selling PC hardware need some advice on prices

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I got this guy who wants to buy my old hardware. I don't want to overcharge for it and scare him off. 

 

What I plan to sell

 

ASUS H170 pro Gaming motherboard 

i7 6700

Corsair vengeance 16GB 

MSI R9 390

2 TB Western Digital Black HDD

 

Anyone got an idea on how much this would be worth? I never thought about selling it. I don't really want to collect PC hardware. I was going to just give to a family member but someone is offering to buy it from me. So why not?

I already have a new build. I went completely SSD with it. I have a 4TB SSD and a 2TB SSD. I don't even need the HDD. I paid $120 for it back in 2016 so I am guessing that $60 would be fine.

It's 4 year old PC hardware. I will just let him have it all for $350. Just as I figured. About a third of what I paid for it all new in 2016.

 

I got someone willing to buy it from me locally so I will run with it. 

 

I told him it wouldn't be too much cause this stuff loses value fast. 

 

Thanks for the replies and help.

Yep, $300-$350 is a good price for this, think that a Ryzen 2600 with a cheap motherboard will be cheaper than that, and the RX 580 are becoming cheaper and cheaper (iirc they were way better than R9 390?), if you can sell it for that good for you, don't expect anything over $250 as there are LOTS of computer parts out there and he could buy his own with those

I did. But I figured I would ask some people who might know more than me. I know it's older hardware so I didn't want to ask more for than it's worth like some kind of d-bag on Ebay or craigslist

I don't know cause the only AMD card I have ever owned is the R9 390. I believe the 390 was still better than the 400 series of cards. I don't know about the 500 series. 

 

I know he said he wants the PC parts to build a PC so he can play World of Warcraft. Which as far as I know isn't that demanding or it didn't used to be. Never played it myself.
