recently had some big reality checks, such as the end of my 5 yr relationship among other things. So i've decided its time to change things.
Starting with selling this computer which I sink a huge part of my time into. Was just wanting to know a rough price i should put on it. Honestly I dont even care if it's not much, I just want it gone and although I could just throw it off a balcony or whatever, I'd rather give it to someone who wants it at a decent price. Everything is in working order and it will be freshly reformatted also.
Theres now 3 of those G skill sticks in there with an extra somewhere aswell.
Also theres a GIGABYTE Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 in there aswell now, but I still also have the other card in the box thats on the list.
21" samsung monitor
Steelseries Siberia headphones(white)
Logitec G110 keyboard
I'd like it to go all together, but if someone wanted a part, i'd consider it.
If anyone wants to make an offer then go ahead. Unfortunately it will be P/U in brisbane area only but am willing to travel within reason.
Otherwise I'm just going to throw it up on some shitty selling site and see how I go.
Yeah sell it as a "Gaming computer" on gumtree or one of those local facebook groups and you can probably charge a decent price for it.put it on gumtree altho here is ok i spose
so many brisfags were tribers
Some of the prices people are asking for "Gaming computers" on gumtree are fucking ridiciouls so if you price it reasonably you should be able to sell it. Add a couple of hundred bucks to your asking price to allow for haggling

use http://www.staticice.com.au/ to look up the average price of your parts brand new and then go from there.
Edit - brand new including only the stuff in the screenshot your looking at $1670 add the moniter, gpu and other stuff and you could probably ask for 2 grand+.
I think most of us around here would have had issues with relationships and games - they just dont go together, not unless you've married a gamer or something (which IMO isnt healthy as you're both then just sinking into your chosen addictions). For me it was Everquest 1 - it basically killed a former relationship of mine because I let it. I let it because i was unaware of it - i literally spent hours and hours and hours in that damned game, and totally ignored my gf's attempts to re-engage me. I spent time with her too of course, but she'd ask to go on a walk or what not and i wouldnt want to - then i'd feel resentful for going, then i'd come home and would be instantly back on the computer, a mindless zombie.
In hindsight, i cant believe i was so clueless.
These days, i'm completely mindful of the time spent gaming. I still game too much, but my wife comes first in everything. If she wants my time, she has it. If she wants to do something, i'll do it. I suggest things, we go out, we enjoy our time together. I still spend too much time on the computer but i am concious of it, and i make an active effort always to spend time with her and not ignore her. All the while i try and reduce my time playing. Games that require large time commitments, or anything that cant be played casually, they're the first things that have to go - and to be honest, i dont miss them.
So IMO rather than just outright dumping it, learn to moderate.
There's one huge thing i learned from quitting smoking (i smoked from mid-teens right the way through to around 30 or so, and havent had even a single puff in over 10 years now) - you HAVE to quit for the right reasons. If you quit for reasons that you dont really agree with - like to save money, like to please a partner who doesnt like the smell of it etc - you'll fail. But if you recognise that you really dont need them, you'll be able to follow-through. It's just the way it works. Same deal with you and your computer, you're likely sore from losing this most recent relationship, but a kneejerk reaction to dump the problem may not solve your problem, as it may not actually be the problem, only part of it.
Have a think about it before you do anything drastic. I think removing gaming or drastically removing it is a good thing, but empowering yourself to take control of the habit, that's the great thing.
*edit - we can all be pricks to each other around here from time to time, it's the nature of competetive gaming and the like - but i think on this particular issue we are all affected (or have been affected) and are somewhat unified.
I found moving to Cairns & living "light" without internet/PC did wonders for my soul. I started living life to the full.
If you are prepared to make a change and are dedicated - you can do it!
Maybe you store your PC @ your parents or something just in case
Anyways computers and gaming were/are part of me and selling my PC didn't help anything it made things worse as I lost 2 things I loved... I ended up buying a new PC 4 months later costing me money.
We are who we are, I don't think selling your PC will help in and of itself. You need to learn to limit your time on it and find other things to do that you enjoy that are more IRL social that you can do with future GF's etc like a sport or joint hobbies. IMo keep the PC but actively try to not spend as much time on it and take up mmore hobbies to balance it out and if friends are going out or have activities to do go with them etc etc.
Thanks pet etc for the tech advice, and the rest for some actually very thoughtful replies.
I guess I have some decisions to make.
I remember my first breakup(6 years), the gf was crying, saying how its the end etc etc. I grabbed my modem and smashed in on the ground in front of her to prove to her I wont play games. She gave me one more chance, so we went out for dinner, movies, day trips to the beach etc etc, 3 weeks after I got another modem and got back into games and shortly after that, of course, we broke up. The point is, if you truly love something you'll always come back to it no matter what. Yea I loved my gf but I loved computers and gaming more. It may be an addiction but once you learn to balance it out it's perfectly fine. My last gf(3 years) loved IT, she worked in IT so she didnt mind, she understood the IT need baha, anyways that relationship ended because she was muslim and you can imagine what happened there with the parents. My other point is, wait for the right chick that accepts it and allows you to do what you love to do. You can have both.
also, women are fucked i hate them
1. yes(and only about 80% of it is bad, poor lighting, camera, music, girls BMI)1. Porn
2. Mindless use of the internet
All bad imo
2. ive learned more shit online than any irl curriculum save for tafe
3. yup, but thats for nerds rite shakey
its a very simple situation, food water shelter and entertainment, women and children satisfy the last requirement 50% of the time and the other 50% is spent being miserable because of them. Zero sum game.
I spose theres an argument to be made for children as they're the ultimate legacy after you're dead but id also rather be both selfish and selfless in saving the planet from the massive carbon footprint known as reproduction and not having to deal with the responsibility of parenting.
choice is yours
No you're right im not qualified to talk about women, ive avoided them my whole life out of fear and i'll always be alone, im 100% biased loser and none of my commentary is valid.Have you ever had physical contact with a female phil, let alone emotional?
*edit and i dont mean rubbing your cock on the monitor
I still say its a zero sum game
^ when a girl finally decides to tell you what's wrong
Why'd you remove everyone from steam phil?No you're right im not qualified to talk about women, ive avoided them my whole life out of fear and i'll always be alone, im 100% biased loser and none of my commentary is valid.
