What the fuck is this mans thinking process

Pi31415
 Share

So I posted my fx build up for sale on the facebook market place just to see what I could get for it. I have gotten a few people trying to trade pretty dumb things, one person asked if I'd take his macbook plus $50 for my pc. Of course I said no but whats the thinking process that people go through? So today I wake up and this guy wants to trade my PC for this tablet/laptop???? kind of device. If I'm correct most of these have atom CPUs but I see a small i5 sticker, still without a doubt not worth anything near what I'm offering which is a 1050ti g1 and 8 gigs of ram with a fx 6300 in a fairly nice case and powersupply. All pictures are down below. Let me know what you think.

Some people just don't know what things are worth. It basically just comes down to that, just people being uninformed and/or ignorant.

Very ignorant. I've always been straight up and try to tell them, some give me a sad story and I feel bad, some try to convince me that their trade is the best deal ever. Some people get genuinely pissed when I say no. I had someone offer me their Cannondale Trail Six Mountain Bike and $80 dollars, now I did look it up and the bike is pretty expensive that would be a deal that I might consider if I was trying to get out of this hobby

few people keep tabs on what their stuff is worth, too much effort for them to look up the prices on the used market and they also probably barely know what a 1050TI or FX6300 are tbh

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

I think you'll have better luck trying to sell your graphics card separately to be honest, there isn't much market for an fx cpu these days.

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.

As mentioned, they don't know how things are worth, or they do, but hope that you don't.

Also, they are people who want to see how desperate you are, and low ball you... (but many don't know how to do it.. "Oh you are selling this perfect condition Porsche 911 2016... I'll give you 50$!"), And then you have the people that are time wasters. they want to see the product, and they want to come at the most inconvenient time possible, and then doesn't show up, 2 or 3 times, and then low ball you, in the hope that you give up and gets it for extremely low price.

 

That said, I don't think there is any interest in AMD FX CPU at all. Not only, we are talking about AMD which many knows nothing about, but you are talking to a manufacture of CPU that got a reputation of release very low cost/low end CPUs. I think it will be difficult to find someone who actually knows the CPU and is looking for it. You are probably better off selling each component of your computer separately.

If you are selling something, don't get mad when people low ball you. You're going to get many people like that... That is just how selling works...people looking for the deal of a lifetime. Say no and move on. You can try to counter offer but chances are they're just tossing an entire box of ping pong balls out there to see if any of them bounce back....so to speak. If someone offered a bit too low you could counter them since they're likely just looking for a better deal and not just shooting low ball offers into the dark.

That's a lot considering you can build a new ryzen based pc for about $300. I wouldn't say your system is worth more than $350, and a large chunk of that would be the graphics card.

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

Man! That really sums up what it’s like to sell an iPhone on Craigslist or Kijiji. Low ballers everywhere. “Sure I’ll definitely sell my iPhone 7 for $100”. Give me a break!

Yup it is standard procedure, that is why its called bartering, the buyer starts low, and the seller starts high, then you haggle and finagle and go back and forth until you meet on equal ground and the transaction takes place.

 

People always want to buy low, they want everything for nothing. Stores spend trillions every month on researching how people come to the decision to buy a product. Some people just want to sell their item and get whatever cash they can get, that is why the buyer starts low. The staged shows on TV really show how its done, just take a look at American Pickers or Storage Wars, both totally bogus a.f. but that is how bartering works.

 

If you go to other countries, haggling over price is done on everything.

 

 

 

Yes lots and lots of people have no clue Ryzen exists. They just know their 15 year old computer doesnt work, they took it in to the repair guy, he gave them a quote and they went to Bestbuy. Bestbuy clerk will sell them the most expensive product, for the commission he gets, if its not that, then the clerk will sell them the product that needs to be sold to get it off the shelf for the new products to come in behind it. Those same people pay too much for what they use the pc for. But the clerk sells them way more then they need.

Do you put down in all caps that you aren't taking trade-ins, pay with cash only, and are firm on the price?

 

Because if you don't, people will just throw in what they think they can get away with. And even then I probably won't count on people reading what you're not interested in.

Yes you are right, placing the right words in the right area of the ad is crucial. Even "professional" sellers suck at it.

Like stealerships and their online classified ads.

Or the multiple dwelling owner with an ad and at the bottom states something obvious. Condo's with 65+ rule, or whatever, no pets, no kids. Gotta be right at the top.
