    Price check on semi-high end X58 system... What is it worth?!

    So the time has come to say farewell to my X58 build. Here's the goods:

    1 x EVGA (141-BL-E760-A1) X58 motherboard
    1 x Intel Core i7-950 (BX80601950) processor
    1 x EVGA (015-P3-1480-AR) GTX 480 videocard
    1 x Corsair (CMPSU-1000HX) power supply
    1 x 6GB Corsair Dominator GT (CMT6GX3M3A1866C9) memory kit
    1 x 500GB Western Digital Caviar Black 32MB cache hard drive

    What is this system likely worth if I were to:

    a) Part it out
    b) Sell it as a bundle

    Also, is this system worth trading straight across for a brand new in the box, sealed, never used Intel Core i7-3930K processor?

    Thanks!

    I've seen similar systems as a whole go for 5-600 dollars.

    as far as parting it out...I'd go 50% or so of "new" pricing

    So it looks like parting it out would be better than trading for the processor then?

    If you could trade "straight up" it would be worth the swap...

    Personally, I'd part it out accepting "Best Offers"

    Depends on how much work you want to do, straight up trade is probably fair deal and less work.
    On the other hand you might get a little more parting but it could also be a more drawn out process
