Default Wher is the best place to sell Custom built computer?

Like the name says, where do you guys recommend selling custom computers for the most profit and fastest selling? Should I go eBay? Or craigslist? Any ideas would be great!

Thanks

You can either sell it as a whole, or part it out. Parting out can sometimes be faster, especially if you post 'em on forums rather than eBay.

I think he means buying the parts off Newegg, throwing it together. Then OC'ing it to make the clueless amazed....

Really is a good idea if you have $700 laying around.

I would have to say ebay also.

Actually not like that one.. it was a Skulltrail mobo, with "4 overclocked quads totaling over 40GHz" lol. Oh, and it apparently had quad-SLI.

Protip: the Skulltrail isn't released yet, not to mention a few months ago when this happened.

Like several people mentioned before, this is a pretty high risk thing to get into.

Parts depreciate so quickly that if you dont sell it in a short period of time, youll end up taking a loss on it.

Your much better off building to order.

You are wrong quad sli exists with two known nvidea cards, and just about any mobo thats nforce supports quad
and the new 9800 gx or w/e will also b quad sli compatible
