My Gaming PC - Help on value for selling...

Hi all,

Couldn't think of anywhere better to ask than AV for some help...

I have a gaming PC, had it for a good few years now, still preforms very well even with the latest games, not at 4K so much, but still runs the likes of Microsoft FLight Sim at 1080p and 60fps.

Thing is, I'm just not using it anymore these days and wondered if it's worth more to sell things separately or as a complete PC.

Specs are as follows...it was pre built by PC Specialist Limited.

ZOTAC Nvidia GeForce GTX 980Ti (6GB DDR5)
16GB DDR4 RAM
Intel Core i7 6700K [email protected]
240GB Kingston SSD
1TB Toshiba HDD

I have no idea what to put it up for sale for, or if it's worth more to sell the GTX card on it's own!

Can anyone offer some advice please?

ZOTAC Nvidia GeForce GTX 980Ti (6GB DDR5
£200
16GB DDR4 RAM
Need more information. Brand? Speed? RGB or not
£120, maybe more with an aftermarket cooler
240GB Kingston SSD
1TB Toshiba HDD
£40, maybe £50 for both

You obviously have the motherboard, case and PSU which could add some on top. You are probably looking between £400-500 for everything.

There is one in classifieds with 980ti gpu and amd cpu I think at £700. You could compare your specs

I could put my rig in the classifieds for £10,000.
Doesn't mean I'm going to get £10,000.
The 980ti goes for about £200 on ebay, this is where I got my price from. The CPU price came from CEX, and the rest isn't worth much (RAM, again needs more information)

I agree totally, may put it up for sale for £400 which is reasonable I guess, I just don't use it anymore, and have lost touch with the value of things like this these days.

I ran CPU-Z for the memory thing, does that help at all?

Your RAM isn't running at full speed 😁
If you click on SPD that will have the RAM information

My old system is pretty much identical to yours, only difference is a 970 instead of a 980. I looked recently at selling it and judging by what they were going for on Ebay, I estimated it would go for about £250 - £300.

SO £400 would seem a good starting point for your system, but be prepared to drop it a bit to get the sale.

Well, managed to sell the PC and got £350 for it on a local FB selling page :) so very happy in the end.

Thanks for the help from everyone.
