Not looking to sell (yet) but just interested in what people think it'd go for if I was to sell in todays market......

 

Reason for selling would be that I'm getting too old/lazy to lug the damn thing (its a massive case) to mates for occasional LAN's, be nicer to pick up a single bag and go ;) And I'm not planning on playing the latest stuff - so looking at options for basic gaming laptop.

 

Full system specs here - https://pastebin.com/TEfQ0PTT

Case : CM Stacker 830 - Has had bit of a rough life but pretty much in one piece (it was in a shed which got taken out by a tornado) - does not have internal fan mounting trays that they came with originally. Has single front fan, 1 top fan (both red LED). Missing two front 5.25" drive bay covers (but cant see that due to front cover)

 

DVD Writer mounted but not connected

 

PSU : Think its a Corsair 600W (will have to confirm)

 

CPU Cooler : https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/cpu-liquid-coolers/masterliquid-pro-120/

 

SSD's aren't exactly mounted, just sitting in the drive bays.

 

 

 

Currently mainly used for gaming. Overwatch runs at 100FPS on Ultra quite happily, has pretty much run everything I've thrown at it at decent quality and FPS.

 

Think thats it...... yes its an "old" system, but has done me well, and still keeps up with everything most of my mates with newer systems do.

Not much man.. maybe $4-500 on a good day and most of that's the GPU.

 

That CPU is 7 generations old and a budget Ryzen 3 will outperform it. DDR3 is cheap as chips, brand new 240gb SSD's can be had for sub $50, case/dvd is basically worthless.

Yup 👍 I would agree , imo probably better to part out the graphics card and put the rest of the system up as a $1 reserve on Trademe. $200 - $230 for the graphics card alone I would guess.

Suggest if you do $1 reserve on Trademe, make it simple for buyer and put in shipping costs, also connect all drives and DVD so you have C:, D:, E:, F: etc.
