Thank-you, Sick Beast!

Interesting. I might want to buy it. I will think about it and get back to you.

I think it's pretty cheap - for brand new. It's almost 25% off and buying it from a private party saves on paying taxes (another 8% in Cali - so about 1/3rd off - I am taking a substantial loss).

1800X is the equal of i7-7700K overall although it is a bit weaker for gaming. I would have kept it - but Coffee Lake just got released and one platform is plenty for reviewing video cards and games..

You're definitely charging a fair price. It's just that for me in Canada I would have to pay HST for it to clear through customs, so the total cost for me would be over $650CAD, plus the shipping cost. It's a little much. It would generate $30USD/month in mining income, so it would pay itself off in 17 months, provided that the mining holds out that long. It would also be a CPU platform that would last me for years and years in all likelihood. I'm going to think it over and let you know. This is definitely a much better deal for someone in the USA.

The other problem for me is all the other costs associated with building a new PC. I would need a case, PSU, RAM, SSD, and a GPU for it. I would probably make my current PC a dedicated mining PC. For Ryzen I would want a GTX 1080 Ti, preferably with the new faster memory. It's going to wind up costing me over $3000CAD.

I will think about it. If I can bring the overall cost of the rig down somehow I just might do it.

Good luck! I think you will find a buyer at that price, if not me. :)

I already mentioned the issues of sending things to Canada - even for a gift, they charge you import duty.

I also have 2x8GB of GSKILL DDR4 at 3000MHz that would be good for 1800X - it should clock just below it at 29xxMHz. I can make you a good deal with that. And I might even have an extra SSD.

Let's continue our discussion by email. I have to make sure that everything that I'm selling is HW that I purchased - I never sell anything that I get for review.

Indeed, thanks. :D

Guys it looks like I just bought a Ryzen 1800X CPU! Fun times! I will keep you guys updated. More mining hash rate for me. I do batch image processing also, it's going to fly on this cpu.

Thanks again apoppin. :)
