As the header states, would you sell it in a bundle and perhaps keep the important stuff (Harddrives) or would you tear it in parts and perhaps list up the parts individually?
Screen $400
CPU$500
etc.

Thanks!!

Depends - are you upgrading or have a completely new machine ?

If upgrading, then hold onto parts you can use in the newer system.

You could get more for individual parts, however can take longer to sell and you may end up with parts you have to bin.

Selling complete, is easier to sell but the value drops slightly.

Another option is to sell whole - but, 'downgrade' first by replacing any good components with poorer components that you may have lying around. But,without crippling the machine either.

Then, you can sell your PC, and reuse or sell the stripped components.

I've got an of old PC lying around, can't be bothered selling as I'd need to make GST adjustments/depreciation and they are not worth much anyway -really the admin cost of selling outweighs the benefits of the sale cash --- occasionally comes in handy as a 'test' platform though.

I have parts that were released at the start of the year so It's not really an old machine to be honest
