I also replaced the two 120 mm inwin fans to some 2500 rpm cooler master blue led ones, then added two more.

This pc works very good and has no problems whatsoever. Max FPS in Resident Evil 5 Benchmark: 187fps Sorry if ive forgotten anything. Thank you for your time.

Whats wrong with it? If you want a better one it would be cheaper to add onto your build then to sell it.

Start off with an i5-3570k and asrock extreme4 upgrade. The down the road get sli 570's and you have a beast for cheaper.

I agree with camohanna.

Though probably a bit more difficult, I'd probably try just selling the core system (CPU/Motherboard/RAM). New, those three components would come to about $270. I'd probably try to sell them as a core system upgrade for about $200-$225. I think this way, you'd lose the least amount of money

Its hard to say what a used system will sell for. I would sell it piece by piece in order to get the most money out of it. One way to see what the parts go for is to check eBay. Can I ask why you are selling? Like others have said, it would not take much to make that go from a decent computer to a faster one. Although an Intel switch would be ideal, just upgrading the cpu and adding an SSD will make it perform like a whole new rig.

If you really like building them, pull this apart fully then reassemble with the new components?

I understand the sentiment, but unfortunately, you're going to be hard pressed to actually make money from custom builds unless you have a lot of generous friends or stumble across the occasional, "Oooh! SHINY!" customer.

I put together your system (minus the wireless and extra fans) for a little over $1K, new. It's used so knock off 20%. More than six months, so another 5% With the fans and wireless card, I think you could probably ask about $760.
