Hmm... $500, and $150 for the monitor. Might be a bit higher, because of the case and good PSU.

And yeah I would upgrade that GPU fast :P (and CPU/mobo/RAM)

Some interesting stuff there, the case has already been noted but a 300GB HDD is intriguing as well.

It's probably worth £450 but I'm going to guess you got this as a steal, £300.

EDIT: I'm from the UK as well BTW

EDIT EDIT: that's excluding the monitor (probably about £150 second hand, dells aren't cheap)

Yeah, that's pretty good actually. Especially for a W-Cing setup.

What monitor is it?

These photos are on your computer. You'll need to use a (free) image hosting hosting site such as Imageshack or Photobucket to allow us to see them.

The monitor will likely have the make and model on the back of it somewhere.
