Hey guys I was just wondering how much my used pc will be worth once i upgrade it with a new gpu (Asus R9 270x 4GB) and a new ssd (Crucial mx1000 256gb) here's the link of the pc: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/strfRB
anywhere from 60-75% of current market value.
This is just something I've noticed personally, and it might just be because my area of the country isn't necessarily very wealthy, but it seems to me that it's the high-end PCs that really lose value fast. I think it could also be because there's an inherent base value to a pre-assembled computer for non-savvy folks that just want a daily driver, whereas the big high-end machines are bought almost exclusively by people who know enough to build one on their own and are looking for a deal, not a preassembled kit.
Unfortunately this excellent and modern PC falls on the losing side of this equation. I'd sell it for between 750-800 pounds OBO.
Thats exactly what i was hoping for, just wanted a second opinion, thanks
