Appraisal: What would you pay? (USA)

I'm looking at a used system for sale local to me. Specs are as follows:

 Rosewill Cullinan Red Gaming Cube with 2 LED red fans
- Intel i7 4790
- Asus Z97m-Plus motherboard
- 32GB crucial ram (DDR3)
- OCZ 700w semi modular PSU
- EVGA GeForce GTX 980 GPU
- Western Digital 512GB M.2 SSD
- 3TB Seagate secondary storage HDD

 

Guy is asking 900$ for it (OBO) and I think that's a crack-pipe price (even with the video card) but I may be out of the loop. What say you?

 

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Thats really not worth it. You can buy the card on ebay shipped buy it now for 250 and for 650 you can get a much more futureproof and faster ddr4 system and add a 980 if you want.

NOT A PROFESSIONAL, just a tech nerd. I am a human and can be incorrect. dont forget to quote me and put full specs in troubleshooting posts

I wouldn't pay more than $650-700.

 

The GPU holds most of the value, and 980s aren't exactly high end cards anymore.

Currently 900 for that system isn't tooo crazy but still not a good price. 6-700 best right now. Psu is bin material most likely anyways. Case is garbo airflow. Had the same one come by a couple times but from sharkoon.

Even with a GTX 980 that's a pretty bad price. I'd say it's worth more like $600-$700 tops. Of course the GPU market drives things up, but I wouldn't pay that much for a machine with a CPU from 2014.

It wouldn't be for gaming, so raw speed isn't critical here, but I figured they were asking way too much overall, plus the PSU is listed as pretty bad on the PSU tier list

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

If it wouldn't be for gaming then why not get a simpler system that is prupose built for what you want?

Primarily because I'm not in the mood to build a new system, and buying something pre-made is going to be easier for me right now.

He wants more for the one with the 970? $200 for the case, fans and WiFi adapter?

 

See if he'll let you go all scrapyard wars season 5?

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.
