Default How much is my computer worth?

How much could I get for my computer in my signature, but with a 160gig and 80 gig Hard drive? (im trying to sell it to my parents)

I'm not sure what kind of PSU I have, or what kind of CPU cooler, so...yeah

Thanks!

Not much, id say around $200 max for the tower alone.

If parted out, you could get more on ebay.

yeah $200 is about right. I don't know, even parting it out probably wont get him much more at all.

$200 max... that was Intel's 2nd worst processor time (well I'd say worst was actually Pentium D days, Intel couldn't make a chip them if their life depended on it, so they had to use high clock speeds to fool people)

We sold an old dell with a 2.4ghz celeron, 512 ram, and a 120gb hdd for 250 on ebay profit towards my friends build.

Ending bid was $230 i think with $50 shipping costs listed but it actually only cost $22 or so to ship out.

This was about 6 or 7 months ago but i imagine that you could get at least $250 on ebay probably more along the lines of $300..especially as sad as it is to say if it is a pre-built that is known to people such as a dell dimension etc....

You are better off selling the whole thing on e-bay with no buy it now price. You might make more money with bidding. I had an old laptop I sold on e-bay I wanted $100 sold on e-bay for $250. Then I had old 32mb video card I was hoping for $25 I got almost $60 for the card.
