Sale Cost Of This Desktop PC

Posted 24 June 2012 - 03:54 PM

Hey guys,

I have recently finished building my 2nd computer and I want to sell my last build, which is still a great PC and works perfectly fine, and is only around 8 months old.

- Intel i3-2120 3.3Ghz
- 8GB RAM + 1TB HDD + 120Gb SSD
- DVD±RW
- Sapphire Radeon HD6850 1GB
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Any idea of a price I can sell this at? Overall, all the parts & case cost me just under £800 around 9 months ago.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

A thing is only worth what someone else will pay for it.
It doesn't matter what *you* paid for it.

Go to eBay.com and find a comparable unit and see what it sells for.

What's the motherboard in it?

If you want a baseline go recheck all the prices for the items as of right now and then knock off some for use.. there you go.

The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H Intel Z77. I only recently added the SSD and also replaced the HDD as it originally had a 2Tb one, but ive swapped that out for my new pc. I have reset Windows back to the system default state, so a new user will have to go through the setup process again.

With case and power supply and all other parts, the value of all the stuff together is still around £700. I actually managed to get the case for less than £50 before, but I cannot find it for less than £70 anywhere on the net anymore. Might try slap it up on eBay for about £900 or so, see if I get any takers.

The only problem I have had with the system is that one of the USB 3.0 hubs on the front of the PC does not work. There are a further 4 USB 3.0 on the back which all work fine however. The pin arrangement of the front USB 3.0 hub seems to be incorrect and the actual plug is warped slightly.

so your saying, with all the parts it costs 700, but you are going to sell a used system for more than you could purchase the parts for? Really, this won't sell, but if it does the poor sucker should send me some cash.

For a system as your describing with operating system I'd sell it for $500 US, you do the math.
