    I have a 27" 2011 iMac i7 CPU, SSD and 1TB drive, also it has 16gb of ram and upgraded video card...

    i was the top of the line (everything maxed except the HD which i picked the SSD+1TB option instead of the 2TB) i think i play close to $4k

    How much could i get out of it if i try to sell it?? Still has 1 or 2 years left on its Apple care contract...

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.

    so mac2sell says $1.6k but it dint let me input like video card, or SSD drive,, So im guessing i can get a bit more

    What do you guys think would be a fair price?

    I would say.....

    $2000-2150 tops. Remaining AppleCare helps, but then, also helps good care of the machine and no functional/cosmetic issues.

    If selling through an online site factor in shipping costs/fees. And be aware that the second-hand market is mainly price-driven (the less $ figure).
