I know this may sound a little extreme, but if I cant sell them or no one wants them, I will bring them to my brother and watch him go to town on them with a sledge hammer and a baseball bat. Depending how much of a head ache the said part gave me, I take it to the ranger and use it as a target. Did it once with a car too, great stress relief. The police wasnt as understanding when they where called over due to complaints from gunshots and they saw a 93 infinity j30 (or what ever the car was) full of bullet holes. Needless to say, the junk yard people where amused at our en devour.

Take them to Goodwill or pawn them. Well, pawn shops will probably prefer to take whole computers over parts.

OCN Classifieds or Craigslist. Certain things I hold onto like HDD's.

Ebay normally, Although I've used a store here in the UK called Cex (you can check what price you'll get online before you go) obviously doing that saves shipping.


this is what i do. although you have to be careful, they like to BS you sometimes :-\

Yeah, I'll probably tarde in my GPU at CeX when the time comes to upgrade. Haven't upgraded anything on this PC yet, though, and I've kept my old PC intact as an emergency replacement. The only components that have failed in eleven years of PC gaming have been two DVD drives, which went to the tip.

Just finished a whole new build and I'm giving the old stuff (only a PSU and a case away from a complete build) to my sister. She's in desperate need of a new desktop.
