How/Where to sell my used PC

I built my rig in August of 2015, played it quite a lot until about July 2016. Then it pretty much sat until November of 2017 when I returned to it to play some new games and I was curious to test the hardware on new games. Honestly should have gotten rid of it at the end of 2016 when it was just over a year old, but here I sit with a 2 1/2 year old rig with only about 1 year and a couple months of being active on it. Just looking to see what kind of value I might be able to get out of it, and if I should sell it as the assembled rig or disassemble and sell parts individually. I paid around 1500-1600 for it not including the keyboard and mouse. I'm assuming I could probably get 7-800 out of it but I'm not quite sure. Processor and GPU are pretty much just one generation behind and still have no problem running new games since I went with intel and other quality parts. Also neither the gpu or CPU was ever overclocked but both are capable of doing so. Here is my part list, notice the list is going to say that the value is 1100 something but it's not accurate because parts are used and data is not given on main components.

Once again I have never had any issues with parts, computer has always ran great and I assembled it with care. Just need guidance on how/where to sell it and what you guys think I could get out of it

    Just don't use that price list if you sell online through something like Craigslist. That's what I use.


    $1000. I MIGHT go to $900 but I think $1000 is very fair.

    But since none of the components are brand new, price reduction is 50%. So, you're looking around $900 for whole setup.

    Note: You can't ask money for Win OS since you need to be licensed retailer by Microsoft do to that, which you're not. I'd wipe all the drives before selling it.

  3. I looked up a couple sold units on eBay. Models with an i7-4790K and GTX 970. Other specs and bonus items were roughly equal to yours. They sold for $650 to $780.

    Example #1 $650: Better PSU, cooling and more storage. No additional peripherals or OS. Everything else similar. This unit is worth less than yours.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Custom-Pc-i7-4790k-GTX-970-16gb-G-skill-RAM/222781711881?hash=item33ded32609:g:5pAAAOSwSypaTceu

    Example #2 $777: Junk PSU. Decent keyboard and mouse. Also has microphone and monitor. Windows 10 rather than 7. Everything else is similar. I'd consider this about even with yours.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultimate-GamER-i7-4790k-4-0Ghz-16-GB-DDR3-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-970-CHEAP-/272573858830?hash=item3f76ab040e%3Ag%3APOIAAOSw9GhYbsWK&nma=true&si=0JugEArHuB7P1wxWjhsuSpbtXiY%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    I'd say you are on the mark with your estimate of $700 to $800. There are more examples if you care to look on eBay. Only look at sold not for sale.
