Does $600 sound reasonable?

Intel i5 2550K - $180
Asus P8H77-V LE - $60
MSI 1GB 6850 - $70
Corsair GS 650W -$60
Seagate 1TB HDD ST1000DM003 -$50
NZXT Phantom 410 Case -$60
8gb Crucial RAM (8-8-8-20) (2x4GB) -$30

So that puts its around $510 parted out. If you are buying I suggest offering $450 or so. If you are selling try $600 and see what happens.

Basically what I did to get those prices was to search shopbot.ca for the lowest price new and minus an additional 3rd for being used.

Also, keep in mind that the 2550k potential is completely lost on that board. You can overclock that cpu pretty damn high but not on a h77 board. Z68, Z77 or p67 boards would be best.

I was the Buyer :)

Case had a few scratches on the side panel which I will have to get I presume some automotive paint would be the best method of repair?

Other then that its in great shape all the parts are working well and no issues had some dust in it but I took care of that right away :)

Even had a nice DWA-522 wireless card which was a nice added bonus :)

Nice. That cpu overclocks well. A little better than the 2500k. Should be a fun chip to play with. I have no idea about paint though.

$450 is what I paid for $550 he would have included a 19" monitor keyboard, and some fancy mouse that is worth almost $100 itself. I just didn't think I needed another mouse or keyboard or monitor (inless it was a really high end 22" in or higher)
