i7-8086K/Titan XP/32GB DDR4 CL16-3200MHZ - Sell/Part Out

This is the build in question:

https://pcpartpicker.com/b/D6WD4D

Although still quite powerful in terms of performance (Firestrike @ 25573) I am wondering if this is worth peanuts given that used hardware is not really worth much on the market. A friend of mine reckons this would only sell for $300 or $400 on eBay. He recently sold a 1080TI i7-7700K on eBay and it sold for $400. This PC is surplus to requirements in my house (I already have three builds not including my wife's PC), would $600 be a reasonable asking price? To be honest I am quite freaked out and thinking of not even selling it. I have no idea how a used Alienware computer could still flip for 70% retail but a state of the art build with twice the specs be worth less than a quarter the cost.

How would parting it out work out?

This is worth easily more than $1000. the water cooling parts alone constitute for $250-300 of value by themselves. the titan is worth about $600 used. 32GB of RAM is about $100-120 used. you get the idea. this is by no means worth so little. if you want to sell it for $400-500 though, trust me, I am a taker for the whole rig, but you should be able to get at LEAST a thousand. the 8086K is slightly better than an 8700K which still generally go for $250-300 or so used. the 8086K will still carry a slight premium, even on the used market. Good luck with your sale, I hope you get a fair amount for it!
I think your friend mis-estimated the value because he got an honestly low amount for a 7700K/1080 Ti combo. 1080 Ti's generally go for $500-550 for the record. also, I love the build... looks fantastic.

Thanks for your kind words. Yeah been kicking back and forth over this but I have realized another option that circumvents a PC overload - that is keep it and not complete a build that was a current project to be finished. It would mean having to sell a build I was so looking forward to, i.e. sell my MSI Godlike motherboard, 3900X and Titan RTX but I think being modern chips I will get at least 60-70% of my money back given they are still new unopened. Currently I am leaning this way since I would be rather loathe to wheel and deal too much trying to sell a full PC.

How much did it cost to make?

I reused parts from other builds but total cost was pretty close to MSRP of all components except for the the CPU and RAM which I got on a deal. I figure two grand invested.
