Well, it is listed at $440 on PriceSpy. So somewhere around that.


I thought since mine doesn't come with warranty (local), it'd fetch a lil' less than that. But by how much that's what I wanted to know. Cheers.

The Samsung 830 256GB SSD for my gf's PC. When I can stick with either an Intel 520 or 330 SSD which I'd bought, as previously intended.

I know.... Use both in your rig in Raid0, put the 330 in your girlfriend's rig, and sell the Intel :D

Well, if you were guaranteeing it wasn't going to be DOA it would probably fetch around $350 – $400 assuming there was demand for it (i.e. that is what I'd probably consider it to be worth).

Yes. SSDs are so Customs friendly! Hehe... As long as it's under $400 (shipping incl). :)

You know what, I used to get stuff from the UK and it's A LOT cheaper than here. Funny when they're made in China and then travelled the world (CH > GB > NZ) and were still cheaper than local supply. Oh, well...

Wow this is a good idea for a thread.

How much would you guys rate a Phenom II 955 + Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H, and then with/without Crossfire 6850's?

They probably do anyway. Except they probably go to the manufactures' country from China before going anywhere else...

Probably around $300 – $400 for the CPU and motherboard. As above for the graphics.

I'll look at my TradeMe account and see how much I got for 880GA-UD3H and 955.

Edit: Damn I'm not able to see, it ended too long ago. I think you'd be very lucky to get >$300 for the CPU and MB. If I were you I'd sell each GPU individually, then the CPU and MB as a separate package. I'd probably expect as much as $220 for your cards, depending on the kind of competition on TradeMe, and around the same, perhaps up to $250, for your CPU and MB.

Ah okay, thanks. Yeah that's what I would expect too. Only problem is, assuming I can get ~$700 for it all, is that that leaves me with another $600+ to find for new components. Might as well just stick with what I have until a sale happens or prices drop...

Personally I think the 6850's are worth keeping. The money from your CPU/MB would at least get you a Z77 or 990FX Motherboard, which is a start I guess

Yeah. I am kinda fond of my old 6850's.. little beasts. :) I'm also thinking of getting a new case, selling my CM Storm Scout. I could try and sell them to my brother but since he's 13 he has next to no money...

Does anyone have / has had experience with the Linksys WAG120N wireless router?
If so what did you think of it? Would it be a bargain at $50 since the cheapest one on here is around $89

You gonna keep your 2500k?

*$150 on the MB. $50/$60 on the RAM. You should just keep your optical.. $240 max on the 6870.


*My opinion.

Yeah, looks like I will keep my 2500K, unless I can be convinced to go to the 2011 platform. Aka the 3820 chip. In anticipation for the IB-E's.

The case would be around $200 new, with an unmodded second-hand value of probably something like $150. Whether the modding adds or removes value is very much dependent on the purchaser, and could range from a moderate reduction to a significant increase...

*My opinion.

Definitely keep the DVD drive. Keep the RAM too. And the motherboard if you're keeping the CPU.

But yet, you didn't do my one. <_<

Sapphire 6870. Good condition, running solid as! Great for pooning some noobs in BF3! [Might already have found an owner for this so just want to see what people think I should get for it]


I sold my HD6870 Vapor-X's for $300 ea a few months ago if it helps. Shouldn't be a hard sale since some want it for a CrossFire setup. Good luck.

Haha but the other values were roughly what I would have said, and frankly I am terrible at picking out approximate valuations.

I personally would keep a DVD drive, as it is very useful for if you have any old software discs sitting around that you ever want to use, but then I personally have such discs so I'm biased... And it would be much easier for installing Windows (or any OS for that matter) as they come on a DVD, so you avoid having to either borrow a drive or use another computer to transfer it to a memory stick – but I guess as long as you already have it installed it doesn't matter either.
