Hello, during the summer I plan to sell my Computer. I upgrade and built it up overtime for a year now.
I plan to sell it for a friend. I need an estimate on how much its value. Any guess guys?
Its an Alienware computer I bought for 1.6g and I upgrade almost everything.
Too expensive. I can build that with brand new parts (not the exact same parts) for around $1100, but with one difference. My build will also include a monitor.
The prices of a lot of your components have dropped drastically since you built this. For example, the E6850, the ram, and the video card have all dropped quite a bit. Also, a lot of the newer upgrades are even cheaper, like the E8400 for example.
The thing that sucks about computers is that you never get your money out of them. They become obsolete so fast its crazy. A computer I built about 6 months ago for $1400 is worth less than $1000 today. The market turns, and the prices drop that quickly!
also your items have been used..you cannot put brand new price on them. just a thought to throw in there
I've already consider that. Please add up the $ you'll see I dim it down...a little math doesn't hurt.
My most concern is people throwing comment.
Please link toward the parts you'll use if say your going to built a pc with my spec.
My computer is mint condition. No overclocking so it has much much lifespan. Still has till December for warranty if anything breaks.
DrawnbyChrist I've send you a pm. But it will be a while before I sell this rig.
You could ebay it, but be careful. Maybe set a reserve price, so some bozo doesn't get it for $400-$500. I put on ebay a nice AMD Athlon XP 2600 system with 1 gig RAM, 100 gig HD, Nvidia 6200, DVD-burner, all in a nice case with a fully legit Windows XP OS CD and key. It went for $70. $70! I would have kept it for a folding@home box if I would have known the gavel would drop at $70. Windows XP alone is worth $50-$60.
Just relax, I didn't burn down your price without giving you a very good reason. It has been mentioned before, but when you sell "used" stuff, you can't expect to get anywhere near what it sells for new. Toning the price down a tad doesn't cut it, you have to take off at least 25% and then some.
When you buy "used" stuff, you never know how hard it was ridden, and you also do not get a new warranty. I always ask myself....Am I giving enough of a discount here to entice someone to forgo all the benefits of buying it new?
I doubt you'll appreciate this, but I still hope you understand.
