If you were to sell all of the parts individually you could expect to get $1000-1070, I would say. This isn't including windows, so I would say you could probably get anywhere from 900-1100 for it.

I'd buy it for like $1100 or so. Probably closer to $1000.

Best luck would be parting it out.

I think the reason it would be hard to sell is because of the 32gb ram. No one requires that much, so there would be no reason to pay for 60-80 dollars for ram, when you will only use about 1/4 of it.

You can sell them in pairs or something. Maybe pairs of 16GB or by the stick.

Yeah, that's probably the best choice, or try to sell one set separately from the rest of the system.

Also people with $1000 ++ money may hesitant buying second hand comp.

If u sells in parts separately it may had bigger market....

Sometimes you can get lucky on craigslist with a highend prebuilt 'custom' system.

In the same way that high end custom build companies, that sell high end assembled PC's for 3-4 grand make money, you can occasionally too, stumble upon the kid who wants bragging rights for his rig, and has money, and not the time, patience, or brain power required to build his own.

That would be lucky though, if hurting for money, would be happy with a grand, sadly, selling stuff used never gets quite what it should........

Did you price out what this would cost to build today, brand new?

Good Luck
