Default How much is this worth?

I'm thinking about upgrading..or rebuilding...or something! IDK yet, so just for kicks, I put my pc up on the campus for sale forum. What do you think I'll get offered?

Graphics
eVGA Geforce 7900GT KO 256MB
Monitor
Rosewill Black 19" 8ms LCD
Processor
AMD 64 X2 3800 2.0GHz 1GHz FSB AM2 (w/Arctic Silver 5 and Thermaltake Copper Heatsinkfan)
Motherboard
ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI
Memory
PQI 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 800 SDRAM
Power Supply
Antec TRUEPOWER 2.0 550W SLI Ready
Hard Drive
Western Digital Caviar SE16 250GB 7200RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
Case
Apevia x-Cruiser Black Steel (w/Side Window & Blue & Red Fans w/Speed Control)
DVD
SAMSUNG Black DVD Burner w/LightScribe

I'm currently broke..and wouldnt sell until I had a new pc in hand, but I will have a job very soon for vacation. I really want conroe, GTS, 680i, etc, but IDK if I should just buy another GT and wait until august or something.

I dont know how old it is but i'm assuming not too bad so i'll go with 1450CAD. People buying second hand computers are unbelievably stingy though as I have experienced.

$600 at most. I could not see anyone paying any more than that for it. Sure, to buy the parts new it would cost a lot more, but being that it is used, it is worth half of what it would cost new.

I have a similar computer I am looking at selling. X2 3800+ 939, 2gb OCZ Platinum DDR-400, 7900GT KO Superclocked+VF900, DFI Lanparty SLI-DR, 500w Antec PSU, Samsung 18x DVD writer, 320GB IDE, 40GB IDE. A guy is going to buy it from me for $600.

It wouldn't. In fact, I'll slap my 8800GTS in my X2 3800+ system (2.0ghz) and prove that there is no bottleneck. I will compare it to my E6600 @ 3.2Ghz
