I have a low end pc that i used for school work, and gaming. (i3-7700, 12gb ram, 1050ti graphics) I am wanting to get a bigger pc, but i dont want to just through out my current one. But im not sure if i should sell it as a whole / sell it for parts / or if ill even get anything out of it. it runs great for the specs, running most every game i play at, at least 30fps (including doom) any suggestions? sorry if im in the wrong forum or anything.

You'd be better off selling it as a whole. If you parted it out, you'd be able to sell that 1050 Ti fairly quickly... but probably not the other parts. If you're lucky you could probably get around $300 - $400 for it.

Well it would for sure sell on ebay… but there's the matter of it actually selling for what you're comfortable with + ebay & paypal fees.

Other then Craigslist, there's also OfferUp. Sometimes you'll luck out and sell something quickly... other times something could sit for weeks/months before it sells.

I think to answer this question better, I'd need to know exactly what your CPU is. There's no such thing as an i3-7700, so my answer would change depending on whether the i3 or the 7700 is the part that's wrong.

If you are looking to sell it and get a faster pre-built, you will be wasting a lot of money on doing that. First you are losing money by selling a pretty new setup, second you are going to be spending more money on a pre-built with the extra costs for that. If you built this other PC, then upgrading should be a lot simpler since you already went through it.

Why did you get 12GB of RAM though, that seems an odd amount, do you have 4 RAM slots and matching dual channel setup in all of them or 8 and 4 gb RAM sticks?

You may want to list your exact current specs including all parts with the power supply, motherboard, etc... and your budget for a new setup.
