Hello.

I'm planning to sell my pc. I'm not sure how much I should shave off the original price.

What is the best approach?

Here are my specs:
Motherboard: MSI H61M-P31 (G3)
CPU: i7 2600k
Ram: 16,0Gt Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz
GPU: 3071MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB (MSI)
Storage: 480GB KINGSTON SA400S37480G ATA Device (SATA-2 (SSD))
Storage2: 931GB Western Digital WDC WD10EZEX-00BN5A0 ATA Device (SATA
Power: Corsair vs650 watt
Case: unknown (plate destroyed because of GTX 1060 needed room.


I am planning to buy a new computer.

Head over to EBay and look up the AVERAGE prices on completed auctions for each of your components. You can try and sell the components separately for around the average selling price or you could total all the relative components, slash off around 20% and sell the entire unit.

What would be a good price for the whole pc?
I am thinking to sell it on Tori.fi
It's a place to buy and sell for Finnish people. Kinda like eBay.

What do similar systems sell for on that platform?
Not advertised...actual sold.

And then you have to factor in whatever your local shipping is.
USA, shipping a whole PC would start at $50.

$150 for the mobo, cpu, ram, psu, case, plus whatever the other parts cost used, -10 to 20%. That's in CAD, different regions will have different demands and different prices.

CPU is sold for 100€, well that's the price I bought.
I just checked and they still sell for the same price.

I also made the pricing today it came up to 340€ (before I even post this original post.
Here is my made-up listing
CPU: 100€
GPU: 110€
motherboard: 30€
ram: 35€
storage SSD: 20€
storage HDD: 15€
case= 5€
power 650: 25€

Pc = 350€ Buyer comes to pick it up or if he lives close to I can deliver by myself.
of course, this is wrong because I made it today before even asking.

The CPU as an individual part might sell for that. Maybe, to the right buyer.
The GPU will sell for that number.

That PC as a whole unit will not add up to that total.
350€ would buy all new parts that will crush that thing.

If you part it out completely, you'll be left holding stuff that won't sell.
HDD, SSD, PSU, case...

example mother buys pc to his son
and what about the ram?

Yeah, but...
As said in the first reply...$150.

And the mother buying a system for the son?
They will then have to manage a Windows install and license. Unless you're including a valid OS as well.


That system is old enough to be useful only to someone who wants a collection of parts.
