Want a new PC, how should i sell old?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
so my setup is in my sig(PSU is 1k watts not 720). the MOBO isnt suppose to support this CPU, got lucky and found myself a bios that makes it compatible with the cpu.

my question is, whats the best way to sell this pc?

i want to keep the HDD's, everything else can go. atm the case is PURE ****, i have an ocz vendetta 2 cooler, and the 5850's were flashed to 5870 for the extra voltage and default frequency.

i was thinking either

A: buy a new MOBO,Case,HDD, set up windows with some games and sell it on ebay. put up some benchmarks(its still a damn powerful PC).

B: sell it in parts.

how much would i get if i go either route?


i am planning to buy my new pc during the holidays, planning on the new ATI cards and might get the amd FX series(depending on how deals are).

I sold my 965 and ga790fxta-ud5 mobo and my 5870 for $400 combined which I felt was a fair price for the buyer and I. You could probably throw in some random 7200 RPM drive and sell it complete for $500 - $600.
