    Upgrading this week. How much shall i sell my current things for

    Here goes:
    Q6600 (GO Stepping) - Comfortable and cool at <60 degrees load
    Abit iX38 Quad GT M'Board - I love it, and the bells and whistle still run
    4 x 1gb OCZ Platinum DDR2
    EVGA GTX260 - Seems to handle things like LFD2 comfortably
    Scythe Mine - (best air cooler i have EVR had)

    Everyting is very looked after and 100% working and perfect.
    All ideas appreciated guys.

    My guestemations

    Q6600 - £40-50
    Abit iX38 - £30-40
    4GB RAM - £20-30
    GTX260 - £30-40
    Cooler - £5-10

    Withing the bracket move the amount around depending physical condition and whatever packagina/gumpf you have

    EDIT by Saracen

    This is not a For Sale thread, and not the right place for offers.

    If you have an offer to make, please either wait for an advert in the correct forum, or at least be discrete enough to make an offer by PM.

    I'd say 10-15 for the cooler, the old scythe mine is still a great cooler and you can still fit it on the newer sockets with the right clips (AFAIK scythe use the same clip on mounts for all their coolers)

    I'd say 40-50 for the GTX260 esp if it's the 2nd version with more cores

    You might be able to get more for the motherboard as the Abit iX38 wasn't a common or low end one, an x48 board would of been worth more though.

    Also depends where you're selling it

    Ref iX38. You are right, its a great board, and was probably the highest end 775 for DDR2. I just looked on ebay and even a replacement Bios chip is >£10. That was suprising.

    Not sure whether to put it in the local paper, or just go to FS here.
    I will have a think, and post something up tomorrow maybe.

    Cheers fellas

    If it were me i would use the for sale here, always been a good experience for me... i hate resorting to things liek ebay

    I wouldnt have thought the local paper would reach that many people with the knowledge to know what they are getting... or is that the point?

    Q6600 goes for about £50/75 on eBay, so anything over £50 sounds good I guess.

    Re: Upgrading this week. How much shall i sell my current things for

    I've just sold some simmiar age parts on Gumtree and Ebay:
    - E8400 - £49,
    - Asus P5E - £50,
    - 2x Corsair XMS2 DHX DDR2 cl4 2x2GB - £40 each,
    - Evga GTX9800 SC - £47.

    Best way to check prices is to look in current / recently finished auctions on Ebay. Put your items on Gumtree (free), wait a week or two, then post remaning parts on Ebay.

    I was posting on Gumtree for four weeks and sold MB only. On Ebay sold rest within a week.
