Well part of it is people who just need a specific part for a reason like I know my friend sold a motherboard case on there for 80 dollars but the guy just needed the case because his was dropped and did not look nice. I bought a Toshiba cd-rom on there for $110 and the manufacture wanted almost $250 so sometimes people pay a lot but are still saving money.

OMG, not ebay, terrible place to buy computer parts. Not worth the trouble and besides NewEgg beats ebay any day of the week. But it sure is a great place to find those old PS2 games I've broken over the years and want to replay.

But yeah dude, sell it as a whole, and see if it has people bidding for like 200~250$ for it.

Ebay actually has a lot of hard to find parts, and you can get very good deals.

I know but everything is in Auctions which for the life of me I could not win even if I tried. As well as the shipping and handling, but you are right, seeing how I m moving to Canada soon. Ebay will soon become my bestest of friends, not that I like buying computer parts ebay, EVER!!!
