Default Computer Price

Hello everyone, My first Post

I was wondering how much money I would get if i sold my computer as it is at the mo.

Dont be harsh please, only new

Here goes....

3.0Ghz P4 E - 800MhZ FSB
2 Gb of Kingstone 400MhZ PC3200 RAM
800Mhz FSB GigaByte MoBo
The usual printer ports etc
Gigabit LAN Onboard
120 Gb Hdd - 1 x 80Gb - 1 x 40Gb
128Mb GeForce4 Ti 4200 AGP
Cd-ReWriter - 52x
3.5" Run of the mill floppy drive.
Fully modded case (UV cathodes, LED's, Lightening On front etc)
5.1 Non-Intergrated Sound Card
4 x USB2

I was just wondering wether it would be worth selling.

Cheers for any insights.

has it been used?

well graphics isn't the best, far from it. There is alot of ram, did you get it for video editing/graphics? I think maybe a bit over ~£450 (british) ~$600 usd if it has been used.

Yeah I'd say about £450 GBP.

It has been used, I got hav upgraded it very recently, the HDD's are wiped ready for a new installation. I use the RAM for game/video editing ye.

The GFX aint great its true, but they work for most games on the market atm, and for most non GFX intensive applications.

Here is a pic of the case....

Ty for your input

Sell it to some n00bs (ebay/local newspaper, etc) People who dont know a lot about computers see high numbers like 3GHz, 800MHz FSB, 240GB of storage, etc. I would see it selling for about $1500CAD

Intel E6750...........PSN: ELBATROP
XFX nForce 650i Ultra
Patriot PC2-6400 8GB (4x2GB)
eVGA 9800GT
36GB WD Raptor
120GB SG
Logitech X-530
Samsung SyncMaster 931c
Samsung SyncMaster 750s
Windows 7 Home Premium 64

not a lot imo, but like the other posters said, if you find a noob, they will probably pay a lot because of how cool the case looks (they'll lead to the conclusion that the comp is really good for gaming because of the case)

I don\'t play for fun, I play to win and winning is fun.

I agree. Selling it to some noob will get you much more money. Mabey have a set price in your mind, then have them name one and see how high you can go.
