Question Considering selling my circa 2013 gaming PC, seeking advice


So as the title suggests, I am going to sell my gaming PC as I do not game anymore, and could use the extra money. I have one question though. Should I sell the parts individually, or just sell as a bundle. Here are the specs (that matter)
  • CPU: i5 3570k
  • GPU: Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB windforce
  • Motherboard: MSI GD65-Gaming Z77


Also, should I sell the motherboard and CPU as a bundle, or separate?

Thx

I would imagine how yuou'd prefer to sell it will depend on whether you want to maximize sale price or minimize sale time. Parts generally command higher prices when totaled when compared to a bundle. Those parts are still quite viable as a good PC, gaming or otherwise. Any machine good for gaming is also good for any manner of multimedia content. I notice you didn't mention a video card so does this mean you relied on the built-in Intel graphics within the i5? Someone could install a decent PCIe card and a decent amount of RAM and it would do well even today as a gaming device, let alone a SOHO Desktop box. I don't think you will have much trouble selling it and without all the heavier hardware shipping won't be a major issue.

Hey thanks for the reply. The video card is a GTX 770 2GB. I think at this point in time I would like to maximize the value of my assets. My goal is to sell the CPU and GPU and replace them with perhaps an i7 3770k and a GTX 1060.
