Friend is selling his Rig, asking price suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I think he could get $750, seeing as he spent about $1000 with monitor almost two years ago, But I wanna know what you guys think. Is it only worth $600? (Note, he has one additional Hard drive in this same as listed, I believe he'd include that as well, so a total of 2tb HDD space)

I would sell it for $600 since most people would try to lowball and it's a reasonable price for older hardware

With that logic, I'd put it up for $750, then let a lowballer get it for $600. They think they got a great deal, and you get exactly what you wanted.

Impressive considering you spent £417 for parts!

 

This is one of the reasons I wanted to ask. I dont deal much with used parts, second hand value is lost on me. I do know all of his stuff is in good condition.

You also have to consider the part in comparison with current hardware. For example, the 960 launched at about $200 US but is now basically matched by the $140 1050 ti. Someone building a brand new PC with a Ryzen 5 and a 1050 ti can probably get equal or better performance for about $700 with brand new hardware that is still under warranty. That being said, I would agree that $600 is probably the most you can reasonably expect to get. I know I'm not adding much to the conversation, just wanted to include this so people who might be trying to sell hardware can understand the common buyer's perspective. Sellers tend to overvalue their stuff because they just think about how much they paid and don't consider the march of progress.

He was actually thinking he could only get $500 and I knew it was worth more than that, just wanted to gather second (and third and fourth and fifth) opinions to verify my theory. $750 is optimistic but maybe to the right buyer. $600 seems fair to me

IME, completed builds like these are generally harder to sell, which is why I usually opt for parting things out. If I saw this listed at $600, I would compare it to prebuilts that I can get off the shelf for the same price. This one for example may lack the SSD and K processor, but its GPU will ensure a better gaming experience and its backed by a (very limited) warranty and return options. That said, I would still list it at $600+ and take any offers at/above $550.
