Hi Guys - First time poster here.

I'm considering selling my other desktop and was curious as to what I could potentially ask for? Put together new today would be ~$1,400 on PCPartPicker. Complete list below, would love your guys thoughts:

Thanks!

I'd say about 1000 CAD, right off the top of my head. That's 765 USD. Maybe a little bit of a low ball, but it is a 3 year old used system. It only has 480 GB SATA SSD that is made by an off brand company. The RAM is really strong, inpractically high(other than for workstation). GPU is on point, CPU will be outclassed by the Ryzen 3 3300X. Cooler, PSU are meh. Motherboard isn't as valuable anymore imo. So 800 USD is what I'd consider a worthwhile deal. Ofc if you have a nice case, you could just tell some not too knowledgeable folk about how it's an i5 xxxxK and that it will overclock to X Ghz and that you configured all of that for him already and that there's 32GB of 3200Mhz RAM, a decent CPU cooler and the real gem, a 2060 Super.

Could reasonably get it sold for 900 USD in my opinion.

Better CPU, better motherboard imo, same RAM, better SSD, better GPU(I think), nice case, same PSU. This costs less than 1200 and is undeniably better than your build, but new. Ofc there are taxes, but no shipping. So 1000 USD will be your upper ceiling, anything higher is nothing but a scam. Even 1000 USD is starting to be unfair
