    rcoon i think you might have more luck if you split it up tbh dude :)

    a lot of hardware yes but also a lot of cash to drop all at once.

    if you do split let me know what you want for your cooling :D

    best of luck with the sale dude :D

    I would happily split the hardware up usually, except I need a working PC at the same time. I cant sell bits off and then have half a PC that doesnt work. Not to mention it's an all or nothing job, I dont particularly want to sell a load off, and then have 2 or 3 components that nobody wants to buy stuck on my hands.

    EDIT: If I can find buyers for all of the parts, or equate to something like that, I'd do that too, but it requires organising that I dont think is quite possible :D

    You can sell them in chunks: Water cooling, motherboard+ram+cpu, etc. Once you sell your watercooling and the 780 you should be able to build yourself a budget rig, and then the rest can be done slowly.

    It may come down to that, though I'd rather see if any decent interest is shown for the whole system.

    Hey mate, sorry to hear about your cash worries. That being said it's a shame that when it comes to your PC you can't 'pass it on'. I tend to sell on TPU so fellow TPU'ers can benefit from excellent 2nd hand branded stuff at silly prices. I know you didn't intend to buy my case and rads and stuff to sell on but hey, it's a shame you are so soon.

    Sorry for being an ethical arsehole but i figure you should have sold it in parts back to fellow TPU'ers. I sold £450 worth of kit (case rads, fans, barbs) for £250 (inc postage). I always sell at a huge loss to let other guys get good kit.

    I don't mean any disrespect but selling your stuff on TPU always seems like the 'right' thing to do. And ethics aside, you'll be paying and instant £160 fee to ebay plus any paypal fees so straight away you're dropping £200 from your asking price.

    And you don't lose by selling on TPU first. What you don't sell on TPU, then you can ebay the fuck out of the normal idiot population.

    Anyway, good luck with the sale, hope things work out for you (and i do mean that). :toast:

    Thanks buddy, I put it on TPU far cheaper than fleabay. And if all else fails I'll probably sell the parts on here (I know plenty of people have shown interest). Sent off the 780 for RMA, so when that comes back and gets sold I can buy a little APU system and then sell off the big kit. I'd definitely much rather sell it on here, simply because I trust everyone here, and they wont accidentally break the stuff and complain.

    Ah sorry mate, I didn't realise you'd put it up on TPU too. :eek:

    This is for me :slap:

    Well, in that case, extra good luck with the sale and if nobody sees the value in that, well f*ck, blame George Osborne for shafting us all.

    You can say Mr Brown shafted us all and Osborne couldn't fix the mess he left. I would be interested if you are selling 2 months ago, but right now I am more or less finished with my first rig and my second is almost there.

    Well, i don't want to get political but the mess wasn't Brown's. He simply resided over it's final calamitous downfall and sold all our gold off to buy some time. It all started back in the 90's with a cultural shift towards unabated spiraling personal debt supported by shadowy banking practices.

    No one has any balls to do anything here, preferring to throw money at the problem until symptoms abate. Ah well, its the same for a lot of countries.

    The whole tax system is amusing to me. I'd happily pay an extra penny in the pound in tax to help combat our deficit and if this was repeated across the entire spectrum of working adults, the treasury would raise a huge amount.
    But folk just hate the notion of TAX RISE!!!!! as if it's going to really hurt. Anybody over a 20k income can easily realistically afford a £200 annual (£3.85/week at 20k income) deduction.

    Emotive issues....

    I don't mind contributing my share to fix the deficit, but on the other hand I am not too happy if my extra contribution goes to waste which seems to be the case right now.

    Yup, if you have seen the breakdown on what the government is spending on its horrifying. How can a country ever allow payment to debt interest outstrip defence, and why are they spending so much on health? It reeks of inefficiencies everywhere. I am not going to start with social protection and low skilled workers sucking the money out instead of letting it spin inside the country.

    Totally just got given a 1% payrise today, that's going to be backdated to April. It might not be much, but it's a start!

    So far he's said he'll attempt to buy a private courier to pick up and drop off (but keep the PC in the front seat). I told him I could knock off plenty if he bought outside of Ebay (Damn 10% fees), still waiting to hear back.
