Provide any additional details you wish below.

So basically after toying around with PC Part Picker and Logical Increments, I came up with Option 1: higher end, more costly, overall just a little more across the board. A colleague gave his input and provided me with Option 2: still good gear, lower cost, but the Hard Drive and Video Card are items he'd sell to me for the prices listed. I know him well enough to know they're in good condition and he wouldn't try to pull a fast one on me, but a part of my brain still hates the idea that I'd have second hand gear when I'm going to be spending some serious money on a computer.

So the question is...

Is the extra money actually worth it? Should I do a hybrid and just take him up on the used gear but incorporate it into the other stuff I've picked up? Will I really notice a difference between the way the system would handle? And most importantly, is it likely that either of these will be "outdated" in the next 3 years?

A few notes: I have everything going off of amazon because, truth be told, that's where I'll probably order most if not all of it from simply because I know/trust/use amazon more than anything else. Also the monitor listed is simply to match one of the monitors I already have. If there is any objection to the monitor itself, I'd love to hear it but I've been very happy with it.

Thanks for the advice.

NOTE: You do not have to follow this format, but please be sure to answer these questions. Please do not ask to simply be given a build. You are welcome to delete this section.
