It's not that disagreeable an opinion. Sometimes it will be more true than at other times. When something disruptive has come along in the meantime there will be bigger drops than when it's stable. Right now even the most basic Ryzen 3000's are 6core 12 thread, so the CPU is suddenly revalued, HDD's are worthless, the 1060 is replaced by the 1660 so needs a massive discount.
This is true, even on pc partpicker site it showed a new value of the parts as low as $800 in October alone, and back up to $1200 new.

Basically, and oh boy this will start fireworks of opinions, for the first year of owning, pc loses 50 percent of it's value and 20 percent per year after that. Having said that asking more than that for it never hurts because there is always someone out there who may pay more, or looking for the exact set up as yours and pay your asking price.

The question needs to be asked why are you selling it?

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.

As a practical matter, try to sell locally.
Cases are heavy and shipping can be expensive
