Trying to sell my desktop but dont know how much to sell it for

Hey guys I'm going to be selling my rig and was wondering how much I can get it for?
I'm gonna be moving countries and can't bring it with me so I'll just make another rig
once I finally move. The prices below is in AUD and I know i wont get 7k for it I just need
to know the ballpark of how much this would sell for now. PC is 2 years old if that helps.

sorry if this is the wrong area to post this 😓

The specs and price I bought it for:

Best way to know, is if you go onto E-Bay and look up individual components and then add them all up, you get the value of your parts.

 

If you want value of your PC probably take -10% or -15% off of the price because it's sold as a bundle and there you go.

All the prices I'm about to mention are in USD since it's what I know best, I'll give the rough amounts I'd expect if I were parting out the machine locally, then I'll convert to AUD at the end for the total. 

 

CPU - $200

Cooler - $50

Motherboard - $100

RAM - $120

SSD - $30 and $60 respectively

GPU - $400

Case - $50

PSU - $60

Fans - $30 total

Monitor - $200

RGB stuff - comes with the case (used RGB gear in my experience doesn't sell on its own)

 

All together that would be ~$1300 US, or about $1800 AUD. In order to get it to actually sell, I'd knock about $100-200 off that figure, so list it for ~$1600-1700, and be willing to take $1500-1600, maybe a little lower depending on how quick you want it gone.

Id say around 1200-1600 USD, When selling a system like this, Fans arent included in pricing and such, stuff like the Com pro and icue stuff just doesnt equate to much unless thats something they want. The GPU is probably only gonna be around 400ish USD, CPU is around 150-225 USD.

Around  1500$ for the system without peripherals. People shopping for a used pc usually never want them.

 

The screen still seems to go used for between 3-400$

 

Is this a huge pricedrop from the 7000 you paid? Yes defo. But its normal. You got the highest end stuff and very much so paid the premium for it but used buyers simply will not care about that. That 600$ motherboard to then is worth as much as that 100$ new b450 tomahawk they could get. Same story for everything else.

 

The used market is regulated by the cheapest competitive alternative.

 

You will simply put get more money for this system if you part it out and get a lucky buyer but other than that you are sol here.

 

Use ebay prices:

3900xt 200-250$

Kraken: 70-110$

Board: not sold-160$

Ram: around 140$

500gb ssd: 50$

1tb ssd: 80-90$

2080ti: 450-600$

case: almost none sold sold ones are sub 100$

psu: 70$

fans: 15$ a piece

 

 

Whats the reason for selling?

yeah i know I wont get the amount I paid for its just the way it is with PCs
only reason im selling is im moving to the US and dont want the hassle of 
trying to bring it with me and can use my laptop for the mean time while

waiting for newer parts to become available.

I mean if you want my honest opinion, just sell the case +fans, Monitor, PSU, and aio, the rest should be easily able to fit in a case with enough protection. Mobo, cpu, ram easily fit in a mobo box with both SSDS on it, then the GPU is able to fit. Should  help save a bit 🙂

I'm thinking most estimates here are pretty low, a 2 yrs old system that cost around US$ 5K to build can be sold for half of that that's still 2.5k

And given the loss you'll face anyway, keeping and moving all the "smaller" parts (ie everything except the case and monitor, maybe the PSU depending where you go with 110V/220V) seems waymore clever 🙂

update on the pc, my coworker will grab it all and has no issues paying for 2700 aud for it. Pretty happy with it, can probably buy a laptop for now and just build a new PC when i get to san antonio.

You'd probably have got a whole lot more for it, if you sold each individual component separately on eBay. But that would have taken time, time I think you don't have.

That's reasonable, monitors are expensive.

eBay the components and filter ONLY by sold/completed. 
 

That’s what it’s worth, minus your shipping costs. Every other price in this thread is just people randomly guessing.
