Hey there :) I'm in the middle of building a new gaming rig and still haven't found a CPU at a price I don't cringe at (looking for 7th/8th gen i5 or i7). Is it worth risking buying used for a better price? I'm going to a CeX near me and looking for any other hardware shops in Manchester this weekend to see if I can find anything. Should I have a poke around eBay as well? I've not really used it other than for little things so not sure I trust it yet. Would you risk it?
