Well, my comment is purely based on "non vintage" specific things.
I've a fetish ( ok ok, I know ) for xeons. On current hw there are various things with actually balanced / good prices to be found. But xeons tend to be valued more than they should

Again, personal opinion ( and these things are OT since too new )

I often hear comments like this, but I don't really understand them.

People pay what they are willing to pay. It is not like Amazon where
bots watch other bots and raise the prices of rare books in a spiral

Sure, they are places where, as a buyer, you may find bargains -- but
as a seller, what is the appeal of selling somewhere that will make
you less money?

eBay is easy, it works worldwide (or as nearly as anyone does), the
seller fees are low, and it has a large catchment audience. I have
sold a lot of stuff there, and bought some too. It does the job.

I often see people on here saying go to some obscure website or other
instead, but most of those are US-based. I am not in the USA and don't
want to be.
