Nvidia GTX 1080
24GB RAM (DDR3) (DID HAVE 32 BUT 1 STICK BROKE)
1TB HDD
250gb SSD
2x ASUS 144Hz Monitor

I payed £1000 for this setup. Looking to sell it all as i have listed above. I was thinking £700-800 minimum. What do you think it is worth?

First of all, please take a look at the GPU prices. (They are very high right now).
You might strike a better deal by selling your parts individually, or at least the GPU aside from the rest of the PC.

I think you might want to stay under £500 because anyone can build a similar if not better system with £800.
Personally i dont think that's true. A Used 1080 alone is around 300 and a Used I7-4790K is around 150-200 Just those alone is pretty much 500. On top of that I'm including 2 144hz ASUS monitors Those are 180 each and if i remove say 40% of that price they are still worth 215 together. 500 would be undercutting myself a whole lot

I've had a look at a few used 1080's they go from 300-400 in £

I see what you want to say, and I agree that the price I said isn't totally fair. But computer parts don't keep good resale value at all as technology evolves so fast.

It's very difficult to find an user that is willing to pay £800 for the lot. I don't need two monitors and 24GB RAM. One monitor and 16GB RAM is enough for me.

Anyway you set your price, but let the buyer negotiate. If the lot can sell for £500 or higher, I think it's good deal for both of you.

Maybe selling the parts separately will make a higher total. But you should factor in the time and effort to deal with several buyers.

You can get an idea of selling prices by looking on ebay and filtering on completed auctions,
In green, you will see what they actually sold for.

Today a GTX1080 will sell for a good price and it is easy to ship.

The rest of the pc is best to be sold to a local buyer.
Shipping a case is expensive.
Such a pc can use integrated graphics and is worth something to a basic desktop user.

If you are planning on upgrading to a current gen build, keep the graphics card.

GTX 1080's here are going 500-600. More if its a 1080 TI. If you need a video card in the next 3-4 years I woudlnt' sell it unless your not gaming anymore, then sell it and use onboard graphics.

Basically you put it for sale and see what you can get it for it, the market will help guide the price it will sell at.

Good luck!
