Budget Build - going to sell. Eh?

Description

I watched for crazy deals and pieced this together over a month or two. I am planning to sell it and will try to make $75-100 bucks. Many of the parts had mail in rebates which I follow through on.

Obviously this is geared towards a basic user. I think the benefit is the fact that's its a lower end computer that also has an SSD.

What do you guys think., could I sell this for around $400?

The SSD wont be that fast the mobo only has sata II

System fully boots up in 15 seconds - I think the SSD will still be very fast for daily use even though not to its fullest potential

Tell a easily convincible basic PC user that the SSD is this fast, and they'll be convinced that they have the fastest PC ever. Heck most people think that your graphics depend on your hard drive lmao. Id even go for 450-500$ and you could easily get it sold just because of dat SSD.

Yeah, the system if really quick, boots in 15 seconds so I hope to sell it for $500!

Like I said the sata II is really slowing that SSD down my 4 year old WD caviar blue loads windows 8 in 24 seconds flat.. with sata III you could technically launch windows 8 under 10 secs

How often does a basic user need to transfer information at speeds above 3GB/s? http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-upgrade-sata-3gbps,3469-16.html

Tom's Hardware seems to think there is no noticable real world differences for basic desktop use

The point is not the performance use or not the point is the buyer would think he's getting some super deal when he's really now getting something that great.. llano APU's suck and they are almost 2 years old. they are on a dead socket as well.

If you set it up to use the SSD as a cache drive for the main HDD, you could sell this for $500 just by showing it side-by-side with retail PCs.

You don't need to go with really cheap stuff to sell a computer, in fact it's better to go with the high-end stuff you get at great deals. People who want a $400-$500 PC can get a simple one at Best Buy that will be pretty similar to this one. But the retail selection in most physical stores usually tops out at $900 and a Geforce GT 630 or so. People that want a decent gaming desktop but lack the confidence to build one will often be the people who turn to craigslist or ebay. I built a liquid cooled 8-core with a 7870 GHz edition, SSD, 1.5TB HDD, and 8GB DDR3-1866 for about $750 (once the damn rebates come in.) and I'm positive I could get someone on craigslist to spend $1000-$1300 on it.

This is a great perspective and very true I think. My idea is that you can't get a low end computer from best buy with an SSD so that is my angle.

no offence but there are laptops out there under 500 that are better :/ you can get a i5 or a10 these days with the prices they are today.. and plus even the mobile chips are better then the that a6- 3670k most cell phones now have better dual cores :/ but good attempt on trying to resell and i wish you luck.

But they have an HDD

you could easily sell it for over 400. good luck!

Just say that this computer boots up faster than 90% of all computers out there LOL. Try selling it for like 500+ on craiglist... Or kijiji

Problems 1.) This will DIE in next gen! 2.) No wireless. ('Nuff Said) 3.) The SSD defeats the budget purpose, should have taken that out and gotten an A10 instead, because with dumbasses higher numbers the better.
