    Where to sell a PC apart from eBay?

    What's the best place to sell a PC where I can guarantee that someone will buy buy it? I need to sell my current PC but I've not had much luck. I also need to sell a motherboard but no-one will buy that either, any help?

    I know you don't want Ebay, but it's a really good choice, you can also try craigslist or selling it here :P

    I don't think anyone here would buy it, it's not exactly a top of the line PC...

    Just scrap it or give it away if it's too old, or if possible.
    You can use it as a server.

    But I need all the money I can get for this new PC, I bought my current one for around £450 and I'm looking to sell it for around £350 or £300 so I can get some new parts, the money I would get from it would really help.

    You bought it for that much when it was new? The price degrades fast in electronics.
    So usually after about half a year the value of it has dropped at least 50% - 80%.

    And usually when that has happened then there's new electronics out in the stores, that beat the ones you have in every single way, even if it was the newest when you got it.

    That being said, nobody will likely find it profitable to buy your after-market second-hand parts.
    Maybe if you're lucky someone will buy the entire thing complete with all HID devices. But the odds are slim to none.
    The best shot you have is to try and sell it to a friend that might need it or just to scrap it.

    Considering you bought it for 450 Euro & it's old/not too of the line - 350 is overkill.

    You can use 350 Euro (Almost 500 USD) to buy a decent , up to date computer. If you really want to sell it, you're going to have to lower the price a lot to at least 250.
    I see people selling decent used laptops & desktops for around $150 USD.


    Goodluck.
