    workstation build, with older hardware?

    I've got a 2nd gen i7 extreme cpu. have older, still solid supporting hardware except motherboard ($175 with shipping) and box. would it be worth the cost and time to build?

    What do you plan on using the workstation for? those are still 4 core correct? the price of the motherboard at 175 is a bit much in my eyes. My girlfriend does ebay for a living and I built her a sweet ryzen 3 build and for the components, cpu was i think 90$ and strix mobo was 100. Only thing about the new ryzen is the ram is stupid expensive. If you don't do many demanding tasks like rendering, or hardcore gaming, that will work perfectly fine for daily activities. I used an old AMD 880k 4 core 4.0ghz and it still works great to this day. open photoshop and dreamweaver with a few other things like discord and youtube then I get hiccups.

    personally i'd rock it, and if your not on a SSD, snag one, don't look back.

    it is, if you go 3rd party. i bought the cpu in a build with the original, basic Intel motherboard. they made one other that was a significant upgrade. this is the OEM upgraded one.
