    Wanting to sell a PC, price recommendations?

    Hi, I have the following PC, built by myself a few months ago for around £500.

    Hybrid SLI Motherboard
    AMD 64X2 5000+ 2.6ghz x 2
    2GB DDR2 Ram
    250GB worth of SATA hdd space
    DVDRW
    HD4870 graphics card (still around £100 in the shops)
    Gaming Case with 12cm and 25cm fan, 600w Power Supply
    No OS due to licensing reasons, although I would put a linux on to show working.

    Just wanting to see some average prices on this sort of spec pc, so that i can list it on here without wanting ridiculous amounts or charging peanuts

    Hope to hear from you guys soon.

    Crikey - £500?

    You got ripped off - I'd expect around £200 for it tbh - why you might ask?

    I built a comp 18 months ago to better specs with a 23' monitor, amBX kit, wireless kb/mouse and Windows 7 HP for £550 - Excluding the extras your comp in effect doesn't have it probably cost me £330-350 (can't remember exact prices).

    I'd reckon my comp has devalued to around £300ish and mine has 4gb ram, 1gb 4870, 1TB hdd and an amd x4 black edition

    The price difference on those parts is at least £100 so...

    I would say around £200-£220.

    did you pay yourself an hourly rate aswell?

    Ok,so you are saying I should give £300 and my computer to someone? Not very helpful, I asked a question, and I wanted an honest answer. I didn't want to go into detail about the parts I used etc. Same goes Joey Bloggsy.




    Thanks for that honest quote there, that provides me with a basis on where to list my PC.

    Now for you people saying i have been ripped off, think logically here.

    Gaming Case- Set me back £47.50
    Power Supply- 600W- £49.99
    2GB DDR2 Ram Corsair- £35
    Hybrid SLI Motherboard- £60
    Processor- £48
    DVD Drive-£15
    Hard Drive- £20
    Hard Drive mount for 5.25 bay- £3.50
    SATA cables- £5 altogether
    Powercolour Graphics card- £100
    Copy of Windows 7 (not on PC as using that on new PC) -£80

    £463.99

    no h8 , just seems expensive compared to what you can buy ready made.

    My detective skills a tingling... I make what you're selling to have a face value tops of £383.99, not the initial £500 claimed, and anyways my original price of around £200 seems fair enough - I'd also consider offering the split as the gfx card isn't THAT suited to the setup inside the comp...
