System value- What'd my computer be worth?

September 4, 2011 at 13:58:55
Specs: Windows 7, AMD Phenom II X4 965 (3.4 MHz
Hey everyone,

I'm currently looking into buying a new PC, which means selling my old one. Therefore, I am looking for an estimated value and I figured I could give it a shot here. Help is greatly appreciated :)

So, without further ado, my system:

Case: http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/upl... Coolermaster Storm Scout
MB: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/2452... Asus M4A79XTD EVO
CPU: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/2482... AMD Phenom II X4 965
GPU: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/2618... MSI N460GTX Cyclone 768D5
Memory: 2x 2GB 800MHZ DDR2
HDD: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/2495... 1TB Caviar Greenpower
Power supply: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/2265... Fatal1ty Series 550W
CPU Cooler: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/2489... Scythe Mugen 2 Rev.

I think that'd be the most important stuff. It also has 2 DVD drives.
I think I spent about €1300 on this system, between March 2010 and March 2011.

On a sidenote; I accept offers.

As cheap as new PCs are today, used systems don't have much resale value not to mention that there is no warranty or tech support, if I buy a used system. System recovery CDs are usually not included either.

Sad to say, used-PC's devaluate faster than used cars. Unless you can find a local buyer who's somewhat desperate for what you have, expect less (sometimes far less) than half of what you've put into it, even if it's a recent machine.

Ok, thanks, although I'd still like to have a pricetag for it...
This one has the recovery CD's by the way.

Would you give any type of warranty? A brand new laptop can be bought for under $400 & a new desktop for $500, with a warranty. You will never even get $400 for you system.

Yes, unfortunately the fact that you may have good quality components in the system means very little. An average purchaser will look at what the main components are - 4Gb RAM, 1Tb drive, recent processor, and will then see that a comparable system from one of the 'box-shifters' can be bought for less than half of what you have spent on it. See HERE for example. Plus the fact that desktop systems are definitely going out of fashion except with (mainly) gamers who will want the newest & best. Anyone who is interested in what components you've used will generally be the sort of person who builds their own so won't be interested in a ready-built, second-hand system.
