I only accept paypal and I am only shipping in the US.

-Halo 3 limited Edition $50 + shiping (this week only)

I opened it once and tested the cds and they are fine I have it because my friend was supposed to let me barrow his 360 but it didn't work out since the 360 wasn't his. Anyway I want to get rid of it to put the money on my new system. Also the price is negotiable.

-I might add some pc parts later.

So I'm getting a new system to Sell on ebay (maybe) and this is what I have. If you guys could tell me how much it would be worth and how much of a profit I can make out of it. Keep in mind Its all brand new!

How much did you spend on it (I saw you got the PSU for nothing). Logically, you should get $1400 with those parts, realistically it could be well below that. I had a look at the completed auctions on ebay and there is no real comparison to make, since 99% of the listings are buy-it-now only's, and the others don't meet reserves. You are probably better off selling the individual parts seperately, rather than the complete system. Lets face it, AMD is not exactly a hot item, regardless of "Spider platform". Unless you get two or more Fanboys wanting EXACTLY your system, and are willing to pay for it, you could be looking at a loss, but again, there is no history to compare an auctioned off private system. Those in the know will likely want to build their own system with specific parts they like(ie - they may hate your case/OS choice), and those who don't know will not like not having warranty support on the system. It's going to be a crapshoot I think, but good luck, and I would make sure to put a reserve or start at a high opening bid.:toast:

Actully the pc is worth about $1800 I got the psu for 40 new though because I had 280 in points on a credit card. I was just wondering though thanks for the help and of course im going to put a reserve price.

there is a huge difference between " retail " and " ebay " pricing, the unit is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. that being said, with comparable units with some better tech choices in the case would be equally performing and less cost. also, depending on the sellers supplier and pricing can undercut you on pricing. Builders, gamers, and techies in the know will know the parts, and like stated above most likely buy SOME parts but will not be happy with the full outfit. if buying parts off the egg and reselling the system made worthwhile profits, you would see a bunch more than their is.

i've sold on eBay for 5 years or so and can tell you, with what it is listed there i would not expect to see much more than $1000, if at no reserve, and you get enough intetested bidders in that specific config. we cannot tell you what kind of profit to expect without knowing how much you spent, but you would make more selling it in pieces.
