Wink How much is it worth?

I have an old computer that i am going to be selling and was wondering what yous thought it was worth. Below is the description of it.

AMD Athlon 1700+ 1.47GHz (overclocked to 1.49GHz)
Soyo AK35GTR Mobo (i think)
60GB Seagate HD
G-Force 2 MX440 32MB
Creative Labs Sound Card
V.92 56K Dialup card
10/100 Ethernet card
Avus Mid-tower case
Optical Mouse
Standard Keyboard
Standard Speakers
How much for all that?
What about if I add a 15in LCD moniter
Thanks for the info

If I were buying it this is the most I'd pay for it.

Without LCD - $175

With LCD 250-$275

Post Basic System

It looks like a pretty good and basic system. I think somone would pay anywhere from $300-$450 for it. Complete with the monitor $500 would be a good price, since you include basic inputs (keyboard, mouse) and speakers, which is a good addition.

Overall great computer for college students, if you know some ask them, you'll probably get more offers.

The LCD is a great addition, just because LCDs are so expensive.

$300 ?? for an AMD 1 Ghz machine? Doesn't that seem a little steep to anyone???

I'd spend the extra $100/150 bucks and buy a brand new system with all of the bells and whistles! (dell, hp its all good)


AMD Athlon 1700+ 1.47GHz
Soyo AK35GTR Mobo (i think) -------------------$68
60 GB HDD-------------------------------------------$50
G-Force 2 MX440 32MB -------------------------- $22
Creative Labs Sound Card-----------------------$15
V.92 56K Dialup card------------------------------$6
10/100 Ethernet card-----------------------------$2
Avus Mid-tower case------------------------------$25
Optical Mouse--------------------------------------$4
Standard Keyboard-------------------------------$4
Standard Speakers-------------------------------$6
===================================
How much for all that?---------------------------$202 - NEW

The most valuable thing you have is that 15" LCD monitor (Which you can get brand new for $260, used, maybe.. MAYBE $200)


And by the way, I didn't make these prices up... www.pricewatch.com

Check it out!

Red face You missed something...

Memory... Doesn't seem to be in your list.

Rule, no one will most likely buy a computer without any memory in it. I didn't realize that it didn't have any in it, especially a newbie.

My new quote: $225 and $300 with the LCD.

+$25 anyways because its built...

I usually don't miss things like that...
