Default Need Help Priceing A Computer for Local Selling









Just Finished This Build And Comp Runs Great!

I need a little extra cash, so the new build has to go.
I need help trying to set a good price.

SPECS:
Abit NF7-S revision 2 Motherboard
AMD Athlon 2400+ XP-M (OC and stable @ 2Ghz)
Corsair XMS 512MB PC3200 (DDR 400)
Swiftech Socket A Heatsink (With AeroCool Fan On Top)
ePOWER Puma II 450W Power Supply
100GB Maxtor SATA Harddrive
COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 Case (w/ Window)
Nvidia FX5600 256MB Video Card
Various Aftermarket Fans/Lights

ALL Cables are hidden very well as seen in pictures.
ALL booklets and CDS come with it.
Will come with a fresh install of XP Pro.

How much do you think I should sell it for?

Thanks for any help!

~Joe

ok, the point is for you not to know the total build cost. How much for the whole thing. One Price.

JFlo ---> $___.__

I know how much he paid for most of it . Nice case, that is same one I had that hardware in when it was mine....

I would say like $400-$500 since it is completely built....

Lol my suggestion was great. I did not feel like adding up the costs of the parts which would be easy to do. But i dont have to tell him the added total sence you know it. you are selling it locally so they will not know that you are "selling it for more than the parts are worth" simply because most ppl dont know a dam thing about computers. By adding 50 dollars to the total price you accualy gets a profit + get paid for the time you put into building and making it work properly.

BTW how is that jpelectonics **** going. I see that your name is now off of the ipod nano list.
