Worth Selling i7 6700K and Motherboard?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

About a year ago I picked up an i7 6700K and an ASUS Pro Gaming Z170 motherboard off a friend for $110. Seeing how expensive these components sell for used ($250-$300) is it worth selling them and upgrading to something like a Ryzen 9 3900x? I’m considering doing a build with 1080 Tis in SLI and I don’t want the processor to bottleneck them.

yes you should sell for the 250-300.

SLI in 2020 is pointless.

You really think you can get 250-300 for a 6700k and a board?

ryzen 5 3600 and a decent am4 board is cheaper than that new

Yep, that’s the only reason I’d consider it. It holds up well enough for gaming but when I could get a 12 processor and motherboard for like a $300 premium I really started thinking about it.

Just because they should sell for less doesn’t mean they do. People who are looking for a used 6700 or 7700k usually usually already have a motherboard for the platform already. So, instead of just buying a new over priced cpu they also have to buy a new motherboard and possible ram also. 

 

I definitely think it’s worth selling and upgrading.

I'd sell it, but wait for the new Ryzen chips to come out.

Unless you're going Intel, in which case the 10600k is an excellent option.
