View Full Version : For how much should I ask selling a used power supply?

I got a new one for my nephew for his birthday... Actually it was a new graphics card (EVGA 9600 GSO) that required a better power supply. His WoW is brilliant looking now.

Perhaps on Craigslist.

300W? Oh, 50 to 100 bucks, I'd say.

Trust me, I know it is not worth much at all. But I figure I was planning on spending about $100 but I am now down $260! So I would not mind $50 - $100

Umm, just so you know I paid ~$120USD about a year ago for this 700-watt:

I doubt you'd sell it to someone who knows what their doing for more that $30-40.

I'd personally go around USD $20 or $25.

I personally got my 300W for $50, after my stock PSU blew.

See this, http://www.affordablesurplus.com/bestec-atx-300-12e-power-supply.asp

Based on this and the discription which shows a 20 pin power supply conncetion and no sata conncetions, etc. I would say you would be lucky to get $15 to $20 if someone had to also pay shipping. Bestbuy and office depot sell a better version for about $40. I just bought a 450 watt modular Power Supply at Bestbuy for $50.

Power supplies lose value faster than cars. I wouldn't pay more than $5 per 100 watts for a used power supply.

I'm wondering if you would like to rephrase that.
