Looking for price with kb/m/display and without.

I feel $1800 for the lot is a fair price, everything is in perfect working order, I have kept the machine very clean, and most of the parts are less than a year old. But maybe I'm asking too much. What do you guys think is a fair price?

Yeah, no one is going to pay $1800 for older used parts.

$1800 is a lot for a 3570k/7970 machine. I wouldn't even try any more than $800 for the computer itself since it pretty much already needs an HDD upgrade. $1200 for everything would be really generous.

I would probably start around $1,000 for the computer. You can always lower your price if there is no interest.

If that's really all I could get out of it I'll just give it to my buddy. I would feel better giving it away than taking 30% of what I have in to it.

Don't forget, some people pay overpriced things.
You can always try selling it for like $1500 see what happens.
Try $1300 etc. Then maybe drop even more or give to your buddy.

realistically without The Monitor/keyboard/Mouse. i would say 1000-1300$ for the computer.

like others said. Used parts generally is a no-no for people to buy.

i go by this, it is automatically worth half the price as its preowned you then have to deduct 10% for every year you own it.

Part of your problem is that you're looking at the current price of those parts and not so much the value.

The GPU is listed 70 dollars higher than comparable cards are actually priced.

95 dollars for a dvd writer?

200 for a 300GB HDD? No one cares about Raptors anymore.

Many people don't include windows in the cost of computers because reasons.

While I'm sure that monitor is nice, most people would be drawn to a relatively comparable ASUS monitor that costs half of that. The average person looking to buy a used computer isn't likely to care that it's an IPS panel rather than the cheaper TN panels.

You have ~460 dollars worth of peripherals listed. While they're not bad, the keyboard alone is a niche product and most people who would spend that much on a keyboard would want it to be mechanical rather than have the LCD screen.

I'm going to be generous and say that you could probably get 1300 for it if you're willing to be patient. Yes, the figure is slightly low, but no one in your target market knows about, or cares for some of the choices you made. Regardless of that, getting 50% of your initial investment after a year or more in the computer hardware second hand market is actually pretty good.
