Selling my rig

  1. Bought my old rig in Nov07, seen pretty much constant use since then. Now that ive bought a new one id like to know how much to try and sell my old one for?

    Antec 900 Nine Hundred Ultimate Gaming Case
    Intel Quad Q6600 2.4GHz CPU
    8800GTX 1GB GPU
    Asus Striker Extreme Mobo
    Seagate Barracuda 500GB
    Pioneer DVD-RW
    4GB DDR2 RAM

    Dont know what my power supply but it was used to do 2 8800 GTX's.

    Also my 2nd 8800GTX started recently to artifact, would i still be able to sell this seperately?

    Thanks for any help provided

    How much you would get for the system depends on what market/country you're in, and whether you're looking to sell the componentry seperately or as a whole system.
    A reasonable percentage of people who would buy the whole system would probably want an OS as well.

    The 8800GTX has a 768MB frame buffer- not 1GB

    If the second 8800GTX has started to artifact, then your likely buyer would purchase in order to attempt a home solder reflow (commonly: Bake your video card). I wouldn't expect to get too much for it, even though the chances of resurrecting the card are good, since there is time and effort involved in effecting the cure- as well as the chances that the reflow doesn't improve the card.
