I posted this in Homebuilt before discovering this forum. I am looking to get a feel for what my system might be worth in the secondary market and would be interested in selling if the price was right. I built the computer in March of 2009 and it has been completely problem free since then. The only upgrades/changes were a replaced fan in the CM V8, and new RAM. Specs below:
CM 690 case
Asus P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard
i7 920 @ 3.8ghz (OC'ed since I built it with no stability issues)
Coolermaster V8 HSF
EVGA GTX 295 with optional backplate (stock clocks)
G.Skill Ripjaws 12gb (3x4gb) 1600 tweaked to 8/8/8/21
Corsair 750w PSU (non-modular)
WD caviar black 640gb HDD
I would appreciate any input/offers/thoughts on the value of this setup. Thank you.
= $310? Still loooking for a working used PSU of good quality and the build wll be done!
Im guessing total build cost for gas money aswell to be around $400.
However I am expecting to sell this unit for $700 swapping out the video card for a 660ti 2GB I bought for $200. Bringing total cost around $610. Aso gonna put 12GB ram in it just waiting to RMA it.
Also that setup can handle a better GPU/newer GPU... x58 isnt dead yet but I would imagine with Intels next Gen. CPU's x58 wont keep up anymore. If you wanna sell I would say sell ASAP as I see a value drop coming in the near futre. the 950 goes for $100+ all day on ebay...and most quality x58 motherboard goes for $130+ on ebay all day...
Thanks for the input. I'm thinking if I decide to keep it that I'll add a decent SSD and call it for another year or 2. I would want to start fresh I think since I'm not in love with the case or the cable management on the non-modular PSU. The 295 is still really strong at 1900x1200 (even after adding another 1900x1200 recently). It doesn't seem like there are many good values in terms of a GPU upgrade when compared to the 295 unless I had some pressing need for DX11.
