How much should I sell my gaming PC for?

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium
Video Graphics: EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 570 HD

-Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
-G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) Desktop Memory
-SAMSUNG 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
-SAMSUNG CD/DVD Burner Black SATA
-OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply

Planned on selling on either craigslist or ebay, but want to know how much I could price it for. If anyone has any alternative websites that I can sell my PC at, please let me know.

Thanks for any help! :wahoo:

  1. i guess its worth whatever some one is willing to pay

    but at a rough guess you will probably get 75% or 80% of what it cost you to build it

    so if it cost you £800 for example i would guess it would ebay for about £600 to £650

    look on ebay for similar spec pcs to get a better idea as thats only my opinion

    you may make more ebaying the parts individually buts its more hassle than selling it in one go
  2. My birthday is going to come, send as a gift to me loooooooolx
    mcnumpty23 saying right, you can get 70% to 80% of the cost you buy.

    Since i am poor..How about giving me one of em.
  4. Im poor too.. Because of this. XP
  5. Try putting it up for whatever you paid for it. If it goes for that be happy. If not lower the price :) I mean people are still paying 1000$ for an Athlon II system as long it has says Dell or somesuch on it :lol:
  6. lol go on Newegg.com and search all your stuff add to wish list everything and see final cost...

    thats your best bet. if i have time later ill do it for you and post a link to the list.
  7. ^lol, he just built this a month ago and you think he doesn't know how much he spent doing it?

    It is worth whatever someone will pay. But as a start, I would ask for what it cost you to put together, and you will likely have to negotiate downward from there. If someone offers you 2/3rds of what you have spent to build it, I would take it and run.
  8. Looks a nice build too, shame you need to sell.

    Id recommend just put a "buy it now" of something similar to what all the individual components cost new, then then a reserve of say 75% of that figure, and hope for either the buy it now, or a bid of somewhere in between.
  9. add everythiing on new egg like peoople are saying then boost it up 5-10 percent profit plus add in a monitor and make a 20 more percent profit on that and there u go
  10. Thanks for all the help so far guys! The total amount of the components came to $1156.
  11. configure a simular system on ibuypower then add what u added extra with it and there u go :D but use newegg to find the rpices of the items so its simularly priced
