Just put it up on CraigsList for $800.00. If no one wants it lower it down to $750.00. It's that when you buy parts and build a system it deprecates faster than a new car.

yeah you can have direct x on a computer but the graphics may still not be able to use it as it will have limitations.

Not unless he uses DirectX 10, which is only in Vista, and no games actually use it right now.; The card fully supports DirectX 9.0c.

Actuallly, directX 9.0c was made for the card he has.

this isnt going to be a good place to try to sell it for that much.
as mentioned, a faster rig can be built for that much by most people on the forum.
ebay is going to be your best bet.
or you could place an ad in your local newpaper.
most people would not know they can build one for less.
its a good system, tho. i would expect you should be a ble to get around 7-800 for it.

BRAND NEW! So I wouldn't be willing to pay much more then that for a used rig, regardless of if you've only had it a little while. Computers don't have odometers, once its used, its used.
dont forget the RAM. that will add another hundred for cheap, slow stuff.
good stuff for 2gb $180ish minimum.
