I sell them or give them away.

I sell them on either a general second-hand website (non-auction) that is a lot more popular than ebay here in the Netherlands. Or I sell them on a large hardware enthusiast website where people buy and sell parts all the time.

For me, selling and buying secondhand parts has never been a problem. I recently sold my 560Ti and i5 760 + mobo. They both sold within the first day. I also bought a secondhand GTX 760, a secondhand Z68 motherboard, and a secondhand i5 3570. I had to borrow a CPU to flash the BIOS on the MOBO so it would be compatible with the 3570, which was a bit of a hassle. However, considering the things I sold, the whole upgrade was under 200 euro. Beats selling and buying a whole new system.

Just make sure you package them well (anti-static bag, and in a way where they can not easily be damaged).

I'll probably just give my old stuff to my dad or my brother. Even if it's outdated, it's much better then what either of them currently use.
