Was This A Good Buy???

I recently purchased a GTX 660, SABERTOOTH FX990 Mobo and a AMD FX 8320 8 CORE also 8 gigs of ram all for $240. What are your thoughts on this buy?

If it came with a legit OS, yes.

While I don't care for that setup due to having worked too many BSODs it's a good deal if it works and has a legit OS.

Fit the machine with a quality 600w single rail psu.

Because the parts are used spend 5/6 bucks on some thermal paste and give everything a good cleaning and re-do the thermal paste.....cpu/gpu.
