Best Buy has officially launched a couple new services, one of which is a new online trade-in center for your old PCs, Game Consoles, and more. When I first read about the service, I thought to myself “This is a great idea, maybe I won’t have to worry about reselling my old hardware on Ebay anymore!”. Boy, was I ever wrong.
Here’s what my setup includes:
- EVGA 680i Chipset motherboard
- Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.6ghz
- XFX GeForce 8800GT
- 500GG+ of Hard Drive Space
- A Very Freaking Expensive Watercooling Setup
- 2GB of OCZ DDR2 800
That’s just a quick run-down of what I have in my PC, here’s what the configuration on the Best Buy Trade-In center website looked like (click for full size):
Yeah, for all that hardware, they wanted to give me $400.96. Not even enough to cover the resale value of my video card, motherboard, and memory; much less the entire PC. . . .
