    Morning guys,

    I'm thinking of upgrading my PC. What do you think my current parts are worth (individually):

    Athlon 4400 X2 S939
    Abit AN8 SLI Fatality S939
    2x 1Gb Geil Value DDR 400
    2x 7800GTX 256Mb cards

    Cheers,
    Jed.

    i would say approx

    £80 or so for the cpu
    £30/40 for the motherboard
    £70/80 for the ram
    £70/80/90 for the gtx's each.

    something like that anyway.

    I doubt you'd get £80 or £90 for the Graphics cards.
    When I'm selling stuff, I always go on ebay and do a search for 'completed listings' to get a reasonably clear idea of how much it'll sell for.

    right heres some bad news.

    RAM £30 tops (you can get 2gb of pc3200 on ebay for £35 brand new)
    GFX £45-55 each?
    Mobo and CPU.. well mobo might not be worth too much, £30-£50
    CPU however can be a nice upgrade for anyone still on 939 so could be anywhere from £50-£100

    However check local papers, locals who dont know too much about PCs and just want a nice performing machine might part with more if sold as is

    Tell me about it, I've currently got a 3200+ in my HTPC and would like to upgrade. Nearly as cheap to go for a new system :(

    If you're logged in, there's a tickbox in the search options that says "completed auctions" - I think.

    You need to be logged in, then click advanced search, there you'll see the 'completed listings only' box.
