Hey cobbers, Looking to sell my motherboard and CPU on Gumtree. Any idea what I price I should ask? Motherboard is a Z170M Mortar and CPU Processor i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz

Selling them together?


I usually see what they're going for on ebay and price around that. And I might also look at what I paid new and what current parts are worth new with similar performance.


If you're not in a rush, aim high and see if you get any nibbles.

In the middle of 2017 I bought my Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti Aorus 11GB for $1,196.


Last week during the Black Friday sales I bought a Gigabyte RTX 3060 Ti Elite for $1,289.


Today on Ebay I sold the 1080 Ti for $1000.


That's just nuts.


The 3060 Ti only gains about 10% in terms of performance. The new card scored 22,009 on Fire Strike in 3D Mark. The 1080 Ti scored 20,376. So for approximately 10% more I've picked up 10% extra frames. But the old graphics card was interfering with the sound card; an issue that is now fixed. And I've gained ray tracing if I want to try it, as well as access to Nvidia's broadcast software which can do mic and webcam filtering. So overall I am very happy with this exchange.
