Looking to get a price on a custom built PC I bought about 12 months ago for about £1100. Was bought for some video editing and gaming. However, looking to downsize and I no longer need a tower of this power/size.

Anyone know of any companies that buy them? Dont want to go through ebay if it can be helped.

Its not about how hard you can hit, but how much you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take, and keep moving forward. Thats how winning is done.

Oof! Nice rig, if I could afford it I'd have it off you. :grin:

Besides Gumtree I'd say eBay is your best bet, despite wanting to avoid it. Maybe post an ad up at the Uni?

IT is a fab rig and I am just looking to see what I can get for it at the moment. Would only part if the price is right. Should have mentioned it also has another year parts and labour. But I havent really had my moneys worth out of it if truth be told and am looking for something a little smaller in size.

Cheers for the input lads

Just quoted a near identical spec PC from where i bought it from, seems like brand new it would be going for around the £1000. Tis looking like will hang onto it until the warranty runs out anyway unless I can recoup a good 2/3 of the cost. Really dont wanna go through fleabay
