i would never buy a dell again since my dimension 8200
it sucks a lot of $ to upgrade its parts. cuz wont match like a normal pc ones
plus the mobo is different from the other pc's so u'll have to throw your whole pc to garbage
again do not buy a dell make your own pc (save money)

Only Dell PC worth buying are laptops and for people who just want a budget PC or who don't want to build a system. They still have a strong market though.

But as for that PC rating, I would say $300, but if you hussle right, you can probably squeeze $400 out of it if you get lucky.

Don't bother buying Dell Demensions. Building your own computer can give you a better variety in parts.

i probably would pay 370 at the most... because its got a xtremegamer card in there, but its a dell so most ppl wouldn't consider looking at it.. but when u get a new system, reuse that xtremegamer card...

$1600 for that thing? How long ago was this? Man you got ripped, and I'm doubting you even got that 6800 or the sound card in there from Dell, you upgraded from onboard video and sound, eh? What a rip.
