    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, trying to get this properly valued.

    I have built this up over the years and now I want to make the turn to a Macbook as it would be better for studying on.
    Everything has been put in with care, and everything on it is legal and nothing has been moded or overclocked by me. It plays all the newest game at tops Even minecraft :O

    Q6600 @ 2.4ghz
    680i Sli Mobo
    Gtx 460 1gb stock overclocked
    9800gt 1 gb dedicated physx
    3gb ddr2 ram
    750w psu
    500gb Hard drive (inc Win7 Uli 64bit, Office 2010 enterprise + selection of games)
    Blueray + Super dvd combo
    G110 logitech keyboard
    20” + 16” screen
    Speakers
    Saitek Cyborg mouse
    Antec 902 + Extra blue fan
    Blue Neons (For the hell of it)

    This might be a good start for someone to get there teeth into or something.

    If i dont sell it I am thinking of hackitoshing it and upgrading Ram

    Lemme know what you think it is worth?

    Yeah, but a copy of Windows 7 is only £50... If I were to buy it, that's all I'd want on there. What software are you including?

    Office Professional 2010 <-- Win7 Ultimate 64bit And around 5 games + steam account

    And other stuff, but I would wipe all the stupid free stuff :/

    Maybe £400? You'd get much more if you sold the components separately.

    CEX might be a half decent shout.

    Software doesn't add any value when buying second hand tbh.

    sell steam account seperately
    use steamcalculator to get you approx and goto cadred.org or something
    as for your rig, sell the components but also the macbook pro isnt going to do much good when you get back and want to game again

    I've always found that the techpowerup forums were a good place to sell stuff.
    If you've got a brand new account on there people might be a touch suspicious of you though, so be prepared to give some significant proof that you have what you're selling.
    Failing that, AVforums, although there are scammers occasionally on there...

    Well, thats pretty outdated, in terms of todays tech. I'd say no more than £500, though u might be able to fetch 600-700 from some ignorant punter.

    I wouldn't go higher than £500 [EDIT: That's assuming that's a G0 stepping Q6600, else it's def. not worth more than £450]. What are the model numbers of the mobo, psu, monitors and speakers? Also stock heatsink or an aftermarket one?

    FWIW I've lately thought about selling my Macbook. It's a 13" Pro. It's 16 months old (Can't remember if I bought it in Sept or Aug 09)

    It's the 2.53Ghz, 4GB RAM, 250GB HDD, 9400M GPU system.
    CoconutBattery tells me it's got 79% capacity (hasn't been recalibrated mind) and it's had 265 load cycles.

    Best thing is I got 3 years of AppleCare with it, so it's got another 20 months full warranty.

    Bad point is I've stupidly managed to dent it. It's a little dimple on the right hand palm rest. There are also a few scratches on the underside. I'll take pictures if you are interested.

    I've got all the packaging so no problem there.

    I'd consider a swap with a bit of cash my way or you're welcome to bid for it.

    I'm not interested in the speakers so you can keep them.
