Default Is it worth it?

I have an old MSI MS 7061 Motherboard with 712MB of DDR RAM, AMD Semperon 1600.

I have no use for it nor any of its parts. If I sell it, upgrading it will not be worth it. Would selling it be worth any money? Or should I just donate it to our local Computer Organization?

Since it's an older socket you may well get a bit of money for it.

Sorry, I meant 768MB RAM. 256 + 512 I need to learn how to add.

But yeah, I'll get a little money for it, but how much would that be? I would just be selling the motherboard, CPU/HS, and RAM. Everything else, I stripped.

We will have a rummage sale next week, to sell all our crap we don't need, raise some money. I don't want to rip anybody off.

Well that's just it some people would pay a decent amount of money for it because they can't get it anywhere else. I wouldn't be in a position to say how much because that all depends on where you sell it (remember I don't live in America) but if I had a machine that fully worked but for a busted board like yours, I might be tempted if you were selling for maybe $30 or so. If you're doing OK for money though, you might want to either give it to them or sell it for something small like $5 since you don't need it any more.

Technically this thread is against the rules isn't it? The "no asking how much i can sell it for? aka price check" thread

However, ebay says your boards worth about 24 bucks, but thats ebay so its inflated.

Really, I was origionally asking if it worth keeping/selling/donating, but as Kmote brought up the suggestion, I had to ask.

Those are the BST rules, we aren't in the BST area. I think the difference is that the OP isn't trying to sell his stuff to us without knowing his price.
