    I am thinking of selling my Alienware 18 (Viking). Specs:

    CPU: 4940MX
    Video: 2 x Nvidia 980mGTX (SLI)
    RAM: 32GB 1866 CL 10
    Storage: Intel 730 x 2 SSDs in RAID0
    New Battery
    2 x 330Watt Power Supplies
    Warranty till October 2019

    What should I be asking for it? I am looking only for opinions.

    Thank you,

    Maybe $1600? That seems to be top of the line tbh, although i don't know why you have 2 chargers

    Clearly you don't drag an AW18 to work and home again in a backpack everyday. that power supply is quite heavy. I've been seriously considering buying a second one for this reason.

    I travel for work and gaming is my life (almost). One stays at home, I don't like having to reroute the A/C through my desk every time. So one for travel. Thank you for the reply's everyone.

    get rid of the A18 asap, they have a tendency to blow up for no given reason. Another forum member lost theirs to MOSFET failure very recently.
