    Hiya,
    About a 3 years ago I bought a desktop designed for gaming, Now I wish to sell it since my studies are taking a huge toll on my gaming habit and I need a good laptop to be there for me while in college.

    So I was wondering what a good price is to sell this desktop for:

    So basically a Sandy Bridge i5, NVidia GTX 560, 8GB RAM, 1.5TB HDDs...
    Maybe $600.

    600 is a stretch for new parts, maybe 550 is more realistic.

    Thanks! I was unsure if I was on the right price but now I'm assured I'm not asking too much,

    Does anyone know any good sites to sell second hand desktops in the Netherlands aside from Marktplaats? not getting too much luck around there.

    My personal opinion is that you would take a LONG time to wait for the right person to pay more than 500 in one go. I would try and sell the components by themselves and then, if you have any, find cheap spare parts and build it up and sell it as a cheap basic desktop.

    Yeah $500 sounds good, and throw in some chips and a soda. XD.

    What he said. You could try throwing $500 out there and take some really attractive shots with benchmark scores, but if that doesn't work you may need to drop it down to $450-$475. What did it cost when you bought it?
