i7 870, GTX 560 Ti, 6gb RAM, 2 1.5TB HDD, etc.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to buy a machine on craigslist, the person doesn't know about computers much so I tried to get all the specs that I could

This is what it has:
- i7 870
- Intel BOXDP55WG mobo
- GTX 560 Ti
- 6 GB OCZ Golds
- 2 1.5TB HDD
- Corsair 800D (the entire thing is scratched, needs a new powered coat)
- Blueray optical disk
- CPU is water cooled but with the cheapest loop possible, has a bay reservoir
- 21" AOC monitor

It's all I got from the pictures he sent me, he has no idea what is in it. Not sure if the 800D is worth anything anymore since it's so beat up, even the aluminum face plate is scratched.

well, the first thing to check is what the system would cost you to build, right now.

sourced from various internet sources, mainly newegg:
cpu: 289.99
mobo: 133.45
gpu: 219.99 (gigabyte reference 560ti, cheapest one)
memory: 69.99 (for OCZ gold @1333)
hdd: 119.98 (59.99x2, 5400RPM drives)
bd rom (assuming read only, not write): 59.99
case: 249.99 (couldn't believe i found it at that price...directron.com)
monitor (21.5" AOC, dont think 21" even exists): 144.99

psu not listed, but we'll add 80 for it. im assuming it has W7 installed, we'll add $100 (OEM software). if it has vista or lower, take that off since you would have to pay for an upgrade anyway.

total: 1468.37

for the watercooling loop, add ~150 plus another 60 for every waterblock after the cpu.

so, to build that system right now, with shiny new parts and leaky cheap watercooling, it would cost you ~$1600.

as far as what the system is worth used, thats up to you. If the case is REALLY damaged, to the point that it is aesthetically unbearable, you'll have to take out the cost of replacing the case. If its got vista, you'll have to factor in the cost of an upgrade. if the cooling loop is so cheap and bad its unusable, you'll need to factor that in.

I would go look at it before you decide to buy. watch it run, watch it benchmark. find out exactly what gpu/hdd/psu/etc he has going on.

personally, i would offer the guy $1000. and not move up more than 10%.

^ That was well thought out. Personally I would just build my own.

Thanks, +repped

So would you guys consider a trip of 500 miles and $650 a steal for this rig? Not sure if you guys saw the link, but the case is beat up from the other pictures he sent by phone and the loop didn't look pleasing at all. I'm planning to buy it and flip it for moar monies smile.gif

hmmmm...at that distance, it might be cheaper to ship...although given that you dont know what condition everything is in, thats risky. see if you can get some higher quality pics and a video of (a)the cooling loop running and (b)the system booting if you plan to ship. actually, you should do that even if you dont plan to ship, because driving 500 miles to find out that the system doesn't work is a 100% loss for you.

and on that note, thats a really long trip. for me, 500 miles of gas is about $110 @3.50/gal, but i drive a jeep. just remember to include that in your cost for the machine when you go to turn it around.

$650 would definitely be a steal if you were buying the system for yourself. buying to resell is cutting it a little bit closer, but i can definitely see you being able to turn a profit on it, assuming everything is in good shape.

my final concern is this: your seller does not seem to be particularly tech aware. that was likely a $2000 system when he had it built, probably within a year ago, and it seems fishy that he is willing to let it go for $650. most un-tech-savvy people would try to get like $1500 out of it, not realizing that the cost of building it now has decreased significantly, meaning the value of the system has decreased significantly...tl;dr, the situation seems shady on the seller's end.

in the end, if everything works, or at least most things, you should be able to make a profit, maybe 20-30% of the initial investment. if you get it and find that its pretty much a scrap heap....then join the folding team and use your $650 iffy machine to benefit protein related disease research =P

his post is true but you have to consider that buying those parts [the 870 and p55 mobo specifically, i mean] new doesn't make much sense. hell, I paid almost 200 each for my cpu and mobo at the time of purchase and I'd be lucky to get much over 200 shipped for both of them @ ocn's marketplace today. I would go 900 and then have a ceiling of ~1000.

edit: 650?!?!?

if you want to go on a roadtrip, go for it man! that's a killer deal

Thanks +repped who helped a lot.

Do you think I could sell the tower and monitor for $900, if I spray paint the case?
