How much is this PC worth?

Hello, decided to sell my computer. It is the following.

CPU / RAM / 3D Card have been professionally overclocked after nearly 2days trial & error. Now the system runs completely perfect 100%.

It wouldnt have to be overclocked once sold, but would be sold with paperwork showing which BIOS settings to change in order to achieve the full system overclock.

As a buyer doesn't get a manufacturers guarantee, secondhand pc's are only worth what someone is willing to pay, suggest you look on ebay or similar to see what sort of price you can hope for.

Most times you get more by selling the individual parts.

but you can't guarantee the PC"

Actually you will guarantee the PC. When someone buys a second-hand computer they are protected by consumer legislation, even if they buy it from a private seller.

Really? I thought, in this situation, it was 'let the buyer beware'?

I have to wonder why Xenzon is so keen to sell what seems to be only a 4 week old machine.

I'm afraid that you are going to be disappointed. Almost regardless of what you spent on the machine, finding a Buyer will be hard.

Finding a Buyer with money will be even harder. If you want a quick sale, then you may do better selling the parts on eBay. Even then, nothing like the amount that you have recently bought them for.

Think a few hundred, a little more if you are prepared to wait a while and market it hard.
