Yup. My biggest issue is people seriously just want too much money and will not budge even if the item has been listed for months. Nobody wants trades either. It's retarded.
But when it comes to buying things from you they want to cut you in half.

All I have available is my backup system, which isn't even a full system.

You most likely won't like the price. It's a Core i5 750 with 16GB of RAM and a Gigabyte P55 board. 16GB of RAM is still rather pricey.

well damn. The i5 would be amazing, 16 ram is great but I wouldn't ever use that much. i don't tend to multitask to that level. I might as well just ask how much for the i5/p55 board so maybe I have something to save towards

Honestly you would be better off buying a 965 new off Newegg and an AM3+ board so you can upgrade to a Vishera FX later. Reason being, socket 1156 is dead and even though the i5 750 is a great and fully capable chip for todays tasks I want too much for it as it is my backup rig in case anything happens to this one.

Okay, it's this monitor

Compaq Presario Q2009 20-inch LCD Monitor | Overstock.com

He wants 40 and doesn't have a dvi cable only power cable.

Get it?
