Obsolete or unwanted technology or games

I was having a bit of a tidy up the other day and thought how much stuff I have but will probably never use again and it got me to thinking.

One man's trash is another man's treasure, so what about a thread where people can list their stuff they no longer need or use (RAM sticks, old graphics cards, cases, DVDs, games etc.) and if someone wants something, they cough up some postage and the buyer gets something useful and the seller gets a bit more space and a warm glow inside.

I'm still collecting stuff together and will post a list soon.

Anyone interested?

Decent idea.

I had a stash of tech that I was wanting to get rid of and decided to try Mazuma after seeing an advert. They send out a prepaid parcel label, you throw your stuff in and bang, payment... Or that's the theory. They contacted me the next day to say my stuff was damaged and they could only offer me £41 out of the £190 they said it was worth when I logged my stuff online.

I rejected it and sold it off piecemeal on eBay and made over £250. Job jobbed.

I have a complete DDR2 Quad Core and 8 gigs of Dominator RAM with a new' GFX card GTX1060 to offer. If I can fix a screen bleed issue an AOC 4K 26/27 inch monitor.
 
Similar "issue" to OP.
Loft clearance will have to include a complete PS1, PS2 & 3 ( and perhaps a PS4 not sure) together with around 80 odd mint and boxed games. All mint and boxed.
Apparently....they have some sort of value greater than UK in foreign climes but I'll need to look into it.
There's a toy & game specialist nearby..probably "Job Lot" it with her.
 
Always worth seeing if somewhere wishes to expand their stock.

For example, in South Wales there is this place offering retro gaming. Some may wish to acquire stuff for their own business?


If you want to feel old as shite, I downloaded this earlier for free from their site -


My children look up from whatever Overwatch session that they are on to gaze open-mouthed with horror when I show them what gaming meant to me.

Your post just reminded me I had a Dell Axem pocket PC, stuffed away in a drawer. ICBM was my go-to game.

Never go with Music Magpie either, they are a bunch of chislling twats, I had a load of DVDs to offload, around 300, some of which were collectors editions. They offered me £120 for the lot, took them to CEX, one box set alone got me £50, offloaded to lot to them for £450 in the end.

I might have mentioned this before, never trust a trader. I sold a load of Bob Marley, The Jam and other assorted vinyl at a boot sale for £20 or so. Only to find out that 'Setting Sons' could have earned £150 minimum, having replaced it with a CD I can understand why.
 
On helping a family friend clear out their Mum’s house after she died, we found a Betamax video recorder.
 
Music Magpie from the other end: I bought a load of "carefully inspected pre-owned" XBOX 360 games from them. 9 out of 20 wouldn't read at all, although I did get a refund and kept the games.

A mate used to own a video shop, and has a DVD resurfacing doohickey. Fixed 'em all for me.

I sincerely hope that you reimbursed those lovely Magpie folk?

The mushlings gaze open mouthed at me when they see I'm still playing....

If anyone finds a BBC Micro or better still a Master 128 they don't want then I'll make you an offer.

I've got some fairly decent games that I'd get pennies for so I'm in. I usually chuck them at charity shops but a lot of them are stowed out, as they say up here, and have no room.
