  1. Parts itself: $75 max
    System: $150, $250 MAX...Your system is used
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.660875
    You can buy a DIY kit at newegg for 300, and the CPU is better...and it's new
  2. asking an educated friend he told me 180 dollars firm, what do you mean between parts and system?
  3. Your thread name: "Need help determining value of used parts to sell..."
    and you didn't post the other specs so I thought you would be selling only the CPU, RAM and MoBo

    OK, go to fleabay click advanced to the right of the search type in your parts and click completed listings:
    The E8400 about: $100
    The Mobo about: $50
    The Memory about: $50

    So about $200. If you subtract the 10% to sell on fleabay then yes, $180 is right on the money!

    I am only selling those things, considering the the price of an e8400 new is still 190 dollars i think 75 dollars for the entire thing is too low. If I cut all the prices in half from their retail prices I would get around 250 dollars. So If then lower that by a 3rd i get around 160-180 dollars.
  8. I had an E8400 w/Xigamatek, overclocked to 3.6 Ghz, Asus P5Q-E MB, 4GB 800Mhz CL4 RAM, an Older Caviar Blue HDD, and the board was tied to an OEM copy of Win 7.

    I added some cheap but good parts...
    TT case
    Antec PSU
    Asus optical
    Radeon 5450

    And sold it all for $400. Then I made a bit more because of extensive setup on-site.

    So I made somewhere around $250 on my similar parts but with an OS, so that 180 figure seems good to me.

    I prefer that method so that I can make sure the person that gets the parts is happy.
  9. yeah that's tricky I really don't want to sell then have it go over poorly with a new owner,. But at the same I don't want to deal with helping them set it up too much. Unless they requested. I'd like to just sell it and leave it at that. I've tested it for stability over and over again so if it were to break with a new owner I would not feel entitled to give them their money back.
