing it on trademe, 


I'm selling my old motherboard and CPU, a refurbished Gigabyte GA-H81M-S2H Micro-ATX motherboard, and a Intel Pentium G3260 dual core CPU


This has been in my main PC rig for about 12 months, and has provided nothing but the best for what I wanted it for (mainly gaming).


But alas, the new Watch Dogs 2 game requires a quad core, and right now it is cheaper for me to buy a new motherboard and CPU from AMD (AMD A8 quad core + FM2+ motherboard) then it is to upgrade my current CPU.


So I'm offering this package for $150 to geekzone people, instead of the $200 I was going to chuck it up for on trademe. Preferably I would like to swap for a decent quad core AMD CPU + Motherboard or an i5 + motherboard.


I'm not sure about postage but I am going to remove the CPU from the motherboard prior to postage, and ship them in the seperate boxes they came in (photos attached), we'll say $20 for all of NZ and I'll refund you the difference if it's less then that.


I can also chuck in some DDR3 with it for $40 extra, that is more for convenience since I am doing an upgrade and am just looking to move my old parts into a new motherboard.

UPDATE: I can't figure out how to edit the original post so i'll have to just reply to it, I will chuck in the RAM for free with the motherboard and CPU for $150, so you'll have a full system that just needs a case and PSU for $150.


Also I am a bit lenient on the price, really anything from $115-150 I would be happy with.

I'm going to leave this for a couple more days, then I'm going to put it on TradeMe for the full $150.

Currently in this machine I have 8GB in 2x 4GB sticks, and another 4GB in another PC, I was planning on including 4GB with this motherboard and CPU combo.
