    Goal: To sell as much of my computer as possible.
    Problem: I don't know half of the things I'm looking at.
    Solution: Stare at them until they're too outdated or ask you guys for help.

    Take a peek:

    I know the thing on the left is the graphics card, I think. If I were to sell the graphics card, does the fan go with it? Where does the graphics card "end". Is that the processor on the right? (Turn your head 90 degrees clockwise)

    I've figured out the RAM and the hard drive so far, simply because they were labeled...

    Any help is appreciated!

    you could just sell the entire mobo.. because only the cpu and the ram and the HDD is detachable. the GPU is generally soldered onto the mobo.

    Shoot! I'll see if I can get someone interested on Craigslist. I was hoping to be able to detach everything and cleanly sell the parts.

    Looks like a gpu, cpu, motherboard, wifi card, heatsink + fan and some casing.

    The thing that says WLAN is the wifi card I guess. Would you be able to point out the other things?

    i guess that the CPU and the gpu would be sitting around where the copper thing( heatpipe?) is. the fan should have the cpu underneath if laptop cpu's are mounted the same way as desktop ones with the heatsink fan going on top. we would be able to better identify things if you took slice pics of the mobo. like focus on a part of the mobo and snap. so we can more clearly read things.
