How much should I ask for?

JoePro87
 Share

I built a pcpartpicker list, and it shows my computer parts new are still around $2400. The list will be included, btw. I've had this PC for a year and a half, and it was the first one I put together myself. Can you guys give me a good estimate that you think I should start asking? Thanks!

(Note: It doesn't have the price of the 1080 listed, but I see them going for around $600 still...)

 

Ignore the terrible pictures. These aren't what would go on the listing. This is just to give you all an idea of what it looks like. Also, yes, I know I SUCK at cable management.

Usually PCs, like anything else (cars, etc) depreciate in value as you use them. I would sell it for around 1900-2100.

That honestly is a relief to hear. I need at least like $1500, so it's good to know it wouldn't be unreasonable to ask that.

$1900 - $2100 for an FX 8350 + R9 390?!

I'd ask $1400 max. $1900-$2100 is way too much for a Ryzen 7 + 1080 build.

One word: Depreciation.

@JoePro87

i agree with WiseGuy, i would go for 1800-1900$ considering how new your system is, and also assuming that you're selling everything that's included in the partpicker list

If you have taken care of it and there aren't any visible bumps/scratches etc and you have done a good job in cable management(which is a plus to show off in a photo) then you can get  $1500. You have very good components. With the monitor, keyboard and mouse combo you can easily get the money you want!

Usually people looking to buy a PC aren't looking to buy a mouse, keyboard, controller, monitor, etc etc etc etc along with it.

The PC itself is worth like $1k.

Haha, to be perfectly honest, I suck at cable management. I did my best, and I don't think it's GOD awful, but it's nowhere near as good as some of the builds I've seen on here.

That;s fine as long as there is not dust accumulated in the case. Do you clean it often?

I used zip ties to hold the cables in place

I do clean it often, although it's due to be cleaned again. It gets dusty in my house!

the PC itself without the monitor, mouse, keyboard, controller, is 1700$ new, it would make no sense to sell it for 1K considering the oldest part is only 2 years old.

 

 

@JoePro87
i would go for 1300-1350$ if you wanna sell your PC by itself, that sounds like a good deal to me.

Were they white?

Were they extra long and extra wide/thick?

Did you leave a long pig tail on the zips?

 

Contrast can be good sometimes for some people. I try to melt the sharp edges off the cut zip ties.

It's actually about $2,400. The pcp list doesn't include the price of the GPU

The great thing is that you have an 8 core 16 thread cpu so you can market that strongly to increase the value and the 1080 is also a great card

Nah, just black. They're all on the back of the computer (the right side of the case, behind the mobo), so they can't be seen anyway

Clearly you don't understand how depreciation works.

2 years is a long time.

It's worth about 3/4 to 1/2 the new price by now on the used market.

Oh, yeah. If you don't include anything but the PC itself, you're probably right.

Have you thought about selling the components individually? You could make more money that way!
