I have a Desktop PC that I'm not using I'd like to trade for a reasonable Laptop of similar Value. Box only no screen although I can provide a cordless mouse & keyboard as extra. Will be listing on trade me soon but I thought I'd try here first.

It's homebuilt from parts left over from a  few projects and new bits bought to finish off the build, everything is approx 6-12 months old and going well. I can find some receipts but not all. Has been barely used as it's a 2nd backup PC. Reasonably good mid level gamer. Parts were chosen as a cheap PC for taking to LAN parties but it never happened.

Bitfenix Prodigy Case (smaller than a mid tower, larger than most itx cases)
Cooler Master 450W PSU
Asrock B75 itx Motherboard
i3 3220 & Stock cooler
EVGA 650Ti boost (note this is much faster than a standard Ti and close to a 660 but not quite, hard to get graphics card now)
8 GB Dual channel Kingston RAM
Blu-ray reader/DVDRW
500 GB WD Blue hard drive
Windows 8 OEM version

If I sell on trademe I'll be trying for around $700, not sure how good that is but for any less I feel I should just keep it (I often regret selling PCs later)

PM me if interested, or just post here and I'll contact you.

Edit: I'm located in Hamilton so bear that in mind

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.
