Basically I am finding myself become less and less involved in PC Gaming. It has been ages since I've played a game. I want to sell one of my systems and wondering how much I could sell it for.

These are the specs as follows
i3-3220
Asus P8H77-M LE
8GB DDR3
320GB Seagate barracuda and a 1TB Caviar Green
GTX 660 2GB Gigabyte oc edition
Gigabyte 550w psu
Corsair 200R with 1x140mm 4x120mm

System is fully built and cable managed, has barely even played a game. What's a good price?

Well since new would cost around 675$-750$ I guess something from 450$-500$ should be reasonable.

Too good to be true. Beware of scammer. Take pics during packing and of all numbers on components. Take every precaution to protect yourself and your investment. Expect a claim of ' not as advertised'.

My scammy senses are tingling! Who would pay $900 for your system when one can walk down to Best Buy or FutureShop and buy an Asus gaming PC with windows 8 for less, with a warranty, and monitor, and current HW....

I guess you guys are not aware of the retardation that is on fleabay. People pay way too much for computer hardware on there all the time! Ive sold stuff with no scammer issues for about 4x more than I anticipated, and laughed all the way to the bank.

Same here. Some stuff goes for a crazy price and they pay and never complain. Its weird. Other stuff you think well this will do well. Never does. I got $157 for a 6870 I was going to let it go for $100

I buy and sell hardware every day. I'm fully aware. Even this isn't the norm though. Not saying he didn't find a sucker, just saying to be careful is all.

This is the e-mail I received. He is paying me via paypal and obviously not going to work out a pickup date and location until the money is received.
"
Thanks a lot.I have actually tried to get this kind of here earlier from here but most of the ones I got either have one huge fault or the other and some have even had accidents in the past while some are extremely exorbitant.As to the price, Price is Ok. So if you deem the offer good enough, I will be very glad to make the payment asap through my PayPal account or bank transfer i do have access to my bank account online as I am currently offshore and I won't definitely be able to make it to my bank to make bank wires across to you. As to shipping, I have a private shipping agent here in China that will come for the pick-up of the merchandise after the payment has been sent and you have received it in full. Do get back to me asap with your PayPal Email address and and Full name for PayPal and so that I can remit the payment asap if you want the payment to be made via bank transfer send me your bank name,Account name,bank account, bsb for the payment.

Kindly inform other buyers it as been sold."

I emailed him back with an invoice type thing and decided to throw in a graphics card that I have no use of for him
"
This is for the payment of $900 AUD for the following:
Desktop Computer
i3-3220
Asus P8H77-MLE Micro-ATX Motherboard
8GB Kingston DDR3 Memory
320GB Seagate Barracuda + 1TB Western Digital Caviar Green
Gigabyte GTX 660 2GB Windforce OC Version
Gigabyte 550W Powersupply
Corsair 200R Case with 4x120MM Fans and 1x140MM Fan
LG CD/DVD Drive
LG 18.5' Monitor 1366x768
+ Additional GTS 250 1GB DDR3 Graphics Card
I am assuming you would like the motherboard box and graphics card box along with driver disks.Once the payment has been sent through I will arrange a pickup location and date.

Typical scam reply. I'm telling you, don't send it. You'll never see it or your money again. You ship only to a Paypal verified address and get it signed for. No third party pickups.

I sold a video card on hard forums about 3 years ago to a guy that had an american address but says he was over seas for work and wanted the card there. He paid but when I shipped the card it showed delivered on the tracking and he claimed he never got it. He hounded me for two weeks saying he was going to have me banned and tell everyone I was a bad trader so I caved and gave him his money back. Come to find out I traced the card to the address he sent me and it was to a foreign shipping company in which I called and they said they forwarded the package to some Russian country... FML I tried a paypal dispute but since I had already refunded his money they would not listen to my story.
