Checking eBay history:

  • Board $140 cheapest sold
  • CPU $115 cheapest sold
  • RAM $107 cheapest sold (assuming we are talking about DDR4 here)
  • AIO $62 cheapest sold
That's about the same price as a new Ryzen 3 3100 with a 240mm AIO and 3200 Mhz RAM. Sure it's not Kingston RAM and not a high end motherboard. But you're still competing against Ryzen builds and the fact that all the board and CPU are unlocked. So try those prices on eBay but on this board most would be comparing to a new Ryzen build. Why compare to a Ryzen 3 3100? Because the performance is about the same now.
