May 2014 EDIT: so I never sold this thing, but am now looking to do so. Jeez I was overambitious on the old price, eh? Silly me

System is pretty much the same, except I now have two SSD's to add to the mix, an Intel 530 180GB and a Toshiba Q Pro 128GB and the video card is an OEM 8800GT rebrand pulled from a Dell XPS (called a GTS 240).

Looking for the quickest/easiest way to sell. Selling it as a whole would be ideal, but parting out will be quicker so I might just do that.

Anyway, here's an updated list of parts and an estimate to what I think the items will sell for, including shipping:
  • Cooler Master Centurion 534 with Antec Neo Eco 400C and Samsung DVD Burner - $20 local maybe? The case is 7 years old.
  • i5 750 with Logisys 120mm HDT Cooler - $50
  • Gigabyte P55-UD3L - $30
  • 8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 - $30
  • Intel 530 180GB SSD - $100
  • Toshiba Q Pro 128GB SSD - $50
  • Western Digital Blue 1TB - $40
  • OEM Nvidia GTS 240 1GB (8800GT rebrand with a slight OC, has an AC L2 HSF on it) - $30?
  • LG IPS 235V LCD Monitor - $100
  • Ducky DK-1008 OCN - $40
Any help is much appreciated, thank you for your time and help!

Stupidly, I deleted the system from my sig before I made this thread. I'll list the parts:

Cooler Master Centurion 534
Antec Neo Eco 400C
i5 750 with Logisys 120mm HDT Cooler
Gigabyte P55-UD3L with latest BIOS
8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600
Western Digital Blue 1TB
Sapphire AMD 7770 GHz FLEX Edition (allows 4 monitors on one card with a DP -> DVI adapter, included)
Samsung DVD Burner
1 intake and 1 exhaust 120mm fan

The cooler and GPU are new, I just bought them last week. The PSU, RAM, DVD and HDD are about 6 months old, the mobo and CPU are from around 2010. The case is the oldest, from 2007.

If I were to sell here, I think around $500 is fair, but I'm looking to get as much as I can. How much should I ask for it? Should I list at $750 and wait for offers?

Thanks for the help guys

Well damn, maybe it's not worth selling then. This computer is overpowered for what I do with it, but I'm not sure I want to downgrade to an e2180.

Thanks for the appraisal. Good to know that I'm way overshooting the price. I'll wait for a second opinion before I decide what to do.

$425. Maybe $450. The cpu is still solid, the ssd's are nice and the monitor is a good one. Start at $500.

i5 750 with Logisys 120mm HDT Cooler - $75
Gigabyte P55-UD3L - $60
8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 - $60

Wouldn't take less, the CPU is still really solid, an 1156 board is really wanted and ram prices are throw the roof these days, at least $50 for 8GB, what's yours? 1x8GB or 2x4GB?

the rest look good.

Sell the CPU, MOBO, Ram as one and part the rest out. Yes it's more work but you can keep a better price on the valuable parts and take the hit on the others. ie the Intel SSD might sit around a bit at $100 but the Toshiba should move at $50. The mobo etc should get near $200.

It's a pair of 4GB sticks. I wasn't aware that 1156 boards were still wanted.

Sounds like parting out may be the way to go, I get too many bogus offers on Craigslist.

Thanks to both of you for your replies.
