Appraise my computer

Element V

Oct 9, 2011

I am curious to know how much I could sell my PC for. It was built a year ago and total cost was around $3000. Here are the specs:

Operating System
MS Windows 7 64-bit SP1

Intel Core i7 930 @ 2.80GHz Bloomfield 45nm Technology

12.0 GB Triple-Channel DDR3 @ 533MHz

ASUS Rampage III Extreme

ASUS 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series

Hard Drive
1952GB (2TB) FUJITSU MARVELL Raid VD 0 SCSI Disk Device (SATA)

Optical Drives
LG bluray drive
LG standard drive

ATI High Definition Audio Device

Thermaltake Element V
5800 series what? Which model? Considering I can build a i5-2500K system which is more than 10% faster than yours for $700-ish I'd say a sensible price for yours would be ca. $600. I know, it sucks. You probably paid a lot for the i7 + mobo but nowadays it's kind of obsolete :(

BTW I'm on a i7-920 3.56 GHz :lol:


Yeah, you will need to be way more specific on the parts, 12 gig of ram but what name, speed, model? And I'm not even sure what "FUJITSU MARVELL Raid VD 0 SCSI Disk Device (SATA) " is. Guessing it's a regular 2 TB sata drive but you got SCSI in there so it kinda throws me off. Not trying to be a smartasb, just looking for current pricing on components. I have built several systems since last year and with the new tech out you really won't get much for it. Probably around $650 to $750. Less if you got to ship it. Believe me, I have dropped prices when most of the components were new. Most people won't pay for what you got invested in it.
