This is the build in question:
Although still quite powerful in terms of performance (Firestrike @ 25573) I am wondering if this is worth peanuts given that used hardware is not really worth much on the market. A friend of mine reckons this would only sell for $300 or $400 on eBay. He recently sold a 1080TI i7-7700K on eBay and it sold for $400. This PC is surplus to requirements in my house (I already have three builds not including my wife's PC), would $600 be a reasonable asking price? To be honest I am quite freaked out and thinking of not even selling it. I have no idea how a used Alienware computer could still flip for 70% retail but a state of the art build with twice the specs be worth less than a quarter the cost.
How would parting it out work out?
