I found a 4790k on craigslist in my country for 260euro (for reference, from a certified shop, 4690k comes at the same price of 260 euros)
Says it's new and wasnt taken out of package.
Should i go for it? I plan on building gaming rig, i know a 4960k would be plenty, but for the same price, why not go for 4790k?
If you agree, what should i look for and inspect when buying a CPU from craigslist?
isn't it like impossible with careful crafting and good tools to open the package, replace the cpu with something similar, but different and then seal the package and pretend it was never opened?
thats what i am scared of
no the CPU is visible from a window on the box.
