Valuation Advise on i7-3770 based System

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP



I'm trying to get an idea of what a fair market rate is for older systems. Can people weigh on for how much they think they would pay for the following system? This is in the UK but any local market prices would help me...


Motherboard - Dell Optiplex 7010 (transplanted into new case with all proper adapters etc.)

i7-3770 (non-K) with Stock Dell Heatsink+Fan

16GB DDR3-1666 (4x4GB)

256GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD



Asus ROG Strix 1050Ti

Antec HE450W Semi Modular PSU

3x Corsair 120mm Fans (Front are white LED and visible through frontpanel)

Coolermaster Masterbox 3.1 Lite Case 

VERY TIDY Cable Management



now initially i was thinking £300 would be a fair value for this system, but after looking at how much all the parts cost second hand, and the far worse systems for sale on facebook marketplace i'm guessing the price would be a bit stronger. You could trade in the Storage, CPU, GPU and Memory with CEX.CO.UK for around the 300 mark and they're not known for offering good trade-in prices.


Also whats everyone's opinions of systems with included Monitors, Keyboard, Mice. whats more desirable, bundled systems or PC only systems?

I'd go between 340-380 to leave wiggle room for people haggling

I'd say about £450. Lowest I'd go is £380.

Take what I say with a grain of salt, some things may not be correct.

If you're replying to me, make sure to quote me or mention me (@XR6), otherwise I won't see your reply.

I guess around 400 £, maybe run some games like fortnite and make Screenshots of the fps counter for marketing purposes. I think that is what kids are into these days.

Pretty solid 375-425. I'd probably just list it for 450 and see what that gets you.

What about adding a 24inch monitor, keyboard, mouse? Not gaming stuff just 60hz monitor, low end g series mouse and  decent membrane keyboard.


add 50? 75? What’s a 24inch 60hz monitor worth nowadays?
