COMMENTS


This computer offer does NOT include the following: A monitor, a keyboard, a mouse, and speakers.

The computer is 2 weeks old.

There ARE 2 stickers on the computer, a Razer Sticker (From the Lachesis) and the Intel Core2Quad Sticker (From the Q9450). I can remove these if need be.

The HDT-1283's Pushpins are a bit flimsy. I'm a little afraid that it might come off if shipped (Easily fixable though). If you are interested and you are near the Princeton area, you CAN pick this computer up.

Currently one of the fans are in transit from an RMA (Didn't work).

The Tri-Cools that came with the Antec 900 were removed and replaced with the 3 120mm case fans.

NO OPERATING SYSTEM.

Questions about the PC? Have an offer? Place it in this thread!

NOTE: If pictures are wanted just ask.

Outside with side panel open.

Damn. Nice build. May I just ask a question, I'm not interested, just wondering, how much did you knock off in the price for being 2 weeks old? Or in another words, how much did you pay for it?

I payed about 2100 for the entire thing (This is just counting me buying parts over about a 4 month period of time). Plus it included the mouse and keyboard, and a monitor.

I didn't knock off any money for it being 2 weeks old, but offers should reflect the 2 weeks old usage.

NOTE: Pics coming in a second, I'm uploading to imageshack now.

Oh ok, I was just wondering. That's a very nice build though. I'm just curious as to why you didn't take the HD4870 over the GTX 280. The 4870 is not too far behind in bench marks, and it's almost half the price.

Again, I didn't buy this all at once. I put this together 2 weeks ago. I did buy the GTX 280 as soon as it came out, which is why I didn't pick up the HD 4870.

you may have a tough time selling this here dude, once you open it, it becomes used, whether for 1 day, 2 weeks, or 2 months, it's still used, kinda like once you drive a car off a sales lot, it has already has depreciated about 20% in blue book value, what about the original boxes...? are the UPCs removed (MIR)...?

people usually come here expecting to find deals, and hoping to find good deals, this is a computer forum, most of the people here can easily build their own system, I took your list and made a few changes to make a build that I would prefer (4870 instead of the GTX280, two 500GB HDDs instead of the single 150GB high speed drive) and it came out to $1850 shipped, your list is a very good template, and great choice going with the Xigmatek cooler, great bang for the buck, your video card...? not so much...

good luck selling it though, looks like a nice system...

I'm not looking for a full 2000 dollars on the computer, I was hoping for people to offer a price for the computer.

i think it will still be hard to sell it, seeing how not much people have that much cash upfront, they usually have to take out a loan, and if they get ripped off or something broke along the shipping, then the buyer usually are the one that suffers.
maybe sell the parts individually, you will have a higher chance in selling, and whats left over, either use as backup in case something in your original computer broke, OC it till it dies (for fun) or sell it on ebay.
I had a hard time selling an computer back then for $200 when it was worth around $300 used, i never got the chance to sell it, i just gave it away.
