Default How much would I be able to get if i sold this custom built gaming computer?

I bought this gaming computer a year ago from Ibuypower, have a couple problems with it, a bad hard drive and now I just recently got the blue screen of death and it will not turn on, there is a 2 year warranty left on it and I am going to get it fixed and then sell it.
I am thinking about buying a gaming laptop instead and was just wondering how much I could get if I sold this custom build computer.

I bought for $1600 last june, and was wondering if I could sell for maybe 1100-1250? I am not entirely sure.

Any answer will be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance!

It's not worth that kind of money you're thinking about. Look at what you posted. Ibuypower for $1600.00 a year ago.
Bad hard drive.
BSOD-ing
Now won't turn on.
Even though you have the warranty, it's spoiled goods. For what you're thinking about asking for it most of the members in here can build a nice gaming hotrod from scratch.

You might have better luck trying to get a new (as oppposed to fixed) machine with the warranty you still have or just taking it apart and sell the parts.

I agree. You can get some good money for the parts alone and then build yourself a rig for around 600 or 700 bucks. The parts could get you up to maybe 900 or so

Or, if you want to save your computer, you could just buy a new hard drive and reinstall windows on it.

That's a pretty powerful gpu and cpu you have on there, so I don't think you would get a gaming laptop that is as good as that
