  1. I seriously doubt you would even get your money back fully out of it. Anything that is used even slightly devalues it.
  2. Since you have not listed every item brand, model number, age and condition it is very hard to figure what you have. However a general rule I figure to resell a brand new system just bought say with in 30 days, it would be worth no more than 75% of what was paid for it. I would never pay more than 40%-60% of the original cost of the parts for used. If it was branded (ie. HP, Dell, etc.) maybe even less as most box units are old before you get them. Systems from builders like Origin or I Buy Power have more value.
  3. 900$ of brand new
  4. amd fx-8150
    1.5tb sata III 7200rpm
    120gb ocz vertex
    6970 msi i belive
    cm storm scout
    thermal take v10 cpu cooler
    built from origen
    asus evo am3 mobo
    8gb 1600mhz ram
  5. what can i ask for it used
  6. anyone
  7. I would buy it for $400 :P Depends how much its benn used. Also, is your stuff still on the HDD?

    Max $650.
  8. For starters most people who know about pcs generally do not like the new amd bulldozer chips as even the older phenom II chips out perform them. And that will hurt the price considerably. Unless you can find some one who doesn't know alot about them to sell it to i think you'd have to take a huge hit in its value to get some one even interested to be honest.
  9. You can build a Pentium G680 Sandy-B build for $600-$850. Why go for FX when a Pentium outperforms it?

    considering that even though that bare bones kit (that you called terrible btw) is a better cpu and is only 429.99 i doubt you'd find many buyers willing to shell out much money for it. Unless like i said you find some one that knows little about cpus.
  11. Based on your $1000 base price I think it is worth about $600-$700 to the right person. Probably less. It does not have the most desirable components and it is used. Sadly if you wait to sell it for another few months, it will be worth less and newer products come to market. Used systems like this are just not worth the trouble. The buyer will also be faced with having to transfer validations, registrations, user accounts and more to make it their own.
  12. it is terrible :P

    it is terrible :P

    Not when you consider that newegg is sold out at the moment of i5 2500k's :P (also on a side note you should add a few amd build options in your build guide for amd fans) I like that option though if i had the money i'd pounce on it lol i could have a great pc to use while i save up to upgrade to a better motherboard psu video card and alot of ram. Its light years above my current set up of an athlon x2 4400+ using on board geforce 6100 on board graphics.
  14. I'm not going to add any AMD builds that are sub-$600 because of the suprisingly good performance of the Pentium G680 ( beats all FX CPUs at stock!). YOu can get 2500ks at Microcenter or TigerDirect :P
  15. I meant to say no amd builds above 600, not no amd sub- 600.
  16. lol microcenters are nice if you live near one and a few amd phenom gaming builds wouldn't hurt for low budget gamers (you won't get the best possible performance but they aren't to shabby) and most amd phenom builds would come in under the 800.00 mark with a good monitor graphics card os and mouse and keyboard. Sorry for going way off topic >_<
  17. lol PEntium eats Phenom for breakfast :P

    really, but how??
  19. take a look,,3120-3.html

    Pentium is .2 FPS off the high-end Phenom and it's only $80
  20. Rofl I can't knock my current system while its 6 years old i haven't found a game yet i can't play lol although i'd probably have a much better and easier time with a graphics card instead of my on board one. oh there is one city of heroes but thats because of my graphics card not because of my cpu. Cost wise amd is awesome but not always the best performance i'm hoping the piledriver chip gives amd fans a good alternative to intel but i'm not holding my breath after the bulldozer fiasco >_<
  21. yes, but those pentium series are latest.

    True but that is the phenom x4 not the x6 :P
  23. what's your build? YOu could put in a 6670 for like $80...
  24. biostar 6100-939 athlon 64x2 4400+ sadly my pci express is a 1.0a biostar told me a 2.1 would work nicely (i emailed them about my board) But for 6 years of being on almost 24/7 365 days i can not complain my only issue that has ever shown up is my monitor goes black for a few seconds randomly and i've deduced that it is my northbridge on my mother board getting hot and doing it at times. I'm planning on getting a new card to at the least fix my monitor going black. But gonna plan to doa new build after 6 years i feel its time lol

  26. My cash flow will only allow me maybe 100.00 a month for each component max so gonna budget it later going to get the wife a pc first so we are not sharing so much and if i do i can use my old case but i'd rather just do a whole new build from the ground up. And in my price range probably going to be an amd phenom type build. When intel launch their new line i'm hoping to maybe catch a cheap i3 or i5 but i figure motherboard and cpu will be my last purchases in my build to allow for a price drop when the new chips come out. You can bet i'll be posting around then looking for the best deals i can get lol
  27. All this is way off topic. Please start a new thread.
  28. lol chill man :P

    Check out the op's posts in other areas he was hoping to come here to offload a build pc thinking he would make money on it he has posted buying pc's as well as selling. I think he is just trying to use the forums to turn a profit. And his posts alone make me leery of him. No offence but by his posts i would think he is out to scam. An exampile? Strange new rare cpu!!! Personally i think he is more crooked then a dog wood tree but you are right we are way off topic.
  30. lol he once rick roll'd me with a thread xD
  31. Pass his id to a mod. best action
  32. In technical terms he hasn't broken any straight rules i know of. I assume that they are clear in the terms that any buying or selling is on the 2 people involved so even if he is scamming as i suspect i don't see how he'd get in trouble for it do you? Another posted topic of his that made me roll on the floor laughing Buying gaming rigs post offers buying 30!!!! /shakeshead

    And i quote

    Violations - It violates the Tom's Hardware Rules of Conduct if you engage in any of the following activity:
    Post, promote or distribute any content that is illegal.
    Promote or encourage activity which is illegal, such as hacking, cracking, scamming.

    So i guess it is in the rules but can you see any where specific that he has scammed so far? If i had i'd report it as i'm sure others would the 2 topics i posted here he has made come close but not a clear scam that i know of as of yet (no one he has scammed has came forward yet) Now back on topic

    I seriously doubt that he can get much for this rig as most of the cheaper builds far surpass it. Even being an amd fan and having the money it would cost to put together its just not viably worth it in terms of costs and performance. To get half his money back he'd have to be very lucky.
  34. man you guys are talking about me i have not done anything i do not scam
  35. also i found out the name of the cpu was a sandy bridge-e xeon i did not even sell it or anything!
  36. HAHAHA followed the other threads. Ok so here we have a guy who says he has a shop but builds and sells only as sort of a hobby but he charges people for his hobby work. He is so advanced in his abilities and knowledge that he needs public help forums to get information. Just the guy I would trust to sell or trade me anything.
  37. i have bought here alot of stuff and i have not gotten into any trouble at all
  38. lol You posted a thread with a rick roll link.. SPAMMA
