Exclamation My Dual Core SLI Gaming System

I recently built this computer for playing games, but i decided to not waste $1500 on a computer and instead focus on my studies. So now I am trying to sell <removed> on ebay.

I am just curious...would anyone pay over $1500 for this because I would hate to lose my money.

But maybe if it doesn't go over $1500 I can just keep it. On one hand, I don't want to waste money, but on the other I can't bear to give up a system that plays hl2 on the highest settings with over 100fps

I would pay maybe $800 for that

You aren't going to get what you paid for it though, I'll tell you that

If the price doesn't hit 1500, you can't NOT keep it. THeres no reserve price meaning you can't withdraw the item if your wanted bid isn't reached, therefore when the auction ends, you HAVE to sell the item or else you can get sued by the winning party =)

Ebay, har har har
