I'll post the specs of the computer and what is included for a rough estimate of how much I should sell it for..


CPU - AMD Phenom(tm) 9950 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs), ~2.6GHz
MB(Motherboard) - Gigabyte M61PME-S2 (Could use an upgrade......)
RAM -  2x 2GB DDR800 Ram Chips
Graphics Card -  ATI Radeon HD 5750 512 MB
PowerSupply - AYWUN Eco-Friendly 550W  
Monitor - 22" Wide Screen AOC 

Don't really feel like going into depth with the components but thats all you basically need to know..

At a guess, id say $800 to $1000 but i really don't know. Your best bet would be to look at comparable computers that are selling on trademe.

Depends greatly on the brands, but for the most budget brand, I would say the actual PC without the monitor would be in the $500 region, if not less. It would be a budget range PC.


PS. That is the price of a brand new PC with those sorts of specs. If you were selling second hand, perhaps 3-4 hundred with the monitor included, as it wouldn't have a warrenty. You would have a lot of competition in that range. You would probably make more selling the parts.

I think you would be better off selling the video card on its own as well as the monitor to get you more money.

I would say $800 for the entire package.

If you were to build something like this from scratch, I think you'd have to pay $1500 for the parts. Which would include Keyboard, monitor, mouse and a version of XP/Vista, basically the works.

You should get at least $750 for it, maybe more if the right buyer came along. I wouldn't think there'd be all that many buyers out there, looking to throw $750 at a machine with no guarantees.

Have you seen the cost of parts these days, you can build a similar system for well under 1G, and AMD isn't as attractive to buyers as intel. AMD is seen as the budget brand, as is AOC.

If selling on GZ...

Use www.gearbot.co.nz to determine the cost of the parts (or equivalent parts) as new then times the total by 0.66 to take off a 1/3 on account of it being second hand/used.

If selling on Trademe...

Take the total based on prices from gearbot then times by 1.10 on account of people who buy computers from trademe being morons!

But these are older and second hand parts, and possibily no name budget parts too, and even if they are still avaliable today. If you go to pricespy, you can build an i5 for around $1k using todays componets. I know because I have just built one, so am familar with the pricing. However that is buying from the cheapest retailers.

Personally i don't bring the cheapest retailers into the equation.

Either way, looking at the prices other computers sell for is your best bet.

Maybe $1500 new was a bit steep.

Case....................65
PSU......................65
Motherboard........100
CPU....................100
Video Card..........200
Hard Drive............75
Hard Drive 2.........50
RAM...................150
Monitor...............250
Mouse/Keyboard...30
OS.....................125
SATA Leads etc....10

Total...............1,220

This is assuming I had a computer shop within walking distance, that sold all those/similar components at current rock bottom prices.
