Hi everybody. I could not find anything in the rules that prohibits me from posting this here so here you go. I am looking to sell my desktop computer sometime in the near future. I've got a baby coming in October (its the size of an Avocado right now,lol) so i can use a smaller laptop that doesn't require a desk and stuff. I need your opinion on how much my system should go for. Thank you!

AT A GLANCE: Phenom II X4 965BE, AsRock 890FX DELUXE3 AM3, G.SKILL RipJaws 2X2GB PC3 12800, XFX HD 5850 1GBDDR5, Corsair 750W PSU, Samsung spinpoint F3 1TB, HP 24X Sata-burner/Lightscribe, Corsair H50 hydro cpu cooler, MS Windows 7 pro 64-bit.

I also have in it an OCZ SSD Vertex 2 60GB Sata II that i might keep for my laptop. And a 23" LCD.





I played Crysis on it at max all settings with no problem. When it will be sold i will perform a clean OS install but i will not update to OS service pack 1 or any drivers. Unless you want to use your own HDD in which case no HDD or SSD will be included.

Thank you for any help/responses!

I would add up your receipts, and knock off about one third of what you paid for all the parts originally. You'll be lucky to get that for it. Consider a smaller desk instead of taking a loss.

id give you like 300$ for it.

Parts add up to about $450 for me (valued at ~75% of current prices). I'm not including Windows, but I guess if it's locked to the motherboard you can get $35 for it or so.

You can try talking to this guy that wants a $400 gaming machine:
