Unless the PC has temperature problems a.k.a. failing hardware, that rig is easily worth $800


Uh, no, for one thing it's using an old first-generation i5, for another it's using a 660ti, and as someone who used to own a factory overclocked 660, that thing is barely relevant anymore, and finally it's likely had at least 5/6 years of use so there's no way in hell anybody with a lick of sense would pay $800 for that rig. Of course this is GameFAQs where sense/rationality/civility go to die.

A 660ti is worth $50 cdn tops. 4gb 960s go for $80-120 on kijiji and you can get off lease i7 2600 microtower workstations for $100-160. A first gen core i5 build is worth $80

totally this, after all, we are talking about used pc. if you friend is willing to spend another $350 for total $700, then he can get a better pc in black friday. other dude saying other wise is just clueless.

I think you're missing the part where he's throwing in a brand new $150 SSD, windows key, and a monitor. At the $200 fade suggested he'd practically be giving away the existing hardware.

I think it's a decent price to sell the pc on craigslist but not to a friend. It has really dated parts and personally I would ask for 125 if it were my friend.

I'm thinking about asking $350 from him. Subtracting the cost of the SSD, the adapter for the SSD, and a copy of Windows, I'm basically asking $175 for the above system and monitor. Is that too much?


@TravisCombs, if you updated from a older version of Windows to windows 10 on that PC then the motherboard/CPU already has a Windows 10 key bound to their hardware ID.

The only device in this situation that is getting a new Windows 10 key is your new PC.

I just built a new PC so my friend is interested in buying my old desktop. I don't think he currently has a PC, and he's not the most tech savvy guy (although he's far better than average). The thing is, I don't know what my old PC is worth.

Specs:

i5-760
Hyper 212 Plus
12GB RAM DDR3-1600
MSI GTX 660Ti
Corsair TX650 V2
Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 motherboard
Antec 300 case with 4 fans (2x120mm front, 1x140mm top, 1x120mm back)
DVD drive (unbranded from the front, I think Lite-On?)

I'm keeping my old hard drives as I want to keep the data on them, so I'd have to buy him something for storage. I'm leaning toward a 500GB class SSD which seems to be around $130-140, and I'll need a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter for this case (these seem to only be about 5 bucks). I'll also grab him a copy of Windows from eBay.

I also ordered 3 new monitors today for my new PC, so I can give him one of my current ones (which would be a Dell U2312HM).

$500 and that is cause it is used and has a older i5. I would not sell it for $350 that is too low

ITT: Only TC has friends and everyone else wants him to screw his friend over by charging him $500 for an old computer he doesn't need anymore.

f*** those idiots. You said he might not even have a computer?! Not cool. Help a brother out.


I agree. It's an old computer you don't need anymore. Just charge for the ssd and windows key. Help a friend ascend.
