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


Built in a COOLER MASTER Storm Scout.

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:

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

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:

^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.

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.
