Good trade?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well my friend wants to trade me his pc and $200 for mine, and i need the money to pay off some bills. (I actually sold this pc to him 2-3 years ago for $600) He will be keeping his monitor and im keeping mine also.

His Specs:

CPU - C2D E7300 @ 3.2Ghz
RAM - 4GB (2x2GB) OCZ Sli Series Ram DDR2 PC-6400
GPU - BFG TECH GTS-250 1GB
PSU - 700 Watt something...
HD - Western Digital 1TB (Same as mine)
Case - Raidmax Tornado (Green)
Mobo - Something by Foxconn forgot...

Does this sound like a fair trade or should i charge him more/less?

Also we can just switch the hard drives and intall drivers for the new hardware no problem right? We both want to keep our current games/apps.


Thanks!

I had a nice, long, detailed post....but crappy internet messed up the send and now I refuse to rewrite the whole thing biggrin.gif. Here's the summary:

It's all a matter of how you view it. Do you game a lot, or use it for light use? Foxconn isn't known for being great quality, so that's a downgrade. Your GPU is definitely going to get a downgrade. Your CPU is also not going to go upwards (I'd love to see at least a SuperPi 1M times comparo). If that is important to you, and you like your case, and you're happy....then $200 might not be worth it to you.

About the HDD issue. Most people say it will NOT work. I've had limited success, but it's all been on AMD systems...I'm not sure about Intel to AMD and vice-versa. Backup as much as possible, that's all I can tell you. Windows Backup and Restore typically works wonders. If not, backup and do a clean install....that'll help your run speeds anyway biggrin.gif.

Mainly the only game i play now is Runescape. Also will probably load Skyrim and Dirt 3 on to it. I'm sure it can handle it on medium settings, i used to have his pc i custom built it myself so i know exactly how it operates.

Just want to know how much money he should add to his for mine.

hmmm... well i would think (just looking over it not running exact numbers) i would think IMO prob charge him a bit more then 200 (mostly because of the cpu, gpu and since bfg is not around) but not to much but def not more then i would say $400 .. so maybe $250 -300, depending on condition.. warranties etc

But just a friendly reminder, try not to bump posts no less then 24 hours smile.gif (if i remember correctly thats whats recommended)

You said you sold it to him for $600 2-3 years ago. So say it's worth $250 now. He's saying your PC is worth $450, which is about what I'd value it at (maybe a little too high, even). If downgrading is something you wouldn't mind doing, and he's offered $200....it's because he's done his homework. Honestly, I think that $200 might be a little much from a purely numerical standpoint. However, I'm sure he inflated a little bit as incentive. Nobody likes downgrading, since it's so expensive to re-upgrade if you decide to do so. Also, it's expensive to upgrade....and $200 isn't a bad way to get what he's looking to do. If I were in your shoes AND I was interested in downgrading for cash.....I'd probably take him up on that deal.

Oh, I didn't even notice he had a BFG GPU. Also, I forgot that the E7300 was 775/DDR2. In which case, +1 to DNytAftr's price range of $250-$300.

200 bucks is about right, imo its still a crappy deal though as you're going to lose around half your performance
