There's a reason I only buy mid-range parts these days, the depreciation is so much smaller when the parts are cheap to begin with...

A quick valuation based on performance would lead me to believe $700 is a fair bit more than it's worth especially what with all the new parts that have been coming out...

If I help you with something, you think I'm the bomb, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the star under my post.

You probably won't be able to sell it for that much because someone can build something better for the same price. One way you might be able to squeeze more money out of it is by selling each part seperately instead of as a system.
