Hi--
I built this computer about three days ago, meaning to sell it. It is intended for high-end gaming on ultra settings, with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit preinstalled. I live in Brooklyn, NY, so you can pick it up if you're interested. If not, the buyer will pay the shipping. Keyboard and mouse will be included in the buy. I am looking for $1,600, but the price is negotiable.

Specs:
CPU:Intel Core i5 3570k @ 3.4 GHz
CPU Cooler:Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Motherboard:Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H
Memory (RAM)Corsair Vengeance LP 2x8GB (16GB)
Storage:Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Samsung 830 Series 128GB Solid State Disk
Video Card:Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 3GB
Case:Cooler Master HAF 922
Power Supply:Corsair Enthusiast 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified
Optical Drive:Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer
Keyboard:Gigabyte Force K3 Wired Gaming Keyboard
Mouse:Logitech M500 Wired Laser Mouse

I'm not seeing $1,600 in this build. The two most expensive parts (CPU and Video Card), is roughly $600 total.

I can go for $1,450. I wouldn't be making a much of a profit, though.

welcome walter,
you might wanna read the first stickie on the for sale page. your address will attract
a lot of SPAMbots. another is that you should have a photo posted to show your
goods and proof they are in your possesion.
if you'll read some other threads selling systems, they don't sell well. most of the
enthusiasts here are builders themselves and are bargain specialists.
so a system has got to have a great getting price or it'll sit here with no askes.
another idea would be to part it out and you would get closer to your price, but
you do what you have to do.. but, i'd edit your post and remove your email addy,
before a mod, asks, does it for you or deletes your thread, because you didn't read
the policies..
good luck

at most your should be on even or losing money..
why?
new in sealed box gets the best price 90-100% return
new in box (unused) would be next 70-90%
assembled, used, powered is generally 60-75% return

most are not selling for profit.. thats a business venture and again against terms of service.
