[Appraisal] Two budget gaming machines to sell locally

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a ton of extra parts and I know what I have invested in them, most of them I picked up as freebies or in massive hardware swaps with friends.

These are the two machines I put together and want to sell locally.

First one:

Intel Core2Quad Q9550
MSI P43-C51 775 DDR3 Motherboard
8GB (4x2GB) DDR3 RAM (1333 MHz CL9)
Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 OC GPU
CM TX3 92mm CPU Cooler
Rosewill Redbone Case
Antec Earthwatts EA-380 PSU
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
Win7 Ultimate 64bit
IDE DVD-RW


I have about $300-$350 in this machine, I was hoping to get $500-$600

Second Machine:

AMD Phenom X4 9950
ASUS Crosshair II Formula Motherboard
4GB (4x1GB) DDR2 RAM (800MHz 4-5-4)
HIS Radeon HD 7770 GPU
Rosewill Redbone Case
Cooler Master Vortex 92mm CPU Cooler
Creative Sound Blaster 7.1 Sound Card (Audigy SE)
ThermalTake 430w PSU
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
Win7 Ultimate 64bit
IDE DVD-RW


I have about $250-$300 in this machine, was hoping to get $450-$500

This stuff is kind of old but is still decent for gaming especially at lower resolutions. Are these asking prices fair? Or should I be more concerned with getting my initial investment back?

I would say you're overshooting the mark by a little. I think you would be very lucky to get the top of your estimates.

Aiming for half-way (or a little more) between your highest cost estimate and lowest desired price estimate is probably more realistic, so $425-450 for the first (Q9550) and $375-400 for the second (Ph 9950)

I think you're expectations are a little high. Both these systems have really outdated hardware (for the most part) and there is no reasonable upgrade path for either of them. For these two reasons, the value is diminished and with new hardware just about to be released, you will be able to find last gen stuff for even cheaper so here are my two estimates about how much you could get for them locally.

rig 1: ~$450
rid 2: ~$375

Thank guys, I might lower the price a little bit if I don't get any bites at first. Also these will be the 6th and 7th PCs I've built and sold locally since this time last year, and I almost always end up taking $50 less than what I'm asking for. People like to haggle, I don't blame them, I do it myself.

But the Q9550 is still pretty fast, it's a DDR3 board and the chip is faster than the FX-6300, and the 965BE I had. It overclocks well but I will probably have everything set stock because I am offering a 1 year parts and service warranty with my asking price.

Yeah I think I'm going to ask $500 for the Intel and $425 for the AMD. If I get offers around $350 for either of them I will likely take it. Like I said most the parts came through bartering and I have no way of putting a price on what I have invested in it.

I did purchase recently to complete the rigs these parts:

2x Rosewill Red Bone cases @ $30 each.
2x AMD HD 7770's @ $80 each
2x Seagate Barracuda SATA III 1TB HDD @ $70 each

So that $360 I definitely want back. If I can get a couple more hundred on top of that, that would be great.
