Computer's Worth

Alright I am kind-of getting an idea of doing a computer building service (and I won't be charging $150 to build a computer like some people around me...). My first "real" (as in pretty good) build is flawless and I would like to know how much it is worth. It has about 3 months of usage on it (just got a new motherboard and cpu as I wasn't happy with the previous ones so those have about 2 weeks). Specs:

CPU - I5-2500k OC to 4.3 Ghz (Hyper 212+ Cooler)
Motherboard - ASUS Z77
RAM - 8 Gig Kingston Memory (2x4 gig) OC to 1600
Video Card - GTX 570 (Factory OC)
Hard Drive - Western Digital 500 gig 7200 RPM
CD Drive - Standard
Power Supply - 600 Watt Corsair
Case - Gladiator 600
Operating System - Windows 7

On start-up idles at 32-36 and has never gotten above 65. \

Just a rough estimate on how much this would be worth. Any answers appreciated. Thanks all.

  1. Hmm I'd say around $900. That's just a rough estimate.

  2. Could you be a bit more specific?

    What Asus Z77 motherboard is installed? they vary heavily in price from $100 to $250 at least

    Which Corsair PSU? Again, the price difference is pretty big

    Which edition of Windows 7 is installed? Is it retail or OEM?
  3. Since it's used and your not very clear on specs from my guess around 700 or 800 sounds low i know but once something has been used period it drops it's value

    P8Z77-VLE is the Motherboard. (Retails for about 170).
    Don't really remember the PSU name but it was about 80.
    And it is just the Home Edition of Windows 7.

    Here's my rough estimate allowing for a small amount of depreciation in the same order that you listed your components:

    200+ 170 + 20 + 250 + 100 + 20 + 80 + 60 + 100 = $1000 on the dot

    Your strong points are in the 2500k and 570

    Given that better stuff can be had for the same price I'd bring that down to 900ish

    You could get about $850 maybe $900 depends on what model PSU and which GTX570 there not all equal is it MSI or ASUS or EVGA what also if the PSU is the CX 600 SERIES brings the value down
