How to price my computer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello!

I'm going to sell my computer and I want to get the right value for it, could I get some tips on what I can expect? 

 

When I did a fast counting the parts was worth around 12 500 SEK, which is 1280 USD, 1700 CAD and 1180 Euro. Should I expect to sell it for that, more or less?

Looking at a new complete computer purchased at a store with around the same performance but a rtx card (2070 super) it starts at 17 000 SEK and builds averaging around 20 000 SEK, which is 1750/2050 USD, 2300/2700 CAD and 1600/1900 Euro.

 

Parts:

 

Graphics: MSI Gaming X 1080 TI

Processor: i7-7700K

RAM: 32 GB(4x8) Think 2666MHz

Motherboard: Strix Z270F Gaming

Chassi: Phanteks Eclipse P400 Tempered glass

CPU cooler: Coolermaster 212 evo

PSU: 650W 80+ (gold or plat) that's modular

 

Thanks for helping!

 

Best regards,

Mr. Swede

Absolutely no point in asking here.

  1. Go to your local classifieds.
  2. Compare pricing.
  3. Price accordingly.
  4. Sell.
  5. Profit.

Asking here will only give you what people here would pay, and that's not at all relevant to your local market. You could either price yourself so high you never get interest, or you'll lose out on a lot of money. For example, where I live now I sold my GTX 980 for $400, whereas I'd get maybe $280 in the last city I lived in. Simply different markets.

 

Why on earth do you think people would give you new pricing for something that's been used for a few years?

I can tell you what I'd get in Florida or Georgia. In the Swedish market, probably not.

 

Look at eBay and the Swedish version of Craigslist/Gumtree/Kijiji to get an idea of what the parts are actually selling for today in a used condition, combine those numbers together, then adjust for the age and/or condition of the build.

Senketsu - Ryzen 5 1600 - MSI GTX 1050 Ti LP - Gigabyte B450 AORUS M - 16GB "OEM Special" craptastic DDR4-2400 with a stunning green PCB - 256GB Adata M.2 NVMe - Silverstone SF450 - ABS R206-ITX (worst/best case ever) - Wraith Spire

Had these thoughts before but you guys hammered the nail, making me force to accept the truth that it can shift a lot :D

Thanks anyway!

Do of course note that the current listed price for any of these parts is going to be an inaccurate evaluation.

A look at whatever the Swedish version of ebay is might give you a more accurate reading on the value of used parts.
