    How much for this rig ?

    Be upgrading very soon so after some advice on what to do with the old comp.

    Do I :

    1) Sell the bits individually
    2) Sell it without any disks or put an old 300GB HD in and a Linux OS

    Mate of mine has offered me £150 and would be happy to put his own HD in. Does that sound like a fair price ?

    Here's the spec :

    CPU
    Intel Q6600 G0 2.4ghz

    Cooling
    Cooler Master Hyper 212

    Motherboard
    Asus P5Q Deluxe

    Memory
    Corsair XMS2 DDR2 Twin2X 4x 1GB

    Graphics Card
    8800GT 512mb

    PSU
    CoolerMaster 650W

    Case
    Thermaltake XavierV

    Monitor
    Dell 19" LCD

    LD DVD/CDrw

    Multi Card reader

    You'd get slightly more for it as individual parts but then you're not guaranteed to sell it all and you have to pay postage.

    £150 seems reasonable as a complete system, if he is a friend.

    It's 4.98*

    What PeterStoba siad.

    I tried to sell all the parts from my old system on ebay but not all got sold so now I am left with half a pc.

    So yes you could get more for parts but aleast this way everything not needed will go.

    I have just sold some similar components on Hexus, and got £75 for my Q6600, £40 for 4Gb DDR2 RAM, and £60 for my P5Q Deluxe. So that is £175 for just the main components. If you let your mate have the complete system for £150, he'd be getting a huge bargain!

    have to agree with this^^^^^^

    the Q6600 is very popular £70-£80
    the p5q deluxe is the best socket 775 motherboard £50-£60
    8800gt is £30 ish
    psu £30-£40
    hiper 212 £10
    Ram 4 x £10 (£40)
    case ????
    monitor ????

    that will sell for £200 as a complete system

    if he knows more about computers than you, he may be taking advantage of you.
