Is SellGPU.com safe or is it a scam? If so is there any other similar services that will buy computer parts?

I don't know but just ebay it, that's where you'll get the best price.

Not sure where you are from, check webuy.com . I sold there multiple times, the prices they offer aren't anything great but they will be willing to take anything you give them, no matter how old. (of course under the condition that it works)

It could be legit, but keep in mind that they will obviously take a cut out of whatever they get for it, meaning you might be better off selling it yourself either locally or on ebay, for the best price.

https://www.trustpilot.com/review/www.sellgpu.com (Though not sure if reliable, since each reviewer only has a single review to their name.. for all we know, they could be the same person)

I mean, I put in my GPU (as a 280x since that's basically the same card/rebrand as my 7970Ghz), and they offer me a massive 28$ for it...  I know for a fact I can get a lot more than  28$ for it, even if I consider ebay and paypal fees, I'd still be making over double that amount selling it myself.

I selected Evga 1080TI never overclocked or mined on.

Same card on ebay

So my thoughts are it IS a scam by what they actually give you for value of the card.

 

For the record.... Ebay fees

So lets assume you get it for 600 (about average)

So that is $4.38 on the initual 50 and $22 on the remaining 550. So $600 - $26.38 =  $573.62 your cut.

Its not straight up scamsite. But its also not best option if you want to get most out of selling stuff. They aren't really "scamming" with payments either. They are more like pawnshop. Looking to get profit by reselling stuff. So if we take @AngryBeaver's example from above. eBay is marketplace who takes cut from price to cover their own operation. Sellers could use other means, like forums, with less protection both ways. So with eBay, thats what their part is. SellGPU.com is offering service where you get straight up paid. No need to swap details with buyer, fight with large sums of money and shipping stuff. You send working card in and get money for it. Easiest way. But since you sell card to them, not to other user directly, they are in business of reselling. And that means that they are looking to get back money they paid to you + shipping fees (+ other costs of running a business). Which means that value they offer is noticeably less than what the actual value is. Just like a pawnshop operates.

Which in this day and age there is little reason to use them. You can easily toss up a 1080ti for a $500 buyout. Before this though take the card to a shipping place like USPS and see how much they will charge to pack and ship the item Probably $15-25 in most cases tack on about $5 for your time and gas and make sure to add the shipping cost... so they get the card for $530 probably or just list it higher and say "Free shipping" either way the only work you need to do is drive it to a shipping place and they will do the rest. So for minimal effort you made an extra $200 in profit for pretty much no risk if on Ebay.

 

Also if you do ship on ebay take pictures of the card before shipping and the package before it ships. This pretty much covers you in case of a corrupt buyer

Umm, what? What did you expect? You are searching from company which verifies other business legality, not from SellGPU's site.
