Hello! I am currently selling my Old Rig and I Was wondering what a good price for it would be.

The specs are:
500watt PSU
Nvidia GTX 970 4GB
Intel i5 6400 2.7 ghz
Corsair Vengeance 2x8 GB DDR4 @ 3000mhz
2TB Barracuda Drive
Cooler MasterHyper 212 Evo

I was thinking around $500 - $600

The only reason I am selling it for a little higher is because I am buying the 16 GB ddr4, the barracuda drive, the windows 10, and the new heatsink. I also went to PC Part Picker and It said it was about $500 for the entire PC. I don't know if that is true or not?

Problem is the system is used. For $650, $50-150 more than what you want to price at, you can get a brand new 1080p gaming machine that is faster that what you have for sale used.

A pc will often fetch more if it is disassembled and the parts sold individually.
That is because it is unlikely that a buyer will want exactly the same pc.
Find your parts in used condition on ebay.
Then filter on completed auctions,
In green you will see what the part actually sold for.

GTX1070 for $150 is a decent deal for a modest upgrade.

Try this test:
Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu is strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you are likely more cpu limited.

If there is one upgrade that I consider essential it is to upgrade to a ssd.
A 1tb ssd will cost you about $100.

I was selling my old computer to buy a 1070 for 150 for my own computer. I have two computers. The one i'm selling and the current one I'm using. The one I am selling is the one I asked the price about. I'm going to sell it for about $400 hopefully to buy a 1070 Dual from my friend. And use the rest of the money to get a bigger hard drive and maybe a NVME to put my Windows on
