    2nd hand components

    Ok dont know if this is allowed, im sure I'll get told off if its not.

    Just built my new system which has left me with
    Gigabyte 790XT-UD4P
    AMD x3 720 BE
    4GB OCZ Platinum 1600

    just wondering does it have a resell value and if it does what could I ask for it if I was to put it up on a certain well known auction site

    Price checks are fine, I'm far too far behind the times to comment on the value but someone should be able to give you a rough number for what they're worth.

    Re: 2nd hand components

    You usually do better selling the parts individually. Current Motherboards tend to be the item that seems to have the most markup Retail vs second hand in my experience.

    Look for the prices at new, and then take 20% off and that'll give you a start price. If it's not current, you might want to check Ebay for recent listings that have finished or are finishing soon to get an idea of value. I'm not with AMD pricing at the moment, sorry! Try Cat the Fifth....
