    Pricecheck - some socket 775 parts

    Having a bit of trouble getting an accurate price on this given the lack of ebay listings + hexus threads on it.

    Q9550 seems to be going for around £140-ish on ebay, but that seems a bit high to me. Maybe around £120?

    X48-DS4, no idea really, maybe £45?

    HX620, guessing £60-70.

    4GB Corsair XMS2, either 6400 or 8500, guessing approx £35.

    Thermalright Ultra-Extreme 120, presuming it's worth very little.

    Any thoughts? I really don't have a clue

    Okay, cheers. Prices on eBay are all over the place with this stuff, almost impossible to get a straight number on any of it!

    I'd agree with you if it was DDR3 but it's not. I'd say around £30 is more like it.

    The TRUE is over £30 still at many retailers and is a current heatsink. The only thing is that newer ones may come with additional mounting brackets.

    Re: Pricecheck - some socket 775 parts

    How long ago was that? Any time in the last six months and I'd say you did!

    I'm inclined to agree with the other estimates on pricing, including the no idea on the Q9550! Is it really worth two Q6600s? Performance is about on a par with a Phenom II X4 955BE! I suppose it's one of the best processors you can get for a s775 upgrade, but given the performance and age I don't think I'd part with more than about £90 for one...?

    Re: Pricecheck - some socket 775 parts

    Ah, then it was probably about right - DDR2 was still pretty cheap back that far (iirc!). Then DDR3 dropped through the floor and DDR2 started climbing up...

    That's what I'm thinking. I have a feeling it may be similar to the old socket 939 situation (hope I'm right there, never had an AMD system pre-Phenom). If you've got an old socket 775 machine and want to drop in an upgrade there's not much out there that's better, aside from the extreme chips.

    One went for £150 on eBay which seems absolutely crazy.

    I suppose it depends how you want to sell it then. If you just go straight to the 'bay it sounds like you'll get top dollar for it, but then you've got the hassle of dealing with ebay, fees, etc. If you go the forum route you might get less for it, because we're all far too sensible to fall for the hype

    After all, for £150 you can get an A6-3670K, a cheap FM1 motheboard and 4GB of 1600MHz DDR3...

    One word: bargepole

    I just don't trust people on eBay. At least I know that on here, if I sell something, the person at the other end will in all probability tell the truth about whether it arrived or not, and have the ability not to destroy it and blame me. Or pretend it's not working. Zak ages ago sold a chip on eBay that the buyer said was faulty, I agreed to test it for him and it worked perfectly. And it still does. So no, I'm not expecting £150 - and even factoring in my usual eBay -> Hexus conversion rate, I don't think I'd get close to the £150 equivalent value.

    You'll swap it to me for a bargepole? Sounds like a deal!
