I found a used Antec server case and 650W PSU for $60 on Craigslist. I think they will work for the new system I'm building, but I'd feel better knowing that I can resell them for at least what I paid if they don't work out.

Case: Antec SX1040BII Black Performance Series II SOHO File Server Case - as seen here
PSU: Antec TP3-650 Rev. A2 TruePower Trio 650W PSU - as seen here


How much do you think I could sell these components for in case they don't work for me? They are used but appear to be in good condition.

Thanks all.

That's a good point, but I know that stuff on Craigslist can be overpriced sometimes.

I'm also curious to know what the components are worth individually, in case I keep one and sell the other.

Once the computer case looks good and nothing is missing, getting back the $60 or $50 back for everything should not be hard, especially on craigslist.

Update: I bought the combo - the owner had obviously taken care of it well. Only signs of use were 1 missing optical drive cover and no hard drive rails (for quick replacement of HDDs - no big deal to me). He threw in several aftermarket case fans and some adapter cables. Reason for selling was because he just got a nice new Antec 1200.

Do you think I could replace the HDD rails somehow? I think that's the only factor that could affect resale value if I wanted to sell down the road.

P.S. I'll definitely keep the PSU and probably the case. The case looks good but it's massive - the Antec 300 might be more my speed. I'm wondering if I could get like $40-50 just for the case, which would mean pretty much free PSU...

I believe that I have the same case and if you are talking about the metal cage that the hard drives screw into is missing, then that would be a hard sell.

How are you going to mount your hard drives in the case without the rails/cage?

In your OP, both links point to the same PSU web site and not the case in question.

Oops, sorry about the link mixup.

The cages are not missing - the HDD's can still be screwed in. It just didn't come with the quick-mount rails.
