    Gumtree is where I sell all of my computers, no fees and assuming you set the price fairly it never fails to sell.

    In terms of working out price, I would go into eBay and search "i5 3570k GTX 670", refine the search to Sold listings, and see how much similar spec'd OCs have sold for in the last couple of months.

    CEX will most likely give awful prices, since they will be wanting to make a good chunk of profit off it themselves.

    Pawnbrokers being worse doesn't stop CEX being a bad option.

    Just look at how much the parts cost on pcparts picker, deduct some sort of value for it being second hand. Add some sort of value for it being premade.

    I would say you could do it for £2,000, give or take. The processor isn't that special now, but the GPU can still contend with modern games and the special cooling system is always a plus. People are generally going with 16GB RAM now, but there's no reason why 8GB wouldn't work for many systems.

    Anything else like solid state drives and such like? Special cooling compounds? What about connectivity?

    The best place is to look on ebay to see what the current price is.
    You should consider doing it for each component fot find its current value.

    CEX would be a poor place to sell it, you would get a rubbish price.

    GTx670 £60-80 depending on brand and extras plus luck.
    haf 912 £10-20
    *gb DDR3 £20 but depends on brand
    3570k £70-90


    Your other bits are your motherboard, cooler and hdd ssd.

    If you sell it as a job lot then you often get less, but less hassle.
    Dont forget ebay fees.

    CEX are going to give you a lot less because they have to make a profit.
