How many have successfully sold your old PC parts when upgrading your computers?

Where do you go to usually sell them?

Coat them in olive oil and bake at 350 for an hour, then serve with a white wine.

I have a friend who is too cheap/poor to buy new, and so he picks up my leftovers. Mostly the video cards anyway. I don't sell old drives (those I might smash with a hammer for fun).

I keep at least one older gpu, in case my new one dies and I need a temporary one. Other than that I recycle them at a computer parts recycling place.

I keep anything that might still work with my new system to use as emergency backups or for troubleshooting any hardware issues I might someday have.

Anything that my friends and family may be able to make use of I give to them and the rest goes to the recycling center.

I make fans out of them.

that would be my serious answer, they only go to the recycling center when they're like 2 decades old and probably slowly killing me.
