    Hello,
    refurbished branded system vs used CPU + cheap mobo + RAM
    which would be a better option ?
    The refurbished mini tower systems online, with i5 3470, around 15k/- INR.
    Used stuff: according to a local shop, basically its :
    i3 3rd Gen CPU (used) + Cheap new mobo (Zebronics) + 8GB DDR3 RAM = around 9k/- INR.

    Neither.

    Athlon 200GE--4800
    asus EX A320M--5000
    8GB ddr4 3000mhz ram--5000

    Athlon is ~20% slower but you are getting latest system with 3 years warranty on processor & mobo.

    You can get a great build of second hand components, in warranty. I recently got a i7 6700k and a Gigabyte Z170 Mobo along with a Galax 1070 and 32 GB of TridentZ at almost half of the market price. Search Facebook groups for second hand buying and selling. PM me for links.
