Decided it was finally time to begin purchasing a new PC.
It is currently housed in an NZXT Gamma case, but due to modifications to the case I'll purchase any brand new case you want and assemble it if you want the whole machine. So lets begin:

i3-2100 CPU
Biostar H61MGC Motherboard
Sapphire 6850
CX430 PSU
8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM
Asus DVD Drive
Windows 7 OEM (will ship with disc and box)
500GB Seagate Barracuda

Taking offers.

Looking to get $500 shipped. That would include me purchasing a new case and assembling. If you have a preferred case that will be purchased and the PC will be assembled and shipped. $500 would include the price of a mid range ($40 or so) case.

Since the NZXT Gamma was modded it wasn't being sold, so I'm unsure what pics you are wanting.
While I was wanting to go by offers, I'll post a estimated value price of $500 shipped. That would include the price of a brand new $40-$50 case being purchased and shipped to you.

Current parts tally up at $598 on Newegg (including the Gamma, but that will be swapped for case of similar value).
Price is negotiable of course, but I still need to iron things out on my replacement build and what-not before committing to anything here.

The only reason I don't want to part out too much is because of the W7 OEM Disc and License is tied to the Motherboard and all.
I've heard you can deactivate those, so if I could do that I would take away W7 and that would of course remove a marginal cost from this build.

Due to the OEM W7 being tied to the video card (of course), I'll gladly part that if anyone is interested.
Would ship in all original packaging. Taking offers there for the 6850 alone.

Please refer to the sticky at the top of the thread regarding WTS: posts. Here's a snippet -

For all ‘For Sale’ items, the following must be followed:

1. Personal photo of the item along with description. Photo must include ‘Tom’s Hardware, current date and your forum username. Include all items in photo, including any packaging and accessories (if possible) that are part of the final sale. (see example below) It is STRONGLY suggested to include country + state/region of residence (also city, if you wish) either in your message title and/or in the first few lines of the classified itself. Tom's is an international community, and shipment/currency conversion can pose issues for some members, and this also makes it easier to identify localized products being exchanged.

2. List asking price. If price is negotiable, please also add that the sale price can be discussed- these discussions should only take place via PM between the prospective buyer and the seller. Posts discussing price negotiations will result in these posts being removed.

Interested in the i3 processor.
PM me with a price please.
November 24, 2012 7:12:54 PM

$40 for the copy of Windows. PM me.

Replied to PMs and sent some. Original Post now updated with pictures as well.

Decided to part out instead of sell the rig as it makes more sense to transfer over the DVD Drive, RAM, OS , and PSU in this build.

So that leaves me with these parts for sale:
H61MGC Motherboard
i3-2100 CPU
Sapphire 6850 GPU
Seagate 500GB Barracuda (unsure if I want to sell that yet)

The video card has been fully disassembled and cleaned so everything from the shroud to the heatsink will look brand new and dust free. Thermal paste will be replaced with Arctic Silver and tested upon shipment. The CPU and Heatsink will go through the same process as well.

The motherboard, video card, and CPU will ship in original boxes as well.

i3 + Motherboard = $130 + Shipping
Sapphire 6850 = $90 + Shipping
500GB HDD = $45 + Shipping

$100 for a used 6850 seems high. Brand new 7770s with similar performance have recently been selling for $70 and come with free games to boot, and the higher performing 650 Ti is selling right now for $110 with Assassin's Creed 3 included.

Your other prices are good, but you may want to reconsider on the GPU. :)

While I enjoy the 7XXX series, I'm not trying to rip people off. The 7770 doesn't perform quite on par with the 6850 in most cases. Most often in benchmarks it shows it being behind by anywhere between 10%-30% or so. Here is one benchmark to illustrate my point:

The 7750 will go nose to nose with the 6850 in some games, but that is very rare and most of the time it is trailing behind.
7770 performs closer to the 6850 though.

Cheapest 7750 on Newegg right now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Just wanted to clarify that. Regardless GPU will be dropped to $90 + Shipping. The price was a little high since I wasn't in a rush to sell it just yet as I'm still awaiting on the Thermal Paste shipment. :)

So I can do $90 shipped on the 6850 Replaced thermal paste and fully cleaned it so it is in brand new condition internally. Was placed into PC to be sure everything checked out such as thermals and they did.

The i3-2100 is also $90 shipped. Will come with original box and all as well and will be fully cleaned and restored to new condition.

Seagate 500GB Barracuda drive will be formatted and shipped for $45.

I will give you $80 for the 6850 shipped.

It sounds a little too low for my tastes considering its current value on ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sapphire-Radeon-HD-6850-GPU-Vid...

Considering mine is in better condition in terms of packing and all as well. If you can give me an address via PM I could calculate postage and we can go from there as I'm not expecting the same price as ebay.
