to be honest............ being used, they are too in line with newer products that can be purchased today. sometimes you can do better for cheaper.

if you're serious, lower the prices to move the stuff and suck it up. otherwise run the machine into the ground. like a car, you never get your money back.

Sorry to disappoint your expectations, but you could probably sell that for half those prices. At the current prices, they are very close to new retail prices. You can sell used custom PCs for around 50-65% retail price usually. Sorry to bust your chops : /

No I appreciate the feedback, most of those things are 40-50% of new prices. Aside from the Phenom 1100t and RAM only because some are still willing to pay premium pricing for the top Phenom II. I'd be happy to take a bit less for everything, I guess it was listing my initial prices and expecting some haggling, Which is likely not the best route to take on this site.

So thank you, I'll keep that in consideration when I go to sell.

The CPU prices are about in line with ebay sales these days, the GPU is overpriced (some 7950's are that price new lately, i'd be looking at more like $140-150), the ram is up at new price (probably not going to sell), the rest may or may not depending on if someone is really willing to take a gamble...things like HDD's, monitors, and PSU's nobody really wants to buy used because of wear and not knowing how they were used (and subsequently how long they will last). A warranty and being able to get help from manufacturers is worth a few extra bucks to most people.
