How much money can i make off my X58 PC build?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
how much do you think i can sell my X58 PC build for without the GPU and HDD? here are the specs

System Specifications:

CPU: Intel Xeon X5650 OC to @3.6GHz
Motherboard: ASUS P6T X58 Motherboard
RAM: 12GB DDR3
Cooling: Intel i7 Extreme Edition Heatsink LGA 1366
PSU: Rosewell Green 430w PSU
Case: Antec Plusview 1000 AMG
Optical Drive: Sony DVD-RW/CD-RW Drive
Card Reader: HP SD Card Reader

Since i know that an Xeon X5650 overclocked to 3.6GHz is essentially almost identical to an i7 3960x at stock speeds and on par (give or take 5%) with an i7 5820k at stock speeds would $400 for the PC sound like a fair price? $400 is the same price it costs to buy a i7 5820k CPU alone. and last I checked, you can't build anything that has the power of a i7 5820k with all new parts for $400 so i think this is a fair price. what do you guys think about it? i also know that my specific X58 board goes on eBay for around $200 alone...

This belongs in the appraisals section. I assume a prospective buyer would only be interested in the motherboard, processor and RAM anyway and I'm not sure they would pay $400. My motherboard and processor were appraised in the $210 range together. I didn't bother having my RAM appraised because I don't think anyone else would want six 2 GB DIMMs even if they have the lowest CAS latency you can find.
