ASUS Maximus Formula, Intel Core 2 Duo E8600, Corsair XMS2 DDR2, etc., etc.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was planning on holding on to my dear LGA 775 setup for a while longer yet (yes, it's old, but it's a bit sentimental to me regardless), but alas, that may not end up being how it goes. As I recently came into a newer CPU at the generosity of another member here in a contest, so that I can make use of it, I am faced with considering selling my current platform off to cover as much of the cost as possible.

Therefore, ideas on appraisal for the following are welcome to help give me some ideas in aiding in my dilemma.

The parts for the platform are an ASUS Maximus Formula motherboard, an Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 CPU, a Xigmatech HDT s1283 CPU heatsink/fan with additional LGA 775 mounting hardware, and Corsair XMS2 (800MHz 5-5-5-12 @1.9V) DDR2 RAM (this is two kits/four modules totaling 8GB). I am contemplating selling my old MSI GeForce 8800 GT OC 512MB as well if it may be worth it.

I don't want to be too drawn out with the details, so if you have questions about something in helping you give a narrower/more accurate range, don't hesitate to ask. To cover some basics, I am the original owner of all of this stuff, and I believe all of it is beyond warranty by now. I have most, if not all, of the box/materials for the motherboard, CPU, and RAM. I only do not for the CPU heatsink/fan or the mounting hardware, nor for the video card. The stuff all works flawlessly, of course.

Anyway, I am really looking to sell the following parts together (at least the platform parts themselves; the video card can be separate) as I don't much have the luxury of waiting for it all to sell and being nearly without a modern PC in that time, but I may consider it. So I want two appraisals; one for each part separately, and one for the platform bundle (which is all parts sans the video card). I want prices assuming I would sell it here on OCN, not on eBay or Craigslist or anything.

Thanks!

8800GT - $40-50
Ram - $35-40
X38 - between $80-$100, any luck with the SLI hack? Might bring about more value on the higher end
E8600 - Depends, $80-110, the better the overclocking the higher you can expect for it
The cooler you might want to hang on to... they're not exactly expensive, the resale value won't be much, and you could probably use it for the new CPU you were talking about unless you plan on using something else.

I'd give it a $25 discount as a bundle all together, or throw the cooler in for free.

The CPU is batch Q823A221, in case it helps any (as someone also asked in PM). I'm not really sure what it's capable of, only that I believe it is average-ish. The week 20 and week 22 CPUs (Q820xxxx and Q822xxxx) were the top ones if I remember right.

I haven't tried SLI with it. This is something done with software/drivers so I didn't even think that's be a factor. It has been flashed with a Rampage Formula BIOS (0701) though.

As for the CPU cooler, the backplate is kind of "stuck" to the motherboard (with that sticky stuff or whatever), but I was hoping to sell it with it anyway, even if it meant me buying a Xigmatek Dark Knight for the new setup, which is essentially the same thing. I'd have to buy the backplate anyway as mine has no LGA 1155 mounting hardware, and the CPU cooler might help make it move, or so I figured.

Does anyone else have any ideas?

Flying toilet is pretty on, only thing I change is ram. You said its 8 gigs, so I would say 55-60

I was wondering if that seemed a bit low for 8GB of DDR2, but I know RAM prices have been all over, so I didn't know for sure.

What does ~$225 shipped for the platform (motherboard, CPU, heatsink/fan, mounting hardware, and RAM) sound? Assuming prices around the middle of the quotes given, that's actually a little less than the total summed up (and that's even before factoring in the CPU heatsink/fan and mounting hardware), but if I can move it all together at such a price, does this sound reasonable? Am I letting it go too easy? Would I need to go lower it to get it to move?

Any ideas? I've been looking around at other appraisals and sale threads and my head is spinning. Some things suggest one thing, and some things suggest another.

I'm still hoping for more opinions on any of this.

Unfortunately all the prices, aside from the CPU, are spot on. What with as cheap as DDR3 is, you can get 8GB of Corsair Vengence DDR3 for $50 brand new, DDR2 is unfortunately on a decline.

The CPU I would maybe put up for sale at around $80 since it still puts out fairly well in games, however the i3-2100 is the back breaker for that deal. Putting out just as much power as the E8600 with another two threads.

But 225 sounds like a good deal to me. I would think that would sell very quickly. ^_^
