    Hey folks,

    I've been totally out of the world of custom built systems for a few years now, and no longer use or am in need of my system I built in '08.

    I know components depreciate in value FAST - so I'm sure my system isn't worth much anymore, prob 50% of what I paid at most, I'm not sure. (it was ~ $1300 new when built in '08) - but I'm wondering what I might expect to get for some of these parts.

    I'm trying to decide what is even worth the trouble of trying to sell. Some, like the PSU are newer and have held their value.

    If you're interested in any of these components, let me know what you think is a fair, or reasonable asking price. Make an offer if you like. I'm happy to group things together and would be willing to look at trades or partial trades for Tacoma parts

    Here's a breakdown of the components available:

    Antec 1200 case ($214 new)

    Asus P5N-D Mobo

    EVGA 9800GTX vid card ($300 new - prob worth next to nothing now)

    Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz

    6 gigs RAM total
    (2 x 1Gig Super Talent and 2 x 2Gigs G.skill)

    Arctic 7 freezer pro cpu cooler

    ZALMAN VF1000 VGA Cooler (added in 2010 - worth $58 new - ~ $50 now)

    PSU: Corsair HX 750 (modular)

    (This was added in 2010 - worth $170 new - now going for $145 on le newegg)


    ASUS 24X DVD Burner


    Rosewill RCR-IC002 74-in-1 USB 2.0 3.5" Internal Card Reader w/ USB port / Extra silver face plate


    Cheers,

    WB

    Here's what you can get for each if some seperatly(simply my opinion from what I've seen sold on forums):

    Case: ~60 bucks? not sure what used cases go for
    Motherboard: maybe like 20..30 bucks
    Cpu:35-45 bucks if it's a good overclocker the higher the price
    Ram: 30-40 bucks (mixing different stick brands is bad btw)
    gpu: about..40 bucks
    psu: 50 bucks..maybe.

    It's pretty old hardware. You're not gonna get much out of it.

    Sounds like a nice setup, I don't know much about computers to be honest. I like the case. Been wanting a gaming setup for awhile for a few games I would rather play on PC over xbox 360, but oh well.

    Thanks for the estimates, I think you're about on the mark, though I would have guessed a little higher for the PSU - we'll see what any offers are that come in.

    And yea, I don't expect to get much for it, but if I can make ~$220 total, that's $220 that's not sitting on the floor and can go to a new lift kit...

    I hear ya. I actually picked up an Xbox controller to use with my system, works flawlessly - I had some games I liked playing on analog controller much more than keyboard (ie Dirt 2, or racing games)
