Friend's selling a PC (Price opinions/Interest?)

What's going on TekSyndicate forum,

My friend Cary is currently in the process of trying to sell a gaming PC that was built for the purpose of, you guessed it, selling for a profit.

It's a pretty common budget build with an FX4130 and a Radeon HD 7770 1GB. The price to performance of these parts is quite good.

I'm posting this here to get some opinions on pricing as well as seeing if anyone here would be interested in purchasing it.

This weekend (Possibly) we will be doing an overhaul of the cable management and the overall internal aesthetics of the system to hopefully make it more desirable.

He currently has it on eBay for a starting bid of $399.99 and Buy-It-Now for $550.00 which isn't unreasonable.

Thanks in advance you guys.



AMD FX4130

Radeon HD 7770 1GB

ASRock 970 AM3+

8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz

Seagate 500GB 7200RPM HDD

I believe a CX500

Possibly a WiFi card if we can add one this weekend

First of all, the BST forum is not for advertising Ebay or Craigslist posts, and secondly, $400 is pretty high for that rig. You could buy a better rig new with that.

My apologies, completely forgot about the no eBay thing :D

So, do you think it would be possible to get around $400 for it though? Maybe not from someone on the forums but from someone else if you understand what I'm getting at?

While it is somewhat overpriced, judging by the other offerings on Ebay, $400 for that is not too unrealistic.  I would strongly advise you to flesh out the description out a lot, with a full parts list, along with the features and specs of key parts. Also, I would omit the fact that it has been overclocked, I don't know about others on this forum, but I tend to get nervous about buying parts that have been OC'd, especially on a cheap setup like that. In addition, if there are any OC's still present on the machine, be sure to reset them.

Alright, thanks for the suggestions. I'll be sure to relay them to him.

Buy now price for 550?

Sure, a little bit of a processor bottleneck; still relevant.
