I've recently built my computer just before X-mas .. and now I'm finding myself in need of cash so I've decided to sell my pc.

I'm asking what you guys think I could get for it.

Specs :

AMD Athlon II X4 640 3.0ghz proccessor (am3)
4Gigs DDr3 Patriot ram 1333
XFX 5770 1GB GDDR5
Asus M4A88T-M Motherboard
500gb Seagate Barracuda
600 Watt PSU Coolermaster
310 Elite Case Coolermaster

The monitor is a dell 19' 1440x900

Never been OC'd have all the boxes for all the items.

Just tell me what you think I could get thanks!

$350-$400 if you are lucky. Realistically $300-350. Not a bad computer but not really powerful either. My opinion anyway. You could build it new for close to $500 even with a 1440 x 900 monitor.

Some where in the $300 range. When you start going above that, people start looking at building it themselves. Obviously not everyone, just generally speaking.


You could probably get more by selling the monitor separately also.

I could get maybe 500 for it. I don't think it's stupid people who would buy it but remember not everyone can build a computer..

@joel: $500 would actually be reasonable. You gotta realize, your labor of assembling this thing counts for something. Lot of name brand computers start at $600 or even more just to have a low end dedicated graphics card in them. Not everyone can build a computer. Now can't be any more than $500 I don't think, mainly because this desktop won't have a warranty like a name brand assembly.

I think anybody from 10+ who is not disabled can learn to build a computer in a week

Proving exactly why your labor is partially a factor. Some people either don't want to bother learning, don't have time or patience to learn, don't want to take the time assembling it, or worse, find getting the hang of actually using a computer a headache enough.

The amount of savings over time is worth it though

^Depends on the value of your time; also, it's not just the initial build, the support is most of the value for people who buy from Dell et al.
