What Is My PC Worth And How Do You Rate It?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. Have not posted here in awhile.

I thought I would start off my thread with a question I have. rolleyes.gif

I would like to know how much my PC is worth or can be rated for today's standards minus the keyboard and mouse

Yes I know it is really outdated (DDR2 Yikes) tongue.gif but it really comes down to college budget and other things in my life.

Since having this computer for nearly six years, I have went through three graphics cards which include, 8800GT, and a GTX 250 to my current GTX 460 and added another 4gb of DDR2 Ram and added a bigger HDD from 500GB to 640GB (the older one died on me)

I will eventually within the next two years hopefully build a brand new PC from the bottom up. wink.gif

As old as it is, I can run nearly all my games on max setting getting over 30 FPS at 1080P thumb.gif

I look forward to your input.

Thank You

Id say about 400-500$ or so.

my bad probably worth $450-550

Its not a bad setup. Sure, its older but its still a quad with 8gb of ram. An SSD and some overclocking (if you haven't already) would make for a nice well rounded setup.

I'd guess around ~$450-$500 value.

It's obviously outdated, but not useless. (IMHO)

As long as you're happy with it and it's playing your games just fine (at the rate you're satisfied with), that's what matters. thumb.gif

It's fine. A 460 isn't bad at all, and most games aren't going to care too much about an outdated processor. I wouldn't want to play team SC2 on it, or pump up the unit size settings in Shogun 2, but in general you're not going to have problems.

Legal windows: let's say 80
460 (used, like all of it): $75
HDD, slower than more modern ones: $40
Some sort of cooling, el randomo case, coolermaster PSU: say $65 for the lot
Processor/mobo/RAM: $120 seems fair

Tower total: About $380 sale value? I take a bit more off for used than most though. Tough to get a new computer for $380 as capable. Well not that hard, but not with windows included.
Used 23" monitor of unknown model: Another $100 or so?

I would agree with the others regarding $400-500 range. Keep in mind something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. If you tried to sell it you may be lucky to get $400. You have done what you can with it by upgrading GPU, adding more RAM and keeping it viable though. A decent rig should last anywhere from 3-5 years IMHO so you at least got that and then some. Careful of the upgrade bug $$$$ biggrin.gif
