Default Re: Computer Value Degradation

I read it man...trust me i feel your pain.

Thats why we upgrade frequently so everything holds value.

I dont build full systems over and over, i upgrade parts individually so i can get the most back. Ill be using the same psu, mobo, cpu, and hard drive for a bit longer. Just gonna upgrade the case and cpu cooler soon...then the gpu.

Once deneb comes out if it doesnt run right on my board, ill just sell off the board and my dual core and grab me a new mobo to run the phenom.

If you wait to long...everything depreciates quickly. Never sell your system as a whole...parting out you get more back.

I still have my old pentium 4 2.8 ghz with a agp 256mb x800 xl thats sitting around in my room doing nothing...I doubt I can even get $100 for that
You would be surprised. I sold a pc chips mobo with an Athlon XP 2800+ for $90 shipped on ebay. I paid $150 for that bundle new and used it for over a year.

I bought a 2GB G-Skill DDR ram kit from a member here for $30 and sold it for $55 on ebay..after i used it for a couple months. I sold an x1650xt on ebay for almost the same price i bought it for, and it was used a couple months as well.
