    Alrighty, to make some money (and room, especially room), I'm selling a spare rig. Not here on TPU, as 99.999% of the users here do not live in Switzerland, and shipping costs would ruin you. Now, I am not sure how much I can ask for it... here are the specs:

    Case: Silverstone Fortress
    CPU: Core2Duo E6300 1.86GHz (I will offer free oc if wished)
    GPU: Radeon HD3850
    RAM: Kingston Value, 667MHz 4GB
    PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower 750W
    Motherboard: Asus P5Q-E incl. Manual
    CPU Cooling: Scythe Katana 2
    HD: 160GB Western Digital SATA
    Accessoirs: 1x Scythe Slip Stream 500rpm / Zalman Fan Controller / Scythe Kama Bay 3x5.25" Fan / SATA DVD writer / cables, adapters, cds and connectors that came with the stuff / Wireless keyboard & mouse by Thrust (el cheapo, so I probably will throw that in free if wished)

    Cable management done & case will be delivered in original package.

    I plan on selling it for 800 CHF (about 520 USD). Can I ask more, or should I ask less for it? Parts are all pretty much new & barely used, except for PSU and CPU.

    I was thinking in my head a figure of about $500 when I was reading the list of things...

    550$ max here in US, In Switzerland, I'm guessing you can strech it to 600$ US, but if you want to sell fast, your price is right on

    Everything new, assuming the lowest price, will be 1200+ CHF / 770 USD

    800 CHF would be a good deal then. I remember living in Lugano, getting computer parts was an expensive adventure.

    1200 is new, then 800 is about right. Maybe 900 for the fact is built

    Cool. I'm sure there are people who would pay near 2000 CHF for this, as I've seen many many offers like this. Crap for way to much, and people buy it. But I do not want to betray people, this is why I am asking here.

    So about 800-900. Lets see if someone buys that thing then. Thanks you guys!
