  1. Rule of Thumb - Take your build cost and then subtract 10% .... then 5% for each month of age for 6 months (60% value at this point) ... then 10% for every 6 months thereafter.

    0.5 year old - 60% of build cost
    1.0 - 50%
    1.5 - 40%
    2.0 - 30%
    2.5 - 20%
    3.0 - 10%

    If a new generation series of components comes out (i.e. Z77 -> Z87 / GTX 660 -> 760) .... expect that to greatly impact sale viability of same

  5. $500 at the very most.
  6. Your pc is probably worth much less than you think.
    Few will want to buy a "K" cpu and a non-overclockable motherboard.
    Search for your pc or similar on ebay in used condition.
    Then filter on completed auctions and you will see actual selling prices in green.
    Unless you can find a private buyer, you can likely do better by separating out the parts and selling them individually.
    If your os is oem, bundle it with the motherboard.
