christ mac, no ones going to pay more the $1800 for that computer, its been used, it doesnt matter if set parts cost over $400, right now u can build a pc that would just destroy that pc for less money.

I say $1000-$1300.

If I were you, I'd pretty much take everything you bought and divide it in half. Even then you will still be off the price for it, but it will surely help you get closer.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121120 cost for brand new Z-5500 speakers $213 after $50 bucks instant savings.

Nice speakers but, onboard sound?....

I say the most valuable thing you have is the monitor.

If you want to sell it I would put everything on ebay at a start of $800, it should get higher as more people bid on it.

You could sell the monitor seperate and drop the computer to $700 starting bid.

or would it be better to split everything up?...and sell it as parts
like sell my case separate........cell my cpu/mobo together/ cell ram together, sell video and capture card...everything separate???

thanks for the help I just wish I could get like almost as much as I paid for everything I built it myself and its about 2months old... 1gb of RAM is about 2weeks old haha.

Why are you selling it then if you just built it, I'd say just keep it. Used computers go for way less then new ones, and theres tons of ebay competition so you'll have to keep that in mind.
