Is it a good idea to sell your whole platform as one?

I'm going to be upgrading my platform soon and I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to sell my CPU, motherboard and ram as one unit so someone could save on shipping.

 

Would it be wiser for me to sell the parts individually if I want the most back for them or do you guys think selling the whole platform at once would be attractive due to the savings on shipping and all that?

 

Just looking for some thoughts on this.

Honestly if you looking to make the most out of it then build it into a Steffen as well it as a working pc.

I would rather sell them as a whole, because it is a well-balanced build. I only sell things separately when I doubt if anyone would buy all at once.

The benefit of selling whole platform is instant transaction for all components, when someone decides to buy it. With separate components, graphic cards usually go the quickest, then RAM because people can just stick it in their existing system where CPU and motherboard are very dependent things.

 

Try selling it whole first and then sell by component if there is no interest in it. But be aware you may end up left with something that you won't be able to sell.

Selling it as a whole vs parts have their benefits and drawbacks. As a whole, just need one transaction and done. The downside is that chances are people are only looking for one or two key parts and aren't interested in much of what someones selling usually. Parting out, you can usually make a bit more money. Downside is that if you have a part people aren't really interested in, it'll sit around for awhile.

I'm patient and in no hurry to get my money back so it sounds like selling them individually is best.

Thanks guys!

I live in the middle of nowhere on an island so i'd have to sell the whole system online if I did that.

I do still have the box for the case..

but the original system is a little mismatched having a 1080 in it and also has a lot of money gone into the aesthetics and stuff that people won't likely pay extra for so I don't know about that..

Unless I find a friend who wants a whole system, I probably won't sell it that way.

Plus, I don't exactly want to do my upgrade to a 2080ti until the prices come down a bit in a year or so too so if I did that I'd just end up spending way more than I should knowing me :P

It's better for you if someone buys it all at once - but personally I wouldn't do that for something that isn't an ultra cheap prebuilt.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

That's a good point. Most people looking for used pre-builts are usually trying to scrapyard wars something aren't they?

Depends, I've bought a couple of dirt cheap prebuilts to use as media centers in the past. In general there are a lot of use cases for old sff prebuilts where speed isn't a requirement. I think of them like raspberry pis with (usually) better I/O and less dodgy boot drives.

people often pay a premium for older motherboards when theirs dies. 

The most expensive motherboards I've ever bought were used. 

muh specs 

Gaming and HTPC (reparations)- ASUS 1080, MSI X99A SLI Plus, 5820k- 4.5GHz @ 1.25v, asetek based 360mm AIO, RM 1000x, 16GB memory, 750D with front USB 2.0 replaced with 3.0  ports, 2 250GB 850 EVOs in Raid 0 (why not, only has games on it), some hard drives

Screens- Acer preditor XB241H (1080p, 144Hz Gsync), LG 1080p ultrawide, (all mounted) directly wired to TV in other room

Stuff- k70 with reds, steel series rival, g13, full desk covering mouse mat

All parts black

Workstation(desk)- 3770k, 970 reference, 16GB of some crucial memory, a motherboard of some kind I don't remember, Micomsoft SC-512N1-L/DVI, CM Storm Trooper (It's got a handle, can you handle that?), 240mm Asetek based AIO, Crucial M550 256GB (upgrade soon), some hard drives, disc drives, and hot swap bays

Screens- 3  ASUS VN248H-P IPS 1080p screens mounted on a stand, some old tv on the wall above it. 

Stuff- Epicgear defiant (solderless swappable switches), g600, moutned mic and other stuff. 

Laptop docking area- 2 1440p korean monitors mounted, one AHVA matte, one samsung PLS gloss (very annoying, yes). Trashy Razer blackwidow chroma...I mean like the J key doesn't click anymore. I got a model M i use on it to, but its time for a new keyboard. Some edgy Utechsmart mouse similar to g600. Hooked to laptop dock for both of my dell precision laptops. (not only docking area)

Shelf- i7-2600 non-k (has vt-d), 380t, some ASUS sandy itx board, intel quad nic. Currently hosts shared files, setting up as pfsense box in VM. Also acts as spare gaming PC with a 580 or whatever someone brings. Hooked into laptop dock area via usb switch
