Ok, I built a dream pc about 5 months ago. It is a beast, but It's extremely heavy, big, and a bit overkill for me. So I'm thinking about selling it and building a new rig that is almost as powerful, but lighter, smaller, and not water-cooled.
1. How much do you think I could sell this for? Retail prices as of this post add up to $3181.65. Could I get at least $2500 for it?
2. How would I go about shipping this thing? I've never shipped a full rig, let alone a massive one like this. I'd obviously drain the liquid, but I still wouldn't trust ups to ship this thing without it breaking. Should I just try and sell locally? Or should I part it out?
I wanna say something to overkill systems :
An overkilll powerfull system tends to live longer than relatively normal/mid-classed systems. It is expensive but you won't need to upgrade anything for a longer time.
It might be an overkill now but I can guarantee, it won't be an overkill 3 years from now (or perhaps sooner).
Selling the rig just because you think it is just an overkill, will make you loose lots of money, and it won't give you any benefits.
for USD3200, you will loose perhaps about USD1000.
That is already a considerable amount of loses.
You might just wanna enjoy your current rig.
The lesson to this is :
Next time you wanna buy something, think about it carefully.
but an overkill system is not worth it you can buy a system for say $1200 now and it will play most games at full graphics or you could get a beast for $4000, now think about it in 2 or 3 years time you could afford another $1200 system and it would probably be better than the old overkill pc
