Selling gaming rig. Need help with pricing please

Hi Guys,

I have to part with my 1 year old gaming rig. I have run out of storage space (college payments start in a few months as well) and wanted some advice on how much I should charge. A few friends are interested in purchasing it. Here are the specs:

Antec 900 ( I repainted the internals flat black)
AMD Phenom II x3 720 (clocked at 3.2 Ghz)
Biostar 790FX micro atx motherboard
4GB (4x1GB) Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800
Corsair H50 CPU cooler (cpu never got above 23c)
HIS Radeon 4890 (stock clock)
WD 500GB 7200RPM HDD
OCZ 500 watt modular PSU
LG 22x DVD burner

I was thinking about $800. Any advice or suggestions would help.

  1. I went to Newegg.com and priced everything out to get an estimate. This is what I came up with

    Antec 900 ( I repainted the internals flat black) = $100
    AMD Phenom II x3 720 (clocked at 3.2 Ghz) = $100
    Biostar 790FX micro atx motherboard = $70
    4GB (4x1GB) Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 = $100-120
    Corsair H50 CPU cooler (cpu never got above 23c) = $80
    HIS Radeon 4890 (stock clock) = $180
    WD 500GB 7200RPM HDD = $ 55
    OCZ 500 watt modular PSU = $60
    LG 22x DVD burner = $20

    A brand new system with the same or similar components would cost $ 785.

    I have never sold a computer so I am not sure of what you should charge. However it is a used computer with parts that are being phased out, DDR2.
  2. Hello, i am looking to sell my recently built but used gaming pc. It cost about $600 to build without extras (mice, keyboards or monitors).
    My build consists of:

    Amd Athlon X4 750K processor
    Msi Motherboard
    FM2-A75MA-E35
    1 x 4gb stick of Corsair Vengeance ram
    NZXT Guardian Mid Tower Case
    EVGA GeForce GTX 650 1GB graphics card
    Corsair Power Supply CX 430 Watt
    1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue hard drive.

    I built this pc about 2 months ago, it runs games with good fps. If i am going to sell it on Ebay, roughly how much do you think i could get for this.

    Thank you in advance.
