Need some objective opinions...
Hi, I am new to these forums... I was looking for a place with people who buy, build, customize, etc gaming PCs. Anyways, I am home from college and I am going to start saving up money from working this summer and my thought was to buy a new case, fans, etc for my PC now and move all the hardware, then sell it and use that plus saved money to build a new one. I have had this one for a while and have been upgrading, but at this point I need something better. So I will give you the specs and keep in mind it will be in a shiny new case and the buyers out there are not all as tech savvy as we are. What I want is your honest opinion on what you might pay, and what you think someone out there might pay.
Asus Motherboard Socket 478
Onboard Sound and Ethernet
3.4 Ghz P4 /w HT
2 GB PC 3200 RAM
Nvidia 7800GS 256MB w/ Water Cooling
Currently 2 SATA 250GB HDs and 1 EIDE 80GB HD
might take the HDs and buy a 120GB or something to put in fresh to sell
DVD-ROM (pretty generic)
Lite-On Dual Layer DVD Burner
It is not flashy at this point I know... I have had it a while, and the technology is a bit dated especially the 478 board and CPU, but it still holds its own on medium graphics of most games to date. If I saw this PC on ebay I know, since I want to play the best games coming out that this is not what I would want so I would not pay anything like 1000-1200$ for it (not that I really expect anyone to pay that) but someone less informed about PC technology might give me something decent, I was hoping maybe 500-800$. Then I would add in 400-500$ myself probably and building something in the range of 1000-1300$. Am I way off here... cause I really don't know, and If I am I wont be offended to hear it.
Thanks to anyone who can help.
