Hi all i have finally come to the conclusion of selling my long loved custom gaming PC and i'm just wondering what details i would need to post as a description of the PC. The PC cost me £2,500 when i brought it a few years back and because i'm now working all the time i just don't have the time to be using this machine to its full potential let alone half it potential so i'm looking at selling this one and getting a cheaper one. Thank you for your help with this issue.

FE will tell you that we are unable to advise on the value of Second Hand Computers.

If you have had it for several years, you may be lucky to get 10% of its purchase cost, if you can sell it at all. Gamers all want the latest kit.

Selling it in parts may be a better option

If you're selling it, you need to list all of the specs of the pc, any damage, what extra's you're including etc.. As said we can't provide any advice on how much to ask, but do that on ebay and gumtree and see what offers come through. I would also say selling the components individually may be better in terms of money back.

thank you for your response its not a price quote im after it's just i need to no what specs i need to upload about it i no i need state; graphics card, RAM, motherboard, hardrive and the mouse and keyboard but im not sure what else i need to state with it, im selling the whole thing monitor and all. That's a good idea though selling the individual parts i think i may have too look into doing that. and that's a good point about gamers always wanting the latest specs. so yeah i need to state, graphics card, motherboard, hardrive, RAM, mouse, keyboard, monitor, processor, is there anything i have missed that i should be putting down in the description?

Don't forget the Case, that is one of the few things that retain their value

You will not get £1250 for it. Such is the progress of PC hardware that you will get a faster brand new machine for less.

ahh okay then thank you for the advice do you have any recommendations? maybe £999?
