Hi guys,

I'm looking to price out my current tower. Can anyone give me any ideas on what it could run for? Also any ideas on roughly how old this system is?

Monitor: 22" BenQ 1920 x 1200

Motherboard: Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2 Ghz 6 core

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master V6

Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 6850 OC Edition

Ram: 4 GB DDR3-1333 Dual channel Hyper Kingston X

Hard Drives: 1) Seagate 500 gb 7200 rpm 32mb cache.
2) 64 Gb Kingston SSD Drive Sata 2 SV200

Case: Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 Aluminum case

Any help would be appreciated! I'm from Canada by the way so the prices are slightly higher here for hardware.

Thanks.

How much did you pay for it?
That, minus a decent amount, would be a good place to start.

How long ago did you purchase it?

If you are unable to answer these questions yourself, perhaps you should ask the owner?

I'd say try to get $500 for the computer and maybe $100 for the monitor.

I don't remember the exact value because all parts were upgraded at different times, but if I had to guess, about $1,100 - $1,300 over 2-3 years ago.

Yes, I also think $500 for the computer and $100 for the monitor would be a great place to start.
You might get lucky and find a computer-illiterate person who is willing to pay a bit more, but $500 for a used system would be a fair price.

As a rule, you will get more for the parts individually.
Most buyers are not looking for exactly what you have to offer.

To find out the true value, go to Ebay and look for your parts in used condition.
Then select completed auctions.
In green, you will see what that part actually sold for.
For example your 1090T sold for c $131- c $196
