Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys I'm trying to sell this PC on a second hand website. The computer is practacly new and has a 1 year warrenty. My price is €1.595 but I get constant massages that it is to expencive. I think that you guys have more knowledge and I want your opinion.

This are the specs:

  • i7 8700K
  • arctic freezer 33
  • Gigabyte Z370 D3
  • 16GB 2400MHz Ballistix ddr4
  • 256GB SSD from kingston (sata)
  • Sharkoon TG5 RGB
  • Inno3D Jet GTX 1080 ti
  • Xilence proformance XP700 PSU
  • windows 10 pro

It's already fully assembled and has Windows 10 pre-installed with all the drivers.

Its a little overpriced if new, but not totally crazy.

Used though, I'd definitely try to get it for less. drop it down to 1400 and its probably worth it

That's about 200 euro too expensive in my opinion. I would drop it to about 1400 and it would sell much faster.

Yeah that's too much.

A 2nd hand 1080ti sells for 600-700 euros.

There's no way the rest of the rig is worth 1k.

 

The 8700k is "only" a 6-core. With 8 cores being the new high-end for mainstream stuff and ryzen 6-cores available for 150 euros, it's not a surprise people don't believe the 8700k is not much worth, even tho you probably paid 400+ euros for it.

 

Edit: to give you an idea, a similar system with a 1070 instead of a 1080ti with a better PSU and a better SSD sells for 1.100 euros.

If it's only 2 days old, I might drop it down to 1500, and wait for a week or two. The more time, the higher chance somebody will buy.

Are people counter offering? If so what sort of offers are you getting? The used PC market varies a lot depending where you live. Like around where I live, it is mostly used Apple macbooks (many have problems). PCs and enterprise gear is almost non existent. So when that stuff does pop up, it goes for a premium.

the highest bid now is €1.200 but I have 2 other people that are interessted (defenitly more serious than the other bidders) and they still need to think about what they want to spend.

That's definitely not worth 1500E.

Even 1500 USD would be a stretch.

here is a little price breakdown:

i7 8700k - €400

Z370 Mobo - €100

16GB DDR4 - €133

256GB SSD - €42,50

Arctic freezer 33 - €33,50

GTX 1080 ti - €600

Sharkoon TG5 RGB - €85

700w PSu - €57

Windows 10 pro - €17

 

It would make for a total of €1.468, keep in mind that assembly in the Neterlands with windows cost about €140. with that it would cost about €1.608 in a store, and then you have to wait 7 days to get delivery.

I'm sorry to bring it to you but that psu is just worthless, don't even add that up. This just looks like a prebuilt with a flashy i7 and 1080ti (worst variant btw, a blower style) and the rest are mostly budget components. The cooler is barely enough at stock, cheap z370 mobo with an unlocked i7? With high end components, you're better of building it yourself and picking all parts individually. Where did you pay 140 for assembly?? Assembly with a year warranty costs €69 at azerty.nl which is one of the better pc stores in nl.
