CPU: Intel i5-760
Cooling: Corsair H70 (recently re-applied thermal with MX-4)
GPU: EVGA GTX 570 (Lifetime warranty edition)
HDD: Western Digital 500GB Caviar Black
RAM: 4x4GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600MHz 9-9-9-24
PSU: Corsair AX850 Professional Series (850W)
OD: Sony Optiarc DVD Burner
Mobo: EVGA P55 Classified 200
Case: Corsair 600T

Including it with fresh install of Windows 7, but no keyboard/mouse/monitor/etc. Been trying to sell it for $1000 but not getting any bites and thought I'd get a second opinion here on what I should be selling it for. I've recently cleaned out the whole case of dust and grime so it's all in good condition. I've had this for about a year and a half so it's not that old. Thanks for the advice!

(Note: This is NOT a sale, this is just asking for advice on what price to sell this custom build of mine at. Thank you!)

Add the parts new and subtract 30% for being used and another 10-15% for being last generation. I would guess it would sell for around $400. You might get more but you might wait a few months before you find someone willing to pay more too. There is a very small market for used computers in my experience. You have to find someone willing to settle for specs you wanted.

Well this is disappointing... Looks like I'll be better off keeping this rig for a while longer than trying to sell it at a price like that. Using anort3's calculations I get about $630 (original price of all parts put together is $1145) when I paid at least $1200 on this thing.

Thanks for the help guys!

You can also easily get 4Ghz out of that CPU. With overclocking and adding a second GPU ( not that a single 570 is bad ) or upgrading to a 670 and you will see that computer still be decent for gaming for a few more years at least.

computers are like cars. as soon as you open the box (drive it out of the show room) start crossing zero's off the price tag as to what it's now worth.

I would say somewhere between $400 and $600 would be about the mark.

Remember what you paid for it means nothing, its what you can purchase today that is equal or better. thats the price you work from then deduct ~30 percent for being 2nd hand.

But you can improve it a little bit, throw a second GTX 570 and you will be ok for a long time


Do you think the AX850 will be enough for two 570's and having the CPU overclocked to 4GHz?
