Full Rig - Part Out or Not?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, my friend is moving and asked me about the value of his rig. He's wondering if he should eat the cost of taking it with him to Korea, or sell it. I'm wondering if it would be better to part it out or sell it as a complete unit if he decides to sell. Here's the specs:

Case: HAF 922
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3
CPU: i5-2500k
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600
Graphics: ASUS Radeon HD 7850 2GB
PSU: Corsair TX750
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
CPU Cooling: Corsair H100

Computer was built in mid-late February (I think) and the original graphics card swapped out for the 7850 about a week and a half ago.

Never been overclocked, which is a shame considering the cooler. Going purely off Amazon prices, it appears to be ~$1,130 to build an exact replica, brand new.

Any input would be great.

I would say 800 total. However if he has the time I would part it out because you'll probabally get more. Sell the CPU/mobo fast because Ivy is coming very soon.

As far as taking it to Korea or not I'm not him so I don't know how I could answer that question.

"$1,130" Is the price of each component all added together.

Rule of thumb is: Selling it as a complete system each, component looses its retail price tag.

EDIT: If you could find buyers for some of the parts i would most definitely part it out, you'll make much more money.

Take it to Korea. It'll probably sell for more there anyway. wink.gif

Thanks, guys. I'll talk to him later. Most individual parts are actually cheaper in Korea (~$250 cash for a brand new 2600k!) so we need to do some math using the estimates you guys have provided. However, it'd probably cost him close to $200 just to get the whole system there, which is problematic.

I wouldn't be surprised if you cleared a grand parting that thing out. It's definitely the way to go if you want to maximize your money.

I didn't have much luck selling my previous AM3 rig whole, but parting it out is definitely the best option if your friend has a couple months for offers to roll in.

Sold my GTX 470 on eBay (got more for it there after fees and such, asking price was a bit low here on OCN).
Parted out a Phenom II X4 955 BE and an MSI 870-G45 mobo, fortunately the buyer wanted both components so it saved me some trouble.
Sold an Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro heatsink a week later.
Sold the case (CM Storm Scout) about a month later.

Used the money to build my current sig rig!
