[Estimation]Systemparts
 
Hello,

I would like how much I would get by selling following items:

BFG 6800GT OC (life-time warranty and brand new from RMA)

Abit NF7-S rev. 2 motherboard with unused BIOS Savior and new BIOS chip

AMD Barton Mobile 2400+ (2GHz, 512Kb L2 cache, unknown stepping)

Cascade waterblock with transformed P4 retention system (modified to suit socket A motherboards without inhibiting it's use on P4 mobos)

I think that's all. :)

EDIT: I'd like to know the price I could ask for my Thermochill 120.3 radiator and 4 120mm Panaflo M fans

Added some stuff I wanted to pricecheck too.

[Bonbon] 19th April 2006 12:28

i'll bid 100 on the vga card

Xploited Titan 19th April 2006 12:40

OK, thx for the info.

Don't forget I'm just asking an estimation about the resale's prices.

New stuff being pretty expensive, I won't sell my current stuff before being sure I ofund what I'm looking for.

I would say that the 6800GT is still worth 150 for sure;
the 7600GT costs ~220 new and is slightly faster than the 6800GT.

sell the CPU on eBAY should be able to get 50 or more; the motherboard is in the 30-60 euro range


watercooling stuff is hard to sell of ebay, so best is to check forums, 75% of new price is always a good to aim for

Thank you, especially BFG's life-time warranty is nice. :) The card is completely new from RMA and has worked about one day (noticed my BH-5 memory is bugged for no apparent reason).

I quickly checked the forums and [M], but I can't see anything about suggested hardware for a good setup.

I was thinking about an Athlon64 X2 CPU, but when I saw the prices, I almost fainted. :( And I don't need SLI mobos, but still need PCI.

Any suggestions?


EDIT:
Is http://www.ldlc.be/fiche/PB00036449.html a good mobo you think?

life-time warranty... hmm.. you might want to read the small print, in Europe it doesn't apply I think, you get 1-2 years max.

for a setup, check our webnews section, search "guide*" should give you plenty of high/mid/low range systems.

if you really need to buy a system now;

S939 PCIe motherboard
1Gb PC3200 (1 stick)
Athlon X2 3800+
7600GT or 7900GT depending on budget

if you wait until October/November both Intel and AMD will have new products out which will cause older generation to cost less, and even the newest tech will not cost an arm and a leg (Conroe is slated to introduce lower clocked version at $200 price point)

no.

nVidia nForce4
or
ATI Xpress 3200

for chipset; which one will depend on your video card choice, of course:)

OK, I will wait then, dunno if the parents will have my patience though (I'm camping their computer :^D).

That was a clear message :D

Thank you for the reply. :super:

the fan on the video card is only good for 1 year of warranty

This warranty is valid if the product
afterwards it is no longer covered by the warranty, so if you fan fails after 2 years you will have to VOID your lifetime warranty to fix it....

Xploited Titan 19th April 2006 16:34
