HowardHopkinso, thanks for the kind words. Im really upset that the for sale section is gone. In the end, it would have eventually been a section that would draw more people to this forum. Forums need help to pay for their costs and people who use the "for sale" section realize what a valuable resource it is and they tend to contribute more, financially and otherwise, to the whole forum. I just see it as such a great opportunity in so many ways and i dont understand why others dont feel the same way. I havent been buying and selling too much lately and so i wandered over to this forum. I like it but as soon as i start buying and selling again, i will be over at forums that have a "for sale" section. Its because i need such a thread. I dont like ebay and there are many others who dont. And those who use other forums for buying and selling find out that forums are best for this and are far, far better than ebay! But at this point its gone so i am wasting my time. I realize that but.... aw, never mind, lol. awsskater892, it seems to me, and i could be wrong, but i believe there is too great a discrepancy between what you could get selling the pc as a unit and what you have stated you can get by selling the parts piece by piece. In addition to that, of course, you have to consider the time involved in setting up a bunch of ebay postings, added cost too i think, and, likely more importantly, you will be spending more time packaging your parts and spending more money on shipping. In the end, one will always make more money selling the parts individually, and usually also end up keeping the case as an added bonus. Its just that i dont know if you will get the top dollar you are describing for your parts. I could be wrong though. I am posting in this thread because there has been ongoing discussions of different things other than the original reason for this thread.
