Default Price this System

Hello Everyone,

I am thinking of possibly selling my PC I built. I was wondering what price to put it at. The components are listed below.

CPU: I5-3570K
PSU: CORSAIR 650TX
MOBO: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA
RAM:GeIL EVO Veloce Series 8GB
GPU: EVGA SSC GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB
SSD: Intel 520 Series 120gb
HDD: 740 WD
Monitor: Acer H233H
OS: Fresh Install of Either Windows 8 or Windows 7 with Office Pro 2010
Logitech Keyboard and Mouse both wireless can be added if it would help.

I wasn't sure where to put this post so if the mods can adjust the location that would be great.

Please let me know your thoughts on pricing this build. I am looking to by a motorcycle and selling this would be a great down payment.

Parting out would probably be easier. Most people on CL want to haggle the crap out of you and custom sites like this one and others want to buy new. You might be able to get what you want out of parting out over on TPU.

No they never get that much. I see the same rigs on Cl every day with ridiculous prices. Then 2 weeks later price drop is in the title.

they might get lucky and get that much from someone who just wants a computer and doesnt want to put the research into it. they see a $2k computer on CL and think " oh its 2 grand, it must be good ".

stupid people pay more
