    the best method on how to check its value is go to pc part picker and put in all of the components, it will give you a rough idea on how much it is new.

    2nd had id say £200-£300

    Buying those parts new (or the equivalent as some are not available to purchase new anymore) will prob cost £500-£600

    worth more if sold separately, motherboard will sell for between £80-£100 and same for cpu, ram for about £40-£50 i recon. ssd £25, psu £30, hdd £25 and so on, id expect about £300 for the full system, obviously depending on the overall condition of the components, this is just me estimating based on what ive seen on ebay, Gumtree etc.

    Buying new then I agree with Poison, maybe around £500-£550, 2nd hand i'd pay around half that.

    The CPU and GPU are old, they'll struggle with new games and not every game will take advantage of SLI, personally i usually have 1 decent GPU

    If you're after a new rig try freshtechsolutions.co.uk/

    ​the cpu would definately not struggle, the gpu yes, sell them both and buy a newer gpu and itll be sorted, just wondering PKRichie do you work for freshtech solutions as it seems to be the only site you ever recommend on here, im not being obtuse or trolling im just wondering because ive never heard of them before. are they really that good?

    The CPU is actually not bad, 7100 passmark score so its more than good enough for gaming. Its the 2 GPU's that let this down. A single 1050 ti is about the equivalent and would be preferable and double the ram.

    No mate I don't work for them, I've used them 3 times personally in the past, put a few mates their way and all have been happy with their purchase.
    I even recommended them in a previous thread and the lady bought one for her son, she then messaged me thanking me for the help imgur.com/a/K…WHk

    Thanks for the input all. I don't really have time to game anymore and can't remember the last time I went on my PC. Was just looking for an idea of how much to advertise it for really so not looking to upgrade.

    Thanks again

    ​cool dude, as i said i hadnt heard of them before, their options for buying prebuilt seem pretty decent tho. thanks for not taking my comment the wrong way.

    ​definitely split it up and sell separately mate, you'll undoubtedly shift most of it here no problem

    I'd say £300 - 400 at 60-80% of their value as they are now 2nd hand.
