I kinda want to sell my pc to a friend and curious about price?

There are a few things I would have changed about my build if I had stayed at the same budget, but I also kinda wished I had increased my budget by about $150-200.

How much do you think a fair price would be?

I have it overclocked to 4.3ghz, if you think that might matter.

If its actually a friend, I think 5-600 would be fair enough. It really depends on how bad you need the money and how much of a break you are willing to give.

That's kinda the range I was thinking. I don't need the money terribly, but having just purchased the PC I couldn't really justify spending another grand on a computer unless I could offset the cost.

What if I sold it to him minus the GPU? Maybe like $350?

How good of a friend is he and how much does he know about computers?

This actually matters. Your standard PC noob will get a much better deal if he is slightly overcharged by you than he would if he went to Bestbuy or alienware. It's almost doing him a solid by overcharging him.

I'd drill him for an extra $150

One of my best friends, and a decent amount about general computer use, definitely more than the average person our age (twenties) but he's never built one and doesn't know much about specific hardware. His level of hardware knowledge wouldn't impact what I asked him though, just looking for something fair for both parties.

500 in that case. You still make a bit of bank, and you do a solid for your best friend. No feeling like you were ripping him off and hopefully no feeling ripped off by him.

Id say 550-600 is your best range
