    It isn't paranoia, it is basic science. But if you want top dollar for stuff, at least take pictures of the components on an anti-static mat, lol.

    Why do you have it for 9 days? you normally use the longer auctions for obscure items. common items will fetch the same price with 3 days vs the 7 days or longer.

    Okay. I hear you. I'll order an anti-static mat for next time heh. At the least it is bad optics I guess.
    I've always felt it lets you gain the biggest audience, and it's just the way I usually have done auctions (of mostly non-computer-related stuff). I don't know how many people look on eBay for used motherboards. You may be right though. Perhaps these items are lucrative enough that it wouldn't matter.

    Anti-static mat is unnecessary, just take the pictures on something that won't create static electricity... I usually do it on either glass or wood.

    Did you list them for sale here before posting to eBay? most people here use eBay as a last resort due to all the fees and scammers.

    Then I start to worry about stuff getting scratched/grinded up though. I think I'll just go with a mat. Just what I'd be more comfortable with. This Rosewill 23.6" x 23.6" mat looks good to me.

    I didn't. The eBay fees are pretty high, but I'm more comfortable doing transactions through eBay than working them out craigslist-style. I've had bad experiences both ways but more going the latter route.

    I've had good dealings with the members here over the 17 years I've been a member here, sold a motherboard to a member just the other day as a matter of fact.

    That's good to hear. I'll probably give it a shot next time.
