I dont want to sell, but since my car was written off, and I will never get a good car with what they are offering, I kind of need to do it.
Sad but true, takes a minimum of $5K just for the car alone to get a decent piece of junk. I have a $4K car (04 Mazda 6) sitting in my driveway waiting for parts.......

$2000 is the most it can be appraised for. These components are from 2014 and while they are still current-gen won't be for long until Broadwell-E comes out. Besides computer hardware operates on a refresh cycle and unless someone wants to be an early-adopter $2000 is the upper-end of the appraisal. $1500 is a better appraisal and even then it is still high ($1250 is more reasonable). The CPU would be about $800-900 dollars and the motherboard $300-400 and even then it still doesn't add up to $1500. $2000 would only work if using USD-CAD exchange to factor into Canadian hardware prices.

This is my opinion but I don't see $2000 as being a proper appraisal or reasonable figure. I understand it's Haswell-E and 8-cores but it's early-adopter and 1st generation LGA2011-3 technology.

I think the biggest problem is finding a buyer with that much disposable income at this particular time.

Dark night there has been at least 2-3 5960x sold for 1k recently. $1200 is the honestly the opinion of someone who has no idea what they are talking about.

It all depends on how fast you want to sell the components. Asking $2000 for hardware from 2014 for a niche segment is not reasonable unless you have no timeline or expectation for selling it. If you read my post I mentioned that $1250-1500 is an acceptable price range and I gave a break-down whereby the CPU was off by $100-200 maximum even in my lowest-appraisal. So I would say that I know what I am talking about (and honestly I don't appreciate someone saying that I do not know what I am talking about).

By the way I have been around computer components and hardware a long-time so I have a fairly reasonable understanding

You could sell anything quick if you sell it way below realistic pricing.

1k for the cpu is realistic +- $50 and probably shipped.
I know $500 is the sweet spot for a used rve. Mine missed the store return date by 6 days.
The memory is a tough item to price as there are much cheaper options but none as premium. And it was purchaed only at the end of dec.


And saying the stuff is from 2014 is misleading. Oct 2014 which is a tad over a year old. The mobo is the usb 3.1 refresh which is 2015. The memory is timeless and current really.

Considering this is niche hardware and also enthusiast components selling it below the highest appraisal value is realistic. Asking $2000 as a way to re-coup this like an investment is not taking into account how hardware depreciates quickly especially high-end hardware with industry cycles of refresh and planned/perceived obsolescence.

1K maximum at the most for the 5960X. It also depends on how much voltage it had, how abused it was, what temperatures it was kept under, etc... all of which factor in the pricing. Someone buying a 5960X will likely overclock it and increase the voltage so that decreases the lifespan of the component especially if the temperatures were not kept under control. A stock non-overclocked 5960X should get the $1000 but not for an overclocked and volted 5960X even if the temperatures were kept under control.

Right I forgot about the memory in the appraisal so that could be adjusted upwards. However the motherboard can be between 300-400. USB 3.1 doesn't add $100 automatically to the value of it especially considering how little devices there are out there that even uses it and it's a refresh board of the same design. So if we add in the memory at between 200-300 that still puts it about 1500-1600 and nowhere near $2000.

Right I already acknowledged about the memory which I forgot to include the appraisal. So that puts it at about 1500-1600.

That's the biggest issue. If you part it out you will have more interest but there is no guarantee that the other components will sell but if you bundle it you will sell it but not necessarily as fast as you would if parting it out. I can see the issue here and unfortunately with high-end hardware it's hard to recoup costs.

If possible, I would suggest you do whatever possible NOT to sell the high end gear. I fully understand your situation, but you will never replace the hardware for what you sell it for, and you will regret selling it cheap for a short term need.
