    asus motherboard mb0g50
    i5-4690k
    GTX 950 2GB EVGA
    8GB Ram 1600 MHZ
    1TB HDD 7200 RPM

    Ask for 300 and be prepared to take ~ 250

    Thank you,




  • This started life as a standard Dell xps 8300 PC, which I upgraded over time...

    Dell XPS 8300 board
    Intel i5-2500 CPU 3.30GHZ
    12GB RAM
    GeForce GTX 1060 3GB (Asus)
    Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB
    USB 3 pci-e card
    EVGA 650 P2 PSU
    DVD Writer
    Fractal Design R4 case
    23" 1080P Dell LCD screen with speaker

    Thanks in advance for your valuation.

    This one is not so bad, I think 250 is way OTT. I'd say put it up for €480 and be ready to accept about €400.

    Processor is seriously out-dated but considering it has the monitor included, the GTX1060 and its an XPS, probably get about €500 for it.

    Thanks for that, the i5-2500 is old alright but still performing well for everyday use.




  • It is, but it falls down badly in CPU heavy games. Try playing Battlefield 1 online 64 with it for example, and you'd get frequent bad framerate drops and under-utilisation of the GTX1060 (bottlenecking). That's what I meant in terms of it being outdated.

    An upgrade to an i7-2600 for about €80 would solve the problem, or else a i7-3770 if the motherboard supports 3rd gen would be even better at about €120.

    Cobbled together a PC with old parts I had lying around and just wondering a rough price on it so I can get rid of them and get something else that'll take up the space:

    Asus M4A88TD-V
    AMD Athlon II X6
    Corsair Vengeance 4GB 1600Mhz
    MSI GeForce GTX670 2GB
    Hitachi Deskstar 500GB 7200rpm x2
    Cooler Master B500 V2 PSU
    Philips 236v monitors x2
    Antec DF-30 case
    or
    Aerocool Predator X3 case

    I have a copy of Windows 8 I'll pop on it as well that can be upgraded to 10

    Throwing this up again as it's in the way now




  • Toying with the idea of a new build, whats a fair price for the following

    i5 2500K
    MSI Z68A-GD65 (G3)
    16GB (2 x 8GB) HyperX Fury
    Sapphire RX 480 Nitro+ 4GB
    Cooler Master Seidon 120v
    650W Cooler Master Semi-Modular PSU
    Corsair Carbide 100r windowed
    250GB Crucial SSD
    Brand New, still sealed OEM 3TB Seagte HDD
    Official W10 Pro OEM w/Disc & License Key/Sticker

    Have all the boxes, system is spotless with excellent cable management. Everything bar the CPU and Motherboard is give or take a year old.




  • Hello,

    I'm thinking of upgrading my boy's PC, which is almost out of warranty (2 years).
    It was bought from PC Specialist, and I'd like to move the following bundle:

    ASUS® Z170 PRO GAMING: ATX, LG1151, USB 3.1, SATA 6GBs
    Overclocked Intel® Core™i7-6700k Quad Core (4.00GHz @ upto MAX 4.60GHz)
    Noctua NH-D15S Ultra Quiet Performance CPU Cooler
    16GB HyperX SAVAGE DDR4 3000MHz (2 x 8GB Kit)

    I don't know what would be a fair price to ask. Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Do you mind me asking, what are you updating it too ?

    Probably an 8700K and a whole lot of RGB.




  • I would say hang onto it unless you're willing to drop a huge pile of cash (on what would probably be a rather pointless CPU upgrade?) Re-sale value of 6700 and 7700 has plummetted, go for as little as €150 now even though they're still fairly top tier gaming CPU's.

    Unless you're streaming/multi-tasking heavily and frequently, I can't see the logic personally.

  • You might have a lot more luck selling the monitor and PC separately. Always interest in 144hz screens 2nd hand, though most buyers who are interested in the full package don't care/understand the value and see it as just a normal 1080p monitor.

    Same goes for mice/keyboards/accessories - most buyers buying a full setup don't really attach much value to the cost of these items, as well as things like watercoolers, high-end fans, etc.

    Hard to say in todays market, as something is only worth what someone will pay. Realistically, maybe get around 800-900 for the PC+monitor bundle.




  • @jay132 - some good components there that command strong enough prices second hand. Split the whole thing up and sell each item separately on adverts.ie

    You'll get more that way than selling as a complete bundle...

    any help is greatly appreciated

  • I am currently selling a HP Desktop PC, along with a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Also included is Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 and Norton Internet Security valid until January 2019.

    I purchased the PC in mid 2015, and came to a total cost of €649.99. I'm looking for €200 for the whole lot. It would be ideal for a Christmas present or for college students. I need it gone as soon as possible.

    It is in pristine condition and I myself have never had any issues with it.

    I have it advertised on both adverts.ie and DoneDeal. Below are the links for the adverts and on there you will find all necessary specs and other information.

    In the meantime, if anyone's interested or has any enquiries, feel free to reply :D

  • Spec is very poor. And you put a non-negotiable price of €200 on it. No wonder you haven't sold it in 7 months to be brutally honest. I'd take any offer over €100 if I were you. You'll probably get more if you split it all up.

    I need it gone ASAP, but don’t want to let it go for little or nothing, for €200 you’re getting the whole lot (keyboard, mouse, monitor, Microsoft office). I understand that the computer itself isn’t worth €200 but the price includes those added extras.

    It’s just been a nightmare trying to sell :(




  • I think the problem is that stuff typically doesn't add much value for most people, and the base PC is only worth about €60 as it's very low end/outdated with no upgrade possibility.

    The monitor wouldn't be worth more than about €40 either. I honestly think you'll just have to accept anything over €100-120 as a reasonable price.




  • It's 5 years old and was even low end enough 5 year ago it's just not desirable to anyone for that money. Screens can be got so cheap now if rather have 100 euro in my pocket then sit on that for another year trying sell it.

    They are not worth anything either ..... LibreOffice is free to use.
    Used keyboard and mouse ...... free to 'good home' quite often.




  • How much for:

    i5 2500k
    8GB GSkill RipJaws-X CL9 DDR3 RAM.
    MSI Military P67A GD53
    Arctic Cooler Freezer 7


    Also getting around to selling my ASUS PRIME Z270P or my ASUS STRIX Z270F, any reason to keep one over the other in general? Both brand new, unused and the latter sells for more. Probably will keep the latter, it does seem better constructed.

    I've been offered €125 for the PC, monitor, keyboard & mouse. Do y'all think that's a decent amount? Given what you've all said :confused:




  • If take it mate and move on.




  • I've been thinking of upgrading to a new workstation/gaming PC soon but I need to know roughly how much I'd get for my old one so I can plan a budget out for a new one:

    Lenovo ThinkStation S30
    3.6GHz Xeon E5-1620
    16GB Buffered ECC DDR3 at 1333MHz (8x 2GB sticks in Quad Channel)
    GTX 970 GPU, 128GB Samsung 830 SSD with Windows 10 and a 1TB HDD

    Thanks in advance, Been trying to find similar specced systems online but asking prices vary dramaticly on different listings.

    Based on current system selling prices on adverts and the age, I'd say about 400, maybe a bit less or a bit more depending.
