How much is my main rig worth?

Recommended Posts

I am curious to see what you guys think I could fetch for my main rig. With C2D OCing so good and AMD quad's just around the corner, I just want wanna know what my options are. I am gonna keep the other stuff, since it's running dr_bowtie's rig with watercooling just fine.

 

Motherboard: DFI LanParty nF4 SLI-DR VC-RE.<------DEAD

 

CPU: AMD Opteron 170 CCB1E 0609 FPAW (2.75GHz @ 1.475v naked)

Probably good for 2.85GHz, but I gotta see about that still.

 

RAM: 2x 1GB OCZ EL DDR PC4000 Gold GX XTC (250MHz @ 2.6v)

These are so easy to get stable no clue how much they'll OC though. I just use the 275x10 with 180 divider for simplicity.

 

System HD: 1x WD 200Gb Caviar SE SATA3.0

Storage HD: 1x WD 320Gb Caviar SE16 SATA3.0

Storage HD: 2x WD 250Gb Caviar SE16 SATA3.0

Don't know what to do with these yet, thinking I might want a small Raptor, or two, then buy 2x500Gb. But I'd probably need to buy the other drives first. I don't wanna lose the data I got on them. Might even end up keeping them, really don't know.

 

Thanks in advance

Here's my best guess:

 

DFI board $50-$60

AMD Opteron 170 $90-$100

2 gig OCZ $90-100

200 gig $30-$40 320 gig $40-$50 250 $35-$45

 

Think you're about $10 low on the board and HDDs.

Well you'd know about the drives, those 250's are the ones I got from you, work flawless btw.

 

Ouch on the DDR, you can't find good stuff like that anymore. Anyone else?

DFI board $90

AMD Opteron 170 $90

2 gig OCZ $145

For the HDDs check newegg prices and subtract $10-$15

 

This is all based on what I would pay for those items....

That sounds a bit more like what I would like for those items, maybe an even $150 for the RAM, but then again a lot people want bargains. I could get a low end C2D rig going with that though.

$100 cpu

$135 ram

$45 200gig

$45 200gig

Add little extra for the HDD's you want and thats a little 3Ghz+ flying machine right there.

Motherboard: DFI LanParty nF4 SLI-DR (Tmod's 704-2BTA)

the link's to an expert with two days left on fleabay... close as I could come to a used SLI-DR There are some listed as high as $185+ shipping, but you'd have to be braindead to pay that for a 939 board, lol I'd average it to $90 for a used board... sound reasonable?

 

CPU: AMD Opteron 170 CCB1E 0609 FPAW (2.75GHz @ 1.475v naked)

Used opty, with IHS intact :P <$100 so far... 2 hours left

 

RAM: 2x 1GB OCZ EL DDR PC4000 Gold GX XTC (250MHz @ 2.6v)

$150 easy sell! list them here for that, I bet someone buys them quick!

 

System HD: 1x WD 200Gb Caviar SE 16 SATA3.0

couldn't find the 200Gb version with 16MB cache... knock 20% off the 250Gb version price I guess... $56 new adjust for used price

 

Storage HD: 1x WD 320Gb Caviar SE16 SATA3.0

price for new... adjust accordingly :P$80+ shipped new retail price

Storage HD: 2x WD 250Gb Caviar SE16 SATA3.0

again, new drive price... adjust based on how much the drives have been used? $70 new shipped retail price...

 

That tallys to ~$550 but your drives are used and your CPU is naked and OC'd...

 

I know, I'm pretty harsh... and I haven't even started my job as a Purchasing agent for the Air Force yet (Contracting)... :tooth:

 

now you just gotta adjust for all those people that barter with you.. lol

 

and Branjo... I think you just convinced me to sell my rig when I get outta basic and go with an intel/ATI build, lol and I have an extra pair of DDR like Reel's to sell to make up the extra... lol
