I want to sell my GTX 1060 3gb, my AMD 2600, and my Team Extreme 8gb(2x4gb) 3000mhz ram kit.

Here is the exact kit https://www.walmart.com/ip/Team-8GB-2-x-4GB-T-Force-DDR4-PC4-24000-3000MHz-Desktop-Memory-Model-TLGD48G3000HC16CDC01/889874466?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=1229&adid=22222222227290707554&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=350978833672&wl4=aud-430887228898:pla-748873272611&wl5=9015247&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=112549857&wl11=online&wl12=889874466&veh=sem&gclid=CjwKCAjwg6b0BRBMEiwANd1_SPQ0WeQTtMEmiB-0UVlCq4NJ6Ygs0D5GHD73UhCfL7xdB47HObYweRoCoq8QAvD_BwE

Heres my 1060 model https://www.walmart.com/ip/Gigabyte-GeForce-GTX-1060-Windforce-OC-3GB-GDDR5-Graphics-Card-GV-N1060WF2OC-3GD/157434344?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=17580&adid=22222222227048648685&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=146933888395&wl4=aud-430887228898:pla-323081308797&wl5=9015247&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=125070555&wl11=online&wl12=157434344&veh=sem&gclid=CjwKCAjwg6b0BRBMEiwANd1_SLdQwPDBSAEqGOVxhp1XZBeNEj_Bt3gUQA1kgV-0-A9LmmSfRW2KcBoC8z4QAvD_BwE

Here is the 2600 https://www.newegg.com/amd-ryzen-5-2600/p/N82E16819113496

On my GTX 1060, 1 month after I had it the fans started creating a resonant hum in my case. Im not sure if this was because of the case, or the fans themselves but I bought a replacement pair of fans and installed them onto the GPU. Im sure this depreciates the value but in my mind I feel its not a bad thing because it means the fans are newer than the original ones would have been.

Im also including the original fans in the sale as maybe they wont create a hum in someone elses case..

The ram was used for about 1 month (still have original packeging) and the 1060 was used for about 4 months, with 3 months of the usage being used with the replacement fans. (also still have original packeging with installation disc)

The CPU was used for about 6 months, gaming daily 4- 8 hrs per day, with avg temp of 68c at most times. It also comes with the original cooler, the AMD Wraith Stealth cooler, never used and still has the original thermal paste on it. (original packeging)

I was thinking 160$ for both the 1060 and the ram, or 110$ for the 1060 and 50$ for the ram. Not sure about a price for the CPU. Any suggestion? Maybe do all as a bundle for 220$?

Does this sound like a decent deal? I dont want to rip anyone off.

THANKS AHEAD OF TIME FOR THE ADVICE!

What they are WORTH, depends entirely on what somebody is willing to PAY for them.

I can tell you that I have fairly recently purchased some similar parts, used, for a budget build for somebody and I have a fair idea of what "I" think those parts are not just "worth" but will actually sell rather quickly for if you find an interested buyer, and that's a big IF right now because a lot of people are holding on to their money, understandably.

The GTX 1060, I can not see anybody paying more than 100 bucks for. I think it is very likely that you will have a hard time selling it for more than 90 bucks when somebody can get a much better performing card for 150-175 bucks.

The CPU currently sells for 125 bucks new, and we never recommend selling used hardware for more than 75% of current retail if you don't want to have to sit on the part for a long time, and maybe never sell it. Most will pay an extra 25% premium on sub-200 dollar hardware to not have to roll the dice on a used part with no warranty. So that means about 90 bucks on the CPU, at most. I'd think at 80 bucks, it's more appealing.

The memory kit, you can currently get a set of 2 x4GB Team 3000mhz DDR4 sticks for 45 bucks. I recently bought a set of 2 x4GB Patriot sticks for 30 bucks used. I think 30 bucks is about the most I'd pay for an 8GB kit of 3000mhz or lower speed sticks used right now given the current prices.

So going off those figures, I think that somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 bucks is pretty fair for those parts as a bundle OR individually at the prices I suggested.

It's hard for me to say, because I rarely ever sell anything. I just keep it and use it for secondary or backup systems, or end up giving it away to somebody who needs it worse than I do. :)

That seems right in the ballpark I was thinking. Thanks dark!

Hell, I was thinking only 60 bucks for the CPU, even with the original UNUSED cooler, because I was trying to sell the gpu and the ram for 160$. Then add in the cpu and that makes the cpu 60$, from my original 220$.

Do you think the fan replacements on the GPU is a bad thing? Theyre the same model. it just sucks explaining to people the whole fan thing lol

Also, I wanted to keep them and build a little second PC just for fun but I think selling them is more of an option now with the upgrades I want to do for my main pc.

I don't think it matters, and so long as they work right, it's not something I'd even bother mentioning.

Totally understand on needing to recoup investments before making new ones.
Well they dont have the "Gigabyte" logo on the fans so I felt it would just be best to be transparent about it. Theyre the same fans though.

I got a rog strix 1070 8gb for £180(about $225)
So paying that for a gtx 1060 is not an epic deal, but the prices may be different in america
