    Advice required from pc pricing experts

    I'm having to buy a laptop for gaming as i'm moving house so have to clear away my PC from the bedroom so it looks bigger.

    As moving may take some time i've decided to buy a laptop and sell my desktop to help fund the new purchase.

    I was wondering if you guys had suggestions for how much my PC would be worth.

    Here is the spec, minus the SSD I'm keeping.

    Thanks in advance.

    You will want single rail PSU nowadays. Multi rail design requires more work on regulation which a lot of manufacturers cannot be bothered to pay attention. If you don't mind me asking, why you need 800W for your build? A poorly made 800W does not even match a decent 500W! Spend at least £50 on a PSU and get a decent one. It will pays off itself in long run. Do not be tricked by the wattage it claims - check the max (combined) current on 12V. You will see 36-40A on 12V for a 500W-ish PSU. That is pretty much everything you would need for single GPU setup. Even if you overclock a lot, 600W should be enough.

    What I would do is; try individually checking the price of each part and reducing the price by what you think would work, then at the end add a small fee, say £50 for it being all pre-built and there you should have a price. Also don't forget any legal software like operating systems that might be included.
