It's possible to grab a bargain when it comes to refurbished or second-hand PC components, but, like buying anything used, you'll want to know some of the negatives when it comes to pre-owned items, especially PC components and parts.

One should never feel cheap when looking at second-hand equipment for their PC either. That GPU you're getting for less could simply be a throwaway due to the previous owner forking out for an upgrade. It makes no sense for the old unit to be discarded, so if it's an improvement in your system, why not take advantage

The warranty of a particular product is usually tied to the original owner through proof of purchase, so be sure to check the overall condition of whatever you're purchasing from someone and take note of any defects. Purchasing second-hand from a retailer tends to be accompanied by a limited warranty on the item, however. That said, it can prove challenging to examine the condition of a part, the CPU, for example, without having advanced technical knowledge. Refurbished-by-the-manufacturer products usually have their own warranties from the point of purchase, though they're often shorter than a brand-new purchase's warranty.

While used components can be a good catch, there are certain components that should always be purchased new. Namely the motherboard, power supply, and hard drives (including SSDs). These parts, in particular, are super-important, especially the motherboard. In my opinion, it's just not worth the risk to go for a second-hand PSU or any storage drive you'll be using daily. Hard disk drives suffer from mechanical wear-and-tear, so to get the maximum lifespan out of one, you should always get it new.

Depending on what you want to do with your computer (games vs spreadsheets), how much processing power will be necessary What sort of graphics card does it have These questions should be answered before investing in any newer machine because this can sometimes mean the difference between getting cheap RAM instead of better RAM for your new computer.

A capital allowance or deduction lets you write off the cost of an asset over a period of time. So for example, if you buy furniture or equipment for your office like desks or computers, you can claim these as capital allowances. If you can't provide the original market value of the equipment or furniture, then you can use the current market value.

You should always keep a record of the cost in case Revenue comes knocking with an audit, for example if you buy a secondhand computer off a site like DoneDeal and don't get a receipt, then you should take a screenshot of the ad in case Revenue ask for evidence of it.

It all boils down to which kinds of threats you want to migitate against - a determined attacker has many more options of leaving malware on your computer than just your hard drive, but it's getting increasingly complex to do so. If you're a rocket scientist working on the newest version of ICBMs you have more to fear than a college student who uses their computer for a few class assignments and some of the newest games (but in the rocket scientist's case, you won't be allowed to use self-bought used computers anyway).
