[Future Build Log] Haf 912 Sell build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I want to build a PC and sell it on Ebay, earn some cash. My current list of components are:

Haf 912:$50
i5 2500k:$220
ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3:$105
Antec EA650 Green:$50
WD Caviar Black 1TB: $140
8GB 1600MHz Ram:$40
Hyper 212+:$25
6870:$150

total cost $780, I plan to make the selling point the overclock, and sell for $950-$1200

first, choosing a general direction for the core components is what i need help on. I also need help with getting a profit out of this build. any input is helpful. I also need a solid OCing mobo

Dude I don't think you are going to make any money selling a used PC. Sounds like a total losing prospect to me honestly. Don't mean to discourage you just giving my input.

At any rate pretty much any mobo from the quality manufacturers (asus, gigabye, asrock etc) will do but I'd recomend the Asrock Gen3 board. It's only just over 100 bucks and OC's really well.

I just mean PC parts are a lot like cars in that you lose money just rolling them off the lot.

Who knows though I've never tried it so you could maybe make 100 bucks off the whole thing. Just doesn't seem worth the time but I get doing something just for fun so more power to you. But yeah the Asrock boards are good and cheap.

I think it is probably a losing prospect unless you already have a buyer before starting the build. Most people that know what they want and need will build it themselves and those that don't can score a pre-built quad core with 6 gigs ram and 1TB storage for $300 at Walmart.

i've thought about this myself, but it's just not worth it. will you assist on rmas? will you help the customer with techincal difficulties? what if system arrives doa? too many unknowns and things that can go wrong. the pc will sit for a while most likely too.
